             Adela Marie Kutach Farley peacefully passed from this earth on January 16, 2019, at the age of 88 years 6 months in Angleton, Texas. She was born on July 16, 1930, near El Campo, Texas to Benedict and Annie Kutach. Adela, her parents and three sisters lived and worked on their farm until the family moved to the Carancahua Community in 1940.

            Left to cherish her memory are Adela’s family; son, Benny Farley and wife Yvonne; daughter, Marilyn Mallory; grandsons, Eric Mallory and wife Stephanie, Chris Farley and wife Marcey, and Brett Ringo; great-grandsons, Seth Mallory, Joshua Farley, and Colton Farley. She is also survived by sisters, Helen Poessel, and Thelma Orsak and husband Bennie; and nieces, nephews and cousins.

            She is preceded in death by her husband of nearly 68 years, Virgil Farley; son, Lawrence; her parents; sister, Annie Orsak and husband Joe; and brother-in-law, Louis Poessel.

            Adela and Virgil lived, worked and were a part of the Carancahua Community for the majority of their 67+ year marriage.

She was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Palacios, Texas, KJZT, a women’s Catholic Fraternal organization, Woodmen Life and a 65-year member of the Jackson County Texas Extension Homemaker’s.
