She was most proud of her family who celebrated many special occasions together where she could always be found on the dance floor. She never missed sending a birthday/special occasion card.
Adeline was a member of Our Lady of Sorrows church. She enjoyed playing bingo, cooking spaghetti and meatballs, playing cards and sewing. Her handmade Christmas stockings and scupella parties are family favorites. Adeline also enjoyed her Monday golf and lunch outings with friends. In the evening you could find Adeline watching her favorite tv show Wheel of Fortune or rooting for the Yankees, Mets, SU, BU or ND teams (depending on which family member might be visiting). While Adeline also enjoyed scratch off tickets and casinos, it can be said that she has finally hit the jackpot and is reunited with her family and friends in heaven.
The family would like to send a special thank you to Lori and Louise for their additional care giving as well as the staff at Lourdes Hospital and Ideal Living Center.
