South Houston, TX

Estrellita “Star” Sanchez Torres, beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend to many, passed away on February 25th, 2024. She was born on November 16th, 1979, and brought an abundance of love and joy into the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know her. Estrellita's life was defined by her unwavering devotion to her family. Her adoring husband, Ricardo, handsome sons, Ricardito Isaiah, and Alexander Benito, and her princess, Madelynn Hope, were truly the center of her universe; she poured every ounce of love and energy into creating a warm and nurturing home for them. Her laughter filled their days with lightness and happiness while her endless support provided strength during difficult times. Estrellita's dedication knew no bounds as she went above and beyond to ensure that those she loved felt cherished at every moment. Her vibrant spirit extended far beyond the walls of her own home. Estrellita had an extraordinary gift for making others feel included and loved. Whether it was through hosting unforgettable gatherings or simply lending a listening ear when someone needed comfort, she touched countless lives with her kindness. Her ability to bring people together created lasting bonds that will continue to thrive in the wake of her passing. Estrellita's zest for life shone brightly through everything she did. She threw the best parties where music flowed freely, delicious food abounded, and laughter echoed late into the night. Her infectious smile could lift even the heaviest hearts while her warmth made everyone feel instantly at ease in her presence. In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, Estrellita also took refuge in her mother, Enedelia Sanchez, whom she often leaned on for guidance and strength. They shared an unbreakable bond that connected their souls for eternity. Estrellita was a loving, fierce, and protective sister to four brothers and two sisters. The memories created during holidays, birthdays, and special events spent together or simple moments shared over meals will forever be treasured by those left behind. The loss of Estrellita has left an indelible void in our hearts that can never be filled; however, we take solace in knowing that she is now watching over us from above with that same radiant smile we have come to cherish so dearly. She leaves behind a legacy of boundless love which will continue to inspire all who were lucky enough to have known her. May you rest peacefully among the stars until we meet again.

El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta, en verdes pastos el me hace reposar donde brota agua fresca me conduce. Fortalece mi alma, por el camino del bueno me dirige por amor de su nombre. Aunque pase por quebradas muy oscuras no temo ningún mal, porque tú estás conmigo, tu bastón y tu vara me protegen. Me sirves ala mesa frente a mis adversarios, con aceites tu perfumas mi cabeza y rellenas mi copa. Me acompaña tu bondad y tu favor mientras dura mi vida, mi mansión será la casa del Señor por largo, largo tiempo.

Adeline Jean Maddux

May 15, 1935 - Dec 27, 2023

South Houston, TX

Adeline Jean Maddux, age 88, of South Houston, Texas passed away on Wednesday, December 27, 2023. Adeline Maddux was born Adelina Di Paolo in Gallup, New Mexico. She is a first generation American, the youngest of ten children born to Italian immigrant parents, Panfilo and Francesca Di Paolo on May 15, 1935. She has four children, Jack and Joseph(wife, Kathy), with her first husband, Red Wilson, and Kim(husband, Edward) and Cole with her husband, Harvey. They were self-employed in the produce business and moved from New Mexico to Phoenix, AZ where they lived a few years before settling in South Houston, Texas. Together they owned South Houston Farmers Market. Harvey Passed away suddenly in 1972, leaving Adeline to run a business and raise four children on her own at the age of 37. She continued the business until 1975 when she was given the opportunity to become supervisor of the City of South Houston Parks Department for Mayor Gene Kitch. She held that position until her retirement in 1995. Following retirement, Adeline enjoyed traveling with many friends, one being Mr. Kitch. Together they traveled to many countries including England, Spain, Italy and Holland. They took numerous cruises all over the Caribbean and to Alaska and Hawaii. On one memorable cruise in 2002, they were actually chased by Hurricane Isadore which seemed to change course and was predicted to hit in the area of each port their ship tried to escape to, from the Cayman Islands to the Yucatan Peninsula to the upper Gulf Coast. However, Gene and Adeline bravely outran the hurricane and managed to complete that cruise unharmed while others in their group disembarked in Louisiana, rented cars and drove home! Adeline's favorite place to visit by far was Las Vegas. She enjoyed being a "Lucky Lady" on the dollar slot machines and playing Keno. Adeline's four children gave her eight grandchildren who have given her ten great-grandchildren so far. The whole family gathered May 2014 to celebrate her 84th birthday and had portraits taken to commemorate the occasion. Her children are truly astonished at the large family they have become due to the life of one amazing strong woman.
