One of the great joys in Adelina’s life was baking. She loved to bake cookies, pies and cakes. She loved to share her treats with her family and friends but especially with her grandchildren who particularly adored her chocolate chip cookies and pecans. and strawberry pies. She baked and gave a cake every week when she attended Holy Family bingo nights, where her strawberry shortcake was always very popular. Besides baking, Adelina loved to play bingo and any type of slot machine. She enjoyed the many adventures she would share with the love of her life, Jaime in Las Vegas, Louisiana and Eagle Pass.
