August 5, 2018
Passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at the age of 92. Survived by many nieces and nephews and their families who all called her Tante. Predeceased by her husband Edward and all her siblings, Rome, Gaston, Herman and Jeanette.
Adela grew up in Espanola, ON and then lived in Toronto. After she married, they relocated to the Okanagan in the 1960’s and developed the largest vineyard of that time, The Monashee Estates Vineyard. They square-danced their way around the world, travelled across Canada and loved camping. She lived a rich and full life.
Tante dedicated her life to helping the less fortunate through the Society of Saint Vincent De Paul of the Central Okanagan. She touched all who met her and will be remembered as the much loved Energizer Bunny who will be greatly missed.
Adela loved bright colors so please dress accordingly at her Funeral Service on Monday, August 13, 2018 at 11:00 am at St Pius X Catholic Church, 1077 Fuller Ave., Kelowna, BC, with Father Gerald Sekanga officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Society of Saint Vincent De Paul of the Central Okanagan, www.ssvpokv.ca.
