We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Whispering Pines Funeral & Cremation Service
Adonya Kaye Pacheco, age 45, formerly of Cloquet, Minnesota, lost her battle with addiction and entered the spirit world on Monday, May 16, 2021.
Adonya, fondly known as “Bootsie”, was born July 24, 1976, to Salvador Pacheco and Teresa (Belcourt) Kingbird in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She grew up and attended school there. She later took training in drug and alcohol counselling.
Bootsie loved well, especially her family and many friends. They will miss her infectious laugh and a smile that warmed their hearts. She loved the outdoors and spent a lot of time taking a good walk. She loved to have her surroundings immaculate so it was not unusual for her to be cleaning up behind someone, and she absolutely had to have a color-coordinated outfit to wear. Bootsie was an avid reader, and she was ambitious, and she loved junk food, and she was humorous with a gift of being able to laugh at herself, calling herself a professional shoplifter, among other things. She will be remembered for her continuing efforts to overcome addiction and her desire to join her son Ramiro at his home in Cloquet.
Adonya will be lovingly remembered by her son Ramiro Pacheco (Marlee Castellano), granddaughter LilahLou Teresa Pacheco; father Salvador Pacheco; special aunt Dorinda Pacheco; brothers Salvador (Michelle) Pacheco, Santino Pacheco, Roberto Pacheco, and Sheldon Kingbird; sisters Ashley Pacheco, Angelica Pacheco, and Vanessa Stillday; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. She will be met in the spirit world by her daughter Teresa Marie Childs, mother Teresa Marie Belcourt, and grandparents Rosie and Darwin Cloud and Patricia “Granhey” Campbell.
A wake for Adonya will begin on Friday, May 20, 2022, at 4:00pm, at the Dave Morgan Community Center, Bena, Minnesota, and will continue until her service on Saturday, May 21, at 11:00am. Fred Desjarlait will serve as spiritual leader. Casketbearers caring for Adonya will be Alijah Pacheco, Richard Campbell, Sheldon Kingbird, Santino Pacheco, Roberto Pacheco, and Ramiro Pacheco. Honorary casketbearers will be best friend Katie Ramstad, Viviana Pacheco, Vicky Cree, Tish Cree, Suzelle Bellanger, Rachel Campbell, Markie Bellanger, and Marissa Lussier. Burial will follow in the Lakeview Cemetery, Bena, Minnesota.
