Adeline D. Gomez
Adeline Deloris was born on May twenty-fifth in the year nineteen fifty-eight in Pierce County Washington to Leo and Virginia Hearlson. She was the second of eight children. She died in November at home in Tacoma, Washington after a long battle with cancer. She is survived by her father Leo, her brothers and sisters, her daughters Candida and Celeste, her grandchildren Conner and Adrea, her life partner Dennis Gustafson and honorary stepsons Mike, Jon, and Steve.
Adeline grew up in Graham, Washington and attended Bethel High School. After graduating she bused to the east coast and then flew to Germany as part of an exchange program. (This event made the local paper). She briefly attended college before marrying Forrest L. Gomez and having their two children.
Adeline taught herself to read at two and started working in libraries at the age of thirteen. She worked at Burlington County Library in New Jersey while her husband served in the Army. When he retired they moved back to Washington State and she worked on the Outreach Bookmobile. After leaving the library she finished her degree online and worked at Puyallup Bookmark and later volunteered at Summit Library. In addition to German she learned Sign Language and Spanish so she could better spread her love of reading. She also enjoyed making apple pies, crafts and doilies. She would give the doilies as gifts and donate them to charity auctions. She would also drive around Washington in order to donate books to libraries in small towns.
She was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Scleroderma, and Glaucoma before being diagnosed with cancer. Despite it all she held on to her love of life, learning, and reading.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date for close family and friends. In lieu of flowers please donate to you local library and literacy programs.
