    I have thought of Adelaide many times over the years. Wondering where she was. So sorry I didn’t know. She was so sweet, the kids all called her Granny. I worked for her and Randall many years ago.
    A great lady. God will be glad to have her.

  3. Tim and Karen Shingledecker says:

    We have lots of great memories of visiting Adelaide and spending time with her in the summer. I won’t forget that she and Randall were the ones who got me to my wedding just in time! We had some fun times. We will miss her.
