Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Adela was born June 21, 1941 in Mexico City, Mexico, to Jose and Angeles Ramirez.
She loved parties, the holidays, family BBQs, going to the theatre, listening to operas, doll collecting and a good glass of wine. But her greatest joy was spending time with her 18 grandchildren.
Adela worked for many years, as a cake decorator for Von’s grocery Stores in the San Diego area. She later worked as a gemologist and manager for Ben Bridge Jewelry Store, El Cajon, Ca until retirement.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband Mr. Harold B. Lien.
Adela is survived by brothers Javier Ramirez and Joe Ramirez of CA and her sisters Grace Vanderhagen of CA and Jennifer Harrod of TX. She is also survived by her seven children, David Butchart of NC, Harold Butchart of CA, Clara Berkman of VA, Angela Clonts of NC, Alicia Sindelar and Patricia Buck of CA and Yvette Wright of NC, and 18 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
