Her knitting club began as a group of young ladies in their 20’s and ended when she was 85. Adeline remained in the family home until 2010 when she moved into McKellar Place. Here she enjoyed the company of her ladies' group having their afternoon coffee, eating dinner with her friend Mary and attending bingo & other events.
