I was sorry to hear of the loss of Adeline. She was the last of the first cousins of dad.

My sympathy to the family. I have known Addie for many years and always enjoyed visiting with her. She was such a special friend to my sister-in-law, Lorraine Sorteberg, and Lorraine's sister, Margaret from Iowa. They're loved to play bingo! God bless her memory. Nannette Bagstad

So sorry to hear of Adeline's passing. She was a very sweet lady. My mom, Rose Roller, treasured her friendship while baking at Paula's cafe and playing bingo. May she rest in peace.
