Aunt Adina was a kind and generous lady. Her and her family took me into their home, when I was 11 years old. They provided me with love, shelter and even my 1st single bedroom. Aunty would take me clothes shopping often, I think she enjoyed having a girl around the house. She taught me how to cook and even how to pluck and cook a chicken. As a family we traveled to many wonderful places, like Banff AB. Las Vegas and Sandiego CA where we spent Christmas one year. I have many great memories with her, and Renee and my Uncle Bob. Peace be with you Aunty. Jesus loves you and so do I. Love 🤍 Darlene, Kurt and family. - Posted by: Darlene Funk (Niece) on: Mar 18, 2023
