Adelaide Raetz, 88, passed away on June 12, 2019, surrounded by her family

Adelaide was born on December 16, 1930 in Millsap to Jorge and Teresa Uribe. She was one of 8 children. Later, she became the Fort Wolters Base Commander’s secretary, where she met Joseph Raetz. They married in 1957.

Adelaide and Joseph both retired from the federal government before she began her second career as a full-time caregiver for Joe, a devoted grandmother and an extreme sports fan. Her passions were faith, family and football.

The family wishes to express their appreciation to the staff of The Covenant Place of Burleson for their care and compassion.

She is survived by her son, Timothy and wife, Mandi; grandsons, Chase and wife, Taylor and their son, Raleigh; Heath and wife, Megan and their daughter, Bellamy; granddaughter, Shelbi; twin brother, Eusebio Uribe; sister, Marcella Uribe; and many beloved nieces and nephews.
