Adeline was a hard-working mother working multiple jobs most times as a seamstress and cook. She also made many blankets for family members. Some still have to this day. Her favorite color was green like her beautiful eyes. She was always cooking and baking, sending you off with a full belly and a full heart. If you sat and had conversations, you know she was a storyteller sharing her memories and life and making some up too. We will remember all her silly faces and artistic crafty ways along with her wonderful sense of humor. Adeline was a collector of many items. She enjoyed music and always knew how to have a good time or making one. She enjoyed and attended the Rocky Ford Fairs and always played bingo. She loved going to all all the Pueblo State Fairs and even visiting and taking a picture with a monkey. She went to every circus that came to town and threatened you if not. She loved zoo trips and sitting outside watching the birds. Her favorite pass time was anytime and anywhere that she could be with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved every single one of them.
