“Our Savior, Jesus Christ, has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Let us remember with thanksgiving what God has done through His servant Adelaide.
Adelaide E. Mullen, daughter of William and Elsie Dyke, was born in Regina Saskatchewan, Canada on Nov. 19th, 1939, and was baptized into the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit on December 10th, 1939. She confessed her baptismal faith in the rite of Confirmation on September 7th, 1952, and received the medicine of immortality, Christ’s life-giving Body and Blood. Adelaide was joined together in holy matrimony to Peter on August 20th, 1972. On May 31st, 2017, Adelaide, at the age of 77, fell asleep in Jesus. She is survived by her husband, Peter, her brothers, Gerry and Lorne, and her sisters, Gertie and Marlene.
Adelaide worked joyfully for many years in intensive care nursing, always seeking to serve where people needed the most care. At home, she loved to play the piano, to sing, and was a vigorous reader. She will be deeply missed by all those whose lives she has touched.
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the Name of the Lord. We give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ, our Lord, for our sister, Adelaide.”
