Obituary for Esther Zavala de Adame

Mrs. Esther Zavala de Adame, age 86, passed away on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. At her residence in Worthington, MN. Esther was born on September 2, 1931, in Purepero, Mich., Mexico to Juan Zavala and Oliva Torrez. She was the fourth of a family of seven children. She was a devoted daughter, sister, mother and friend.
She married Salvador Adame in 1951. On January 5, 2017, they celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary with their family.
In December of 1960, she immigrated, with their two children, as residents to the United States, where her husband was waiting for them. They lived in Los Angeles, California. She was a very happy housewife. She loved to cook. But her passion was sewing. She also liked gardening and had different bird cages. She and her husband had many, many friends and relatives that enjoyed being with them. She was such a happy person that even the younger generations followed and ask for her advice. Esther was a very devoted Catholic.
All who knew her enjoyed her company, cooking and the fun and teasing that she made for everyone. But most of all she made a wonderful life for her husband and two children.
At noon on Tuesday 20th of February our Lord called her to his side and to reunite with her husband. Esther is survived by her daughter Francisca Olivia (Jesus) Ordaz, her son Salvador (Maria) Adame; grandchildren: Laura (Francisco) Magaña, Ana Patricia Ordaz, Dulce Maria (Philip) Willardson, Esther Cristina Adame, Jesus Alfredo Ordaz and Andre Salvador Adame; great grandchildren: Ana, Mary Medjugorje, Cathal Matthew and John Paul, all of Worthington; sister Celia Zavala and brother Jose Maria (Chema) Zavala.
She was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Soledad Zuniga and Etelvina Zavala, brothers Miguel Zavala and Juan Zavala.
