Adrianna Gage HernandezMarch 8, 1995 ~ June 2, 2017 (age 22)
Adrianna Gage Hernandez, only 22, left her large family and many friends suddenly on Friday, June 2, 2017. She never met a purse or handbag she didn't like; was a lover of art, especially on her body; her cat, Lady; music of all kinds; crab legs or a good steak; anything purple; and just about any book.
Born in Carrollton, Texas on March 8, 1995, she was reared in Houston, TX as part of a large, often crazy but loving blended family that included 4 parents, 6 siblings, 5 sets of grandparents, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Her beaming smile, wit, compassion, and easy humor made her a guest-favorite server/bartender at several Pappasito's Restaurants for the past 4 years. Wow, could she mix a mojito! She recently completed her medical assistant certification and was planning to begin a medical career.
A 2013 graduate of Cypress Ridge High School, Adrianna discovered a passion of music and dance performing with the Cy-Ridge Band Color guard and Winter Guard. She served as captain of the team during her junior and senior year, and was mentor to many of the team members as she trained and lead performances on the football fields and in competitions across Texas. After high school she was invited to perform with the Blue Knights across the country and held a special place in her heart for Cypress Independent Color guard. Her flag, rifle, and sabre tosses were epic.
Though only 22, Adrianna loved, and was loved. She is survived by her parents: Naomi (mother) and Ken Dingle, Nathan (father) and Melissa Hernandez; siblings - Hannah (Dingle) (25) and Marcus Wratny, Jacob (25) and Allison Dingle, Caleb Dingle (22), Charles Bales (14), Amelia (9) and Nathan Hernandez (11); grandparents - Charles "Butch" and Candy Bales, Lillie and Bill McElroy, Charlie Bohme, Pete and Geneva Hernandez, and Beth and Jeff Miller.
Adrianna was preceded in death by her grandmother Gay Dingle-Craig, and great grandparents Ann Bass, Margarito and Lorenza Mendieta, Arlene Miller, and Irene Serata.
