Sr Adelaide resided at the Laboure residence for the past 6 years or so where her assignment was part of the Apostleship of Prayer even as she depended on care from others for her own well-being. She was always known for her smile, her sense of humor, her tall stature, her kindness, her pride in her Texas roots, her organization skills, her creativity, her love and care for every person around her insisting on protecting and respecting each person’s dignity. She was loved and respected by her peers and almost everyone she met. While at Laboure, she discovered her talent for art in the forms of painting, drawing, ceramics, coloring. She spent hours creating beautiful pictures with an array of colors. She had beautiful penmanship and wrote wonderful letters, created stunning scapebooks and designed lovely greeting cards in years past. She was also known to sing and change up the lyrics of known songs to entertain or describe her friends.

Sr Adelaide was preceded in death by her parents, Antone and Annie Kulhanek, her brothers Daniel, George, Charlie, and Joe Kulhanek, and her sisters Sophie Wilborn and Edith Kulhanek. She is survived by many nieces and nephews in Texas, Ohio, Michigan, and Oklahoma.
