Adeline M. Jentges, age 70, of West Jefferson Street, Port Washington died peacefully Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at the Lawlis Family Hospice in Mequon.
She was born on May 27, 1943, daughter of Michael and Adeline Roeser Gutowski in Port Washington. Adeline grew up on East Dodge Street, graduating from Port Washington High School. On May 30, 1964, she married Sylvester A. Jentges of Port Washington at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Port Washington. He preceded her in death on March 3, 2009.
Over the years, she and her husband raised their family on Jefferson Street. She worked many years at Sprague Electric in Grafton, Molded Dimensions in Port Washington and Leeson Electric in Grafton. Most recently she worked in the deli at Saukville’s Pick’n Save grocery store.
Adeline was very active with her church. She had been a Eucharistic Minister, St. Vincent DePaul committee member and outreach volunteer, Meals on Wheels volunteer and member of St. Mary’s Christian Women and funeral fellowship volunteer. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren and was a devoted wife to her ailing husband. She treasured the annual family vacations to Michigan�s Upper Peninsula, especially Mackinac Island and Sault Ste. Marie to watch the boats. She was a “crafty” lady, creating a variety of projects, especially crocheting. She also enjoyed the quietness of her home, just watching the birds.
