Adeline Crookedneck was born to James and Veronica Crookedneck on May 27, 1950 in Lloydminster. Adeline dedicated her life to children as an educator. She started her teaching career in 1971 and taught until she retired in 2015. Adeline lived a traditional life, and often was the one to take her parents to sun dances. She enjoyed the outdoors, planting gardens, and loved to go berry picking. Her grandchildren were her life. She passed on her wisdom to them teaching them our culture. Adeline made sure her kids were not hurting in anyway and spoiled them, and her dog, Randy Thomas, immensely. Adeline also loved to go to garage sales and Casino Dene.
Adeline leaves in spirit a legacy of respect, cultural traditions, and kinship through: her only daughter, Rita Crookedneck; her grandsons, Stefan Joseph, and Tristen Thunderchild; her granddaughters, Chelsea (Nelly) Joseph, and Shanae (bebesis) Joseph; her adopted son, Luke Oseemeemow; her special nephew, Winston Pahtayken; her brother, Ernest Crookedneck; her sisters, Dorothy, Bernice and Delphine Crookedneck, and Mary Paul; and Roland Crookedneck and Stewart Joseph.
Adeline was predeceased by: her husband, Enos Northwest (2013); her father, James Crookedneck (1982); her mother, Veronica Crookedneck (1999); her brothers, Donald Crookedneck (1952), and an infant; her niece, Olivia Crookedneck (2014); and her sister-in-law, Loretta Crookedneck (2018).
