Adelaide Erwin

Thursday, May 8, 2008

A memorial service for Adelaide Erwin, 7, of Hartley, took place Wednesday, May 7, 2008, at the Cornerstone United Reformed Church in Sanborn. Rev. Jacques Roets officiated.

Interment took place at Roseland Cemetery of Sanborn.

Adelaide, the daughter of Tim and Deena (Krehlik) Erwin of Hartley, passed away Sunday, May 4, 2008, at Spencer Hospital.

Adelaide Ranae Erwin was born on May 28, 2000, in Sioux Falls, S.D.

One of the many lessons Addy taught us was that she was no different than any of us, except that her brokenness was more apparent.

Although Addy's life was short, each day with her was a precious gift.

She was preceded in death by twin brothers: John and Peter, who were taken by the Lord before birth.

Addy is survived by her parents; two sisters: Tierney and Camille; and three brothers: Keegan, Elias and Samuel; her grandparents, Darrell Krehlik and Ronda, and Jim Erwin and wife, Mareen Erwin -- all of Spencer; aunts and uncles; and other extended family.

The Hartley Funeral Home in Hartley is in charge of arrangements.
