Mother enjoyed the company of her family and friends. As a young mother she always volunteered for our school parties and school functions. She was a friend to all and never forgot a name or a face. We all we remember how at home she would often spontaneously burst into song when she was reminded of either the lyrics or title of a song. Mother’s favorite interests were her faith, family and movies. Mama was involved in several charitable groups at church, she served as a catechist, she was a “Pink Lady” at our local hospital, she fostered children, she loved visiting family and friends at the nursing home, and she enjoyed delivering meals on wheels. Our mother, Adela, was a retiree baker from the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD; employed 35 years.
Mom is survived by daughters Becky Millan and husband, Julian; Lillian Archuleta and husband, Oscar Sr.; and Barbara Castillo and husband, David all of Pecos; and Terry Villagran and husband, Jaime of Odessa; sons, John R. Salcido and wife, Rosie of Pecos; Dan Salcido and Diane Rodriguez of San Antonio; and Martin Arreguy and wife, Marina of Pecos. Also, brothers Eugenio Arreguy and wife, Rosie of Rockland, Ca.; Ralph Arreguy and wife, Betsy of Elkgrove, Ca.; Bobby Arreguy and wife, Elva of Odessa; and Ricky Arreguy of Pecos.
Mom also leaves to cherish her memory 19 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren along with many very much-loved nieces, nephews and friends.
