Jade Erwin

November 12, 2002 — March 21, 2020

Elgin, Texas

Jade’s adoptive parents David and Betsy never thought they would have a one year old at the age of fifty.  Diapers, daycare and such.  But what a blessing Jade was to us.  She was Betsy’s best companion and the best daughter we could have asked for, as was her brother Daniel Patton was when he was a kid. We had so much fun.

She brought joy and laughter and liveliness to our house. Great Grandmother (Grammy) Janie Sanchez asked us to take Jade.  Because of the love and kindness of this wonderful woman our lives were changed and enriched forever.  Jade spent many weekends with Janie and her husband David Sanchez (deceased) and they spoiled her rotten.  Thank you Grammy for everything.

She has a huge Sanchez family, to huge to tell all their names, we know they all loved her.  Her grandparents are Betty and Alan Castellow.

Jade was a bright spirit.  She loved singing, dancing, music, traveling, her job, all animals, - especially cats, writing and food – most of all international foods.  She was creative and cheerful.  Since first grade she was a member of Girl Scout Troop 2334 in Elgin. She camped, travelled, sold cookies with her faithful and loyal Girl Scout friends and together they experienced lots and lots of fun times.

Jade was a small person with a big personality.  She had the ability to get along with many different types of people and had many friends who will miss her dearly.

Her brother Daniel Patton, aunt Barbara Floca, niece Scarlett Patton and her ‘sort-of-niece’ Lillian McLemore were her special people.  Her sweet and beloved dog Evey is still waiting for Jade to walk in the door.

Our lives will be so sad without her.  But I am so grateful to have had the time with Jade.  My beautiful girl.

Jade was born on November 12, 2002 to Antonia Erwin and Theodore Finto.  She left this earth on March 21, 2020.

Her body will lie in state at the Elgin Funeral Home on Monday, March 30th from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM.  A private Graveside Service will be conducted at the Youngs Prairie Cemetery on Tuesday, March 31st.
