January 13, 1922 - July 16, 2020
Adeline was born in Necedah, Wisconsin on January 13, 1922 to Charles and Ella Stern and grew up in Chicago. She met and married Arthur during World War II and they settled in Sylmar in 1947. Adeline was a friend and caring neighbor for generations of families, living there through 2010, having been preceded in death by her husband of 50 years in 1994. Thereafter, Adeline received the extra care she needed at Mountview Retirement Community in Montrose and the near daily visits from her children until her peaceful passing this year after 98 years, 6 months and 3 days of living among us. Adeline actively participated in local, state and national elections, working at the polls for about 50 years. Her children were fortunate to have a wonderful mother and talented homemaker (fresh apple pies, German potato salad, and much more) during their youth. Practical and generous by nature, she could stretch a nickel to more than 5 cents without causing concern or notice and lived well and happily with her books, flowers, garden and cat. Adeline is survived by her sister Dorothy Schimmel in Kansas, cousin Sylvia Jaeger in Wisconsin, children Bill (Lien) Anderson, Deborah (Greg) Bowers, and Nancy (Gregory) Williams, four grandchildren and three great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Utter McKinley provided mortuary services and interment was at San Fernando Mission Cemetery on July 31 st where she was reunited with Arthur once again and forevermore. Adeline was fond of children and families. If you wish to make memorial contributions in her honor, then consider a children’s hospital or service provider in your area, Smile Train, Habitat for Humanity, or a local family housing facility or family food bank.
