Celebration of Life for Elena scheduled for Friday

A Celebration of Life for Elena Cadet will be held at 2 p.m., Friday, Nov. 27, at Diablo Country Club in Diablo. The 18-year-old Monte Vista graduate was killed Saturday in a car accident in Riverside.

She was born Feb. 8, 1991. She was a four-year varsity tennis player as well as captain of the tennis team at MVHS, and she continued her love for tennis at the UC Riverside. She also had an amazing voice and loved singing, playing piano and guitar for all of her family and friends. She also enjoyed spending time at the beach and above all shopping with her mother.

She is survived by her parents Steve and Vicky Cadet, her brother Zack, and her grandmothers Beatrice Maldonado and Vicki Cadet; aunts and uncles: Tom and Marisa Menning, Philip and Eleanor Maldonado, Alex and Cathy Maldonado, Gary and Emily Duarte, Hazel Maldonado, 12 cousins and her godparents Kevin and Kate Kelly. She was predeceased by her Uncle Peter and Grandfather Martin Cadet.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Elena Cadet Memorial Foundation, c/o Mary Wilhelmy, P.O. Box 58, Diablo 94528.
