Ms. Felix passed away peacefully on March 4 at her home in Grass Valley. She was 47.
Ms. Felix was born on June 11, 1959, in Copenhagen, Denmark, to Major Jorgen A. Adolph of the Danish Army and Eliane Manset Adolph, who was born in France. Ms. Felix and her family left Denmark in 1965, and she grew up in Santa Barbara. She moved to Grass Valley in 1988. Ms. Felix was very proud of her Danish heritage and maintained many of its traditions.
While living in Santa Barbara, Ms. Felix and her ex-husband established and ran an electrical contracting business, which continued operating in Grass Valley. Mrs. Felix personally owned and managed a private child-care center. She loved children very much and had a natural rapport with them.
Ms. Felix spent much time volunteering for the Food Bank and ASPCA in Grass Valley. Her greatest joy was found in caring for her daughter, Mindy, cultivating her flower and vegetable garden, collecting chicken eggs in the chicken coop with her daughter and playing with her dogs, cats and birds.
Ms. Felix is survived by her 12-year old daughter, Mindy; sisters Lisbeth Adolph of Roseville and Michelle Claussen of Granite Bay; 15-year old niece, Katrina Claussen of Granite Bay and all her beloved animals.
Contributions can be made to the Grass Valley ASPCA and to Hospice of the Foothills, which cared for her at the end.
Arrangements are under the direction of Chapel of the Angels Mortuary.
