My sympathy to Adera's family. She was a long time friend of my mother and her name came up when Mom told happy stories of activities growing up in St George. Adera played the organ beautifully at my wedding and I always enjoyed hearing her and Frank play together and fill the church with wonderful music. May she rest in peace. Sharon Brubacher
Adera was my 1st piano teacher way back in the 1950’s at her girlhood home in St. George. Bill then met her & Frank through our insurance business so we have re-connected many many times over these past almost 70 years & always had a good chat & usually a chuckle or two. She was a great lady …so talented & we are so glad we knew her. Our heartfelt condolences to you, Sharon, and your family. Mary (Jackson) & Bill Derbyshire.
I will always remember the beautiful music Adera made whether it be on the piano or organ, or in a duet with Frank. I learned so much from her during junior choir practice at St. George United Church. As I grew older, every time I attended a church service seeing her at the piano when I walked in made me smile.
Our community was so fortunate to have such talented musician for so many years, she will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers to her family in this difficult time.
I met Adera at Probus She and Frank were leading a Christmas sing a long. To say it was fun would be an understatement. They were fabulous. I was so glad when Adera joined our Probus and agreed to lead a Probus choir. Not only was she a talented musician but we had a ball both at practices and our performances. She was a very unique lady and will be missed by everyone who knew her.
Thinking of her family at this time.
As you go throughout life, you are sometimes asked....who was your favourite teacher? My answer has always been the same.....it was always "Miss Campbell" my Grade 3 teacher at King Edward School many, many years ago. I also knew her and her husband Frank Holton from their hard work and organization of the May Festivals every year. Even in recent years, when I would run into her playing the organ at funeral homes or in the grocery store, she knew me by name and I was always asked the same question "are you still singing and playing the piano?" My deepest condolences to the family on the loss of a wonderful woman. R.I.P. "Miss Campbell".
Yes, Aunt Adera will be sorely missed. Her smile, her sense of humour and the love she so freely shared with all of us will leave a hole in our lives. It is hard to picture my mom without her best friend and sister in her life. Jeff (Sharon's son), Aileen & Mark
Adera will be fondly remembered by the Rook Family.
Throughout my long career at Beckett - Glaves Adera was a fixture. Without so much as a call to ask for her assistance she was always there 30 min before every funeral service to offer her talents to families in their time of need. She would come in the front door asks if there was anything special she needed to know then say "Well I'll head up and let my body catch up with my soul". I am glad to here it finally has and I know she is enjoying a round of golf with Frank. Adera you were talented, joyful and a delight to have known. She will be dearly missed.
