    I worked with Adeline for a short time at ConAgra in the 80s but when we crossed paths over the years she was always very pleasant. Trying to balance that ledger to the penny was sometimes a challenge but she was always very patient. She was quite a gal and will be missed. May she rest in piece.

  2. Susan Alaya says

    Sorry for your loss. I worked with Adeline at Preserve International as a temporary office clerk. Adeline could work circles around anyone and so dedicated to her work. An example for us all to follow. An awesome woman.

    It is with great sadness that I write this condolence to your family,

    ] met Adeline when I began working At ConAgra. We developed a friendship and have remained friends since the closure of ConAgra. We had just talked and were going to have lunch together on October 7th; needless-to-say I was shocked that she had died. We have shared stories of our families and challenges through the years. Your Mom truly loved her family; her sons, daughter-in-law, grandchildren and greats. This past year we shared the challenges of widowhood,

    I am unable to attend her serviceI, but feel blessed that she was a part of my life. My prayers are with you all. May you find peace in the beautiful memories you have of time shared with her. Know she is always in your heart.

    God’s Blessings

    I’m in sorrow to read the passing of Adeline…she was always supportive and a pleasure to work with over 30 years ago when I was selling Pens & Pencils!! Then came the bowling buddies for a short time when I was always the one to boost up our handicap. To her family, children and grandchildren, a big hug! ~ Kathy Miedema Ray
