Adella’s children were the light of her life and her grandchildren and great grandchildren brought her even more joy than their parents before them. She loved gardening. She enjoyed sitting outside in the cool afternoon shade to water her plants and flowers. She especially loved visits from friends and family when they could sit and visit around her trees and plants. She worked hard helping to provide for her children while still keeping house and preparing meals. She loved the time she spent cleaning houses for close friends. Everyone always looked forward to her signing up to send food to various events and fund raisers. Anyone that ever enjoyed her meals were especially fond of her rice.

She is preceded in death by her husband Estevan Rodriguez, her mother and father, and brother Domingo Salazar. She will also be joining her two baby boys in Heaven. She is survived by son Martin Rodriguez and his wife Norma, son Eddie Rodriguez and Robin Sebolt, daughter Sandra Espinosa and her husband Juan, daughter Sara Rodriguez Arevalo and husband Mario, son Jimmy Joe Rodriguez and wife Danielle, daughter Samantha Rodriguez, daughter Sabrina Rodriguez, and bonus children Farah Vargas, Paul Vargas, and Jose Osornio. Her grandchildren Joseph Rodriguez and wife Audrey, Johnathan Espinosa and wife Yadira, Preston Rodriguez, Sasha Ulrich and Everett, Bailey Espinosa, Courtney Espinosa, Eddykah Rodriguez, Abi Arevalo, Kayden Rodriguez, Kayty Espinosa, Sebastian Rodriguez, Storey Rodriguez, Sabella Rodriguez, Lindsey Rodriguez, and bonus grandchild Paige Wallace. Her great-grandchildren Sandra Espinosa, Pedro Rodriguez, Ivan Rodriguez, Scarlett Espinosa, Sabrina Espinosa, Breanna Villanueva, and Annalysa Villanueva.

Her children will miss visiting with her while drinking coffee and eating blueberry muffins and her grandchildren will miss the endless supply of gum. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
