It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and friend, Deltha “Adeline” Vadnai on Friday, November 5, 2004 at the Sarcee Carewest.
Adeline was born in Prud’homme, SK on January 8, 1941. She attended the Technical Collegiate in Saskatoon, SK before moving to Calgary in 1959. She married Steve Frank Vadnai in 1962. Adeline worked for the Alberta Department of Justice until she was diagnosed with brain cancer in 1988. Adeline had an extraordinary passion for life and fought her illness with dignity, grace and strength. She will be forever remembered as an outstanding and dedicated mother who loved her family unconditionally. Adeline took great enjoyment in her family, especially her grandchildren: Devon, Evan, Lauren, Avery, Ava, and Samuel Aaron.
Adeline is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Stephen & Shelley and Les & Janice, her sisters, Ann of Calgary and Jennie of Seattle, WA, and her six grandchildren. Adeline was predeceased by her husband Steve in 1981, a brother, John, as well as her parents, Peter and Caroline.
