07/28/1960 - 11/29/2019
Leticia (Leti) Vega Altman Adams, died peacefully in her home on November 29, 2019 in Dallas, Texas. Leti was
diagnosed with MSA (Multiple System Atrophy) February of 2016. The disease took a strong hold on her life and
She fought it with every ounce of her strength, until it took her at the age of 59.
Leti was born in Los Angeles, California in 1960 and was raised in El Paso, Texas. After graduating college from
U.T. El Paso in 1984 with a degree in Psychology she moved to Dallas, and later lived in San Diego and Austin,
before settling permanently in Dallas. She was said her heart was in California, but her spirit was in Texas. She
married Brian Adams on July 11, 1998, in Dallas.
She was a patient’s advocate in health care for 30 years and had a caring passion for others. She had a heart as big
as Texas and chose to live a life of servitude. Leti’s infectious laugh brought smiles to everyone around her. She never
met a stranger and left an endearing impression on everyone she met. She had a unbelievable knack of finding and
talking to celebrities without the least bit of hesitation. She told corny jokes that often made her laugh more than others,
but that was the beauty of her personality. She had a passion for dance, music, art, poetry, photography, decorating,
and celebrating life.
She is survived by her husband Brian Adams of Dallas; son Matthew Altman of Los Angeles, CA; mother Carmen Vega
of El Paso; and five brothers; Richard Vega (Irene), Robert Vega, Roger Vega (Rose Mary), Ron Vega, and Ray Vega;
and several nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her father Ricardo Vega.
