Ada Owens

February 13, 1945 — March 13, 2024

Aransas Pass

Ada Bell Vaden Owens, 79, beloved Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother was called to her Heavenly home on Wednesday, March 13, 2024. She entered this world on February 13, 1945, in Crockett, Texas, born to Kenneth and Gladys Vaden. 


Ada is preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, David Owens Sr., and her brothers Willie Vaden, Robert Vaden, and Duke Vaden. 


Left to cherish memories and carry on her legacy are her children - David Owens Jr. (Shanna), Justin Owens, and Jason Owens (Daphney) of Aransas Pass, Texas, and Wesley Owens (Dana) of Ingleside, Texas; grandchildren - Christopher, James, Corwin, Ellyn, Cameron, Shelby, Taylor, Zoe, Zack, Jasmine, Jared, Anna, Jennifer, Woody; and great-grandchildren - Ada Mae, Riley, Owen, Oli, Bella, Aiden, Aaron, Jaxon, Krew, Paxton, Xavier, and Avry. Her siblings Elizabeth “Liz” Beebe, Sherri Smithwick, James Vaden, Cecil “Bo” Vaden, and Billy Joe “Seafood” Vaden.


Ada bestowed a love of learning and creativity to her entire family. Best known for artistic quilts created with passion, she owned and operated Ada Owens Quilting Services and worked in conjunction with her sister Liz at Two Sisters Sewing for 22 years. After 14 years of public service, she retired as the City Secretary from the City of Aransas Pass. An accomplished belly dancer with a black belt in karate, she was also a licensed handgun instructor who proudly supported women’s defense. She was a member of the local Moose Lodge for many years and was active with the local library. Ada’s confidence and inner strength are cherished by her close-knit community and are present in her family today and forever.  


Ada will be greatly missed as heaven gains another beautiful soul. 


As per Ada’s wishes, the family will not be having services. In lieu of flowers or money for the family, please find a local sewing group/club and donate in Ada’s name so that someone else may learn how to sew.
