She was born on November 30, 1927, the daughter of John and Emma (Roes) Ropp. Adeline was a member of Maple View Mennonite Church and found great meaning in her faith. A homemaker all of her life, Adeline was an avid reader and quilter until her eyesight prevented her from continuing these activities, and had volunteered at the Milverton Thrift Store prior to moving to Nithview. She enjoyed flower and vegetable gardening, playing table games (where she was known to try to cheat!),
and ice skating. She will be remembered for her loving care of her family, a freezer supplied with home baked goods, the best stuffing, playing ball in the front yard, and her infectious smile and laughter.

Special grandmother of Madison, Sierra, Peyton, Brendan (Blake), Aaron, Talia (Alex), Cameron (Dianna), and Kyle.
