Adina’s family immigrated to Canada when she was 2, settling in Beechy, Sask. She accepted Jesus as Saviour and remained a faithful member of Clearbrook MB Church all her life. Adina worked in Abbotsford and Vancouver as a homemaker and babysitter. She cared for her aging parents until their deaths. She volunteered at Mennonite Central Committee and the Golden Age Society’s (Garden Park) kitchen. Adina had an open heart, always willing to lend a helping hand. Her nieces and nephews loved her Mennonite cooking.
