Adela Alvarado Valenzuela entered Eternal Rest on Jan. 20, 2021. She was born on Feb. 2, 1962 in Miami, AZ to Mercy and Joe Alvarado.
Adela grew up in Globe attending Holy Angels School and graduating from Globe High School in 1980.
She married her high school sweetheart, Danny Valenzuela, on March 23, 1985. They had two children Daniel and Jessica. Adela and Danny made their residence in Superior, Arizona.
Adela had a successful career. She was so proud when she passed her fiduciary test to earn her Arizona Fiduciary License. That led to her last career position as a Fiduciary for Gila County. She also managed the Sprouse Reitz in Superior for several years and worked at National Bank in Globe, Superior and Florence.
Adela was determined to live life to the fullest despite fighting rheumatoid arthritis most of her life and having numerous surgeries because of the arthritis.
She loved being with family and thoroughly enjoyed family get togethers. She especially enjoyed getting together with her sisters for Sister trips. One of her greatest joys was being Nana and spending time with four of her grandchildren during her last month of life. She thoroughly enjoyed hearing her name screamed by her grandchildren. It brought her much joy and happiness.
Adela is preceded in death by her husband, Danny, and her mom and dad.
She is survived by her son, Daniel; daughter, Jessica Cruz (Shayna); six grandchildren, Nevaeh, Abigail, Micaela, Raymond, Jasper, and Navena; brother, Joe M. Alvarado (Paulette); sisters, Becky Mesa (Tony), Dody Tate (Rick), and Mary Anne Alvarado-Dennis (Walt); and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Those that knew Adela, described her as wonderful, loving person. Adela loved everyone and will be greatly missed.
A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
