Adrienne Claire Riley (1954-2012)

My sister Adrienne Riley died Dec. 17, 2012, at Eden Medical Center, Castro Valley, California with her husband, Mike, and their children Kevin, Megan, and Amy at her side. She was born July 22,1954 in Willows, California, to Howard and Wilma (Wells) Detling.  She was Howard and Wilma’s third child and first of two daughters. 

After graduating from Enterprise High School in Redding, California, in 1972, Adrienne attended the University of California at Berkeley, where she met and married Michael Lloyd Riley on September 7, 1974. Adrienne earned a BS degree in Nursing and a BA degree in Human Development from California State University, Hayward.
Adrienne began her career as a Registered Nurse in 1981 with Kaiser Hospital Oakland; and since 1995 had been associated with the Maternal Child Department at Valley Care Medical Center in Pleasanton, California, where she and her family resided for many years. Adrienne enjoyed reading, sewing, traveling, shopping, San Jose Sharks hockey, UC Berkeley football, and playing Bunko. Adrienne’s passion in life was her family; especially her love for her three children, and her granddaughter, Madison. In her professional career, she was known by physicians and nursing colleagues as devoting extraordinary care to the welfare and well-being of her patients.
Adrienne is survived by her husband, Mike; and her  children: son Kevin, his wife Stacey Powell Riley, and their daughter Madison of Brentwood; daughter Megan and husband Patrick Bowen of Concord; and daughter Amy of San Ramon. She is also survived by three brothers: Doug Detling of Medford, Oregon; Martin Detling of Eureka, California; and Wade Detling of Deer Park, Washington; and her sister, Valerie Liggatt of Redding, California. Her caring and loving spirit will be missed by all who knew her. 
A Celebration of Adrienne’s Life was conducted Jan. 13 at Valley Community Church in Pleasanton, California.
