It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Adeline Morellato at the age of 80 years. She was born in Port Arthur and was a resident of Queen Street for 75 years, later moving to Southbridge Lakehead and Pioneer Ridge. She had been an employee of Central Park Lodge, working as a personal support worker and volunteer.
Adeline was a loving, generous person who cared for everyone she met and knew. She especially loved her brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces and great nieces nephews as well as her friends and their families. While she was in good health she attended St. Anthony's Church and Our Lady of Loretto Church with her brother David and his family. She enjoyed travelling to destinations such as Hawaii, Las Vegas, Southern Ontario, Duluth, Montreal, Toronto and Grand Marais. She loved shopping for everyone and she enjoyed playing Bingo and scratch tickets.

She was predeceased by her parents Vittorio and Frances Morellato; brothers Ernest and Dennis (June), sisters Claire (Michael) Ryan and Dolores (Herb) Orr and niece Rebecca Gallant.
