Obituary for Idelta Maria Lima

July 31, 1933 - September 29, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 85


Idelta Maria Lima passed away at her home in San Antonio, Texas on September 29, 2018 with her family looking over her. She was born Idelta Maria Raposo on the Island of San Miguel in the Azores, Portugal. Her parents were Eduino and Rosa Raposo and her only sister was Teresa Raposo Grande. Most knew her as Adele since she was not fond of Idelta. Adele was married to "The love of her life", Joseph C. Lima, on May 30, 1954. She is survived by her husband and her three children the "Sunshine of her life", Madalene, Richard, and Michael. Adele had several grand children: Brian Cohen, Brent Cohen, Kyle Cohen, Cody Lima, and Ciera Lima.

Adele will be remembered for being a tough woman who was the "boss" of the family. She raised all of her children while traveling across the globe with her husband who worked for The Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES). Their adventures took them to many places in the continental United States as well as abroad: Terceira, Azores, Bermuda, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, The Philippines, and Honolulu, Hawaii. They selected San Antonio as their retirement spot after Joseph retired and since their closest friends, the Trevino's also retired there. Adele had a connection to Boston, Massachusetts where her Mother was born and her family lived for years. It was an area of many fond memories since several of Joseph's siblings had emigrated there from the Azores.

Her family and all who had the pleasure of her friendship will miss Adele.
