During these years they farmed and raised one son, Blair who currently lives in Minneapolis, MN.

After retiring, they moved to West Fargo, spending winters in Palmetto, FL. Lloyd died in 1988 and was sorely missed. Adeline continued wintering in Florida where she had an active social life. She pursued a lifelong love of literature and politics; always staying abreast of world events. She was most content with a great book.

Adeline was the last of her siblings to pass, and was the only one to die of old age. While, she was tiny in size, she was fierce in spirit and lived and died very much on her own terms. She is survived by four sister-in-laws, numerous nieces and nephews, and her son Blair.

Funeral services will be Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 11:00 AM in Cornerstone Community Church in Cooperstown. Visitation will immediately precede the service at 10:00 AM. Spring interment will be at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Jamestown, ND. Arrangements with the Cooperstown Funeral Chapel.
