Adriene Lynne Faulkner was born on January 24, 1962 in Maryland. She spent time in various states across the country before moving to California.
She recognized the importance of technical education and attained a degree in Technology and Programming. Adriene pulled herself up by the bootstraps working her way up to becoming an Analyst at National Beverage, where she was employed for 22 years. She worked there until she couldn’t work any longer. Adriene really loved her job !
When Adriene was not working she cared for our beloved dog Beejay and loved hiking in the woods and wilderness. She loved the Redwoods and the California coast. She was adept at recognizing trees and flowers and used her time in the woods to identify various species of plants and trees.
Care and giving came naturally to Adriene. Even when hospitalized Adriene was donating to her favorite charities.
Adriene is survived by her loving husband Bala Ayres, stepson Declan, parents Ellen & Robie and her brother and sister-in-law John & Sarah and nieces and nephew and our beloved puppy.
