Adele Perdue (Nee Zanon)

It with great sadness we announce the passing of Adele Perdue.

Born in Natel/Michele, Adele was the oldest child of Joseph and Lina Zanon. Adele spent her childhood in the communities of Natel/Michele before moving to Nelson. Adele often spoke fondly of her time working on the family farm with her two younger brothers Robert and Io.

Adele was musical, creative and spoke multiple languages. Before marriage she travelled throughout Europe. On returning from her travels Adele married her high school sweetheart John, the two celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on June 7, 2014. Adele was a doting mother to her children Mark, Sandra and Chris.

Before starting her family Adele worked as a Teller at the CIBC. While raising her family she was well known and loved for her work as a hostess at Momma Rosa’s restaurant.

Family was most important to Adele who was a devoted wife, sister, mother, grandmother. She will be greatly missed and fondly remembered. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Canadian Diabetic Association.
