Adeline Frances Micheletti, passed away on February 23, 2019 at age 88. Addie, as she was known by her friends and family, is survived by sister Carmen Vanzandt, daughters Vicki Fowler and Kathleen Heidemann, son John Sr. and his wife Deborah, grandsons Alex Sr. and Robbie Sr. and friend and companion Darrell "Rocky" Wilson.
She is preceded in death by her brothers Ignacio Montes, Victor Montes, Hector Montes and Richard Montes, first husband John Senior and second husband Othello Micheletti, parents Victor and Natividad Montes, foster parents John and Gertrude Griffin.
Addie was born on May 24, 1930 in San Francisco, CA to Victor and Natividad Montes. She was orphaned at an early age and raised by John and Gertrude Griffin in Loomis, CA. After graduating from Placer HighSchool, she joined the Army during the Korean War.
Addie was a die-hard San Francisco 49ers fan. She and Rocky would spend many hours watching and cheering on the 49ers, San Francisco Giants and Golden State Warriors. She would be at her happiest when loved ones came to visit and she could fuss all over them. When her grandsons attended college nearby, she would beam with pride as they attended bingo games with her at the Senior Center or when she would visit her children and make them their favorite meals. She had such happy times and great memories vacationing with Rocky, his children Glenn Wilson, Tim Wilson, Tami Steele and their families.
A memorial is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. Saturday, March 16, 2019 at Park View Memorial Chapel, Manteca, California. A private internment for immediate family and American Legion Veterans will be held at the Santa Nella Central California Veteran's Cemetery.
A celebration of life for friends and family will be held and noticed at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation in memory of Addie be made to the American Legion Post 249 Foundation, 220 E. Yosemite Ave., Manteca, CA. 95336.
