    Our deepest sympathy to Adeline’s loving family; we know that your hearts are broken and we pray that God blesses you with His peace and comfort. Adeline will be sadly missed by her St. Luke’s family; she faithfully worshiped and served God at St. Luke’s for many, many years and touched so many lives. I will always fondly remember her as one of the VBS snack ladies (how many cups of kool-aide did she pour over the years?), Sunday School offering collector (sitting in the back pew every week with a manila envelope patiently waiting for the end of the Sunday School opening to gather up the children’s offerings), and those monthly (or so) phone calls from Adeline recruiting volunteers to greet on Sunday morning (I could NEVER say no to Adeline!), and so much more! We will all miss you terribly and our hearts are sad, but we know that you are now home with your Lord. And we thank and praise God for the blessing that you have been to your St. Luke’s family.

    Dear Barbara and George,
    So very sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. I had the good fortune to work with Adeline many, many years ago at the Union Federal in Boston. We reconnected a few years ago and had a number of wonderful phone conversations. I’ll remember Adeline as a thoroughly delightful lady. Our thoughts are with you all.
    Best regards Jackie Viscarolasaga
