Adeline grew up on the family farm outside of Mundare, but travelled widely after she moved to Edmonton, Vermilion, Toronto, Michigan, Ottawa, and then back to Edmonton. As she was raising her family, she learned the craft of pottery, began selling her work and taught pottery classes for many years. After retiring from pottery, she picked up her childhood mandolin and joined the St. Nicholas Mandolin Ensemble. She loved meeting people, travelling to new places, and was devoted to her church. Her grandchildren will always remember playing mini-golf and making chocolate muffins with Nana.

I was going through old family photos (Adeline’s mother Nancy and my father, Peter Yarmoloy were sister and brother) and decided to look up Adelines whereabouts and was so sad to learn of her passing over a year ago. Adeline and I roomed together my first year at U of Alberta. She was so wonderful to me. I regret not seeing her years ago. I have lived in Texas for a long time. I send my love to Mel and her children.

We are so sorry to hear of Adeline’s passing. Our family has been so fortunate to have had her in our lives in so many different roles; friend, teacher and neighbour at the lake. As an artist she set such a wonderful example for others and freely shared so much of her artistic passions. Adeline inspired many and could rescue any ceramic disaster! She will be deeply missed by our family.
