Adele so loved her family as a Mom and Grammy and will be sorely missed by all. She was talented in many areas: teaching little kids, scrapbooking, decorating, cooking, being a great friend and teacher. She taught pre-school for Brooklyn Park for 25 years. Adele loved traveling to the Black Hills and Illinois for family gatherings. In recent years: family outings to Wisconsin Dells, Outer Banks, Fort Meyers, New Orleans, California and Arizona.

Our son recently passed away and of course you never expect to have to deal with this for your children so my wife and I were not only devastated but didn’t know what to do or where to turn next. Evans-Nordby was recommended to us by our Priest and I’m so glad he did. From the moment I talked to Tina on the phone I could tell we were in good hands as she took care of every detail. We met with her the next day and she went through all the aspects of what we were to expect in the coming days, weeks, then months ahead. Every employee we had contact with at Evans-Nordby was kind, compassionate and extremely professional. Thanks Tina and to all at Evans-Nordby for making an unbearable experience at least tolerable.
