Adeline T. Piccinini

Adeline (Addie) was born in Oakland, CA living in the Alameda area for 27 years.  In 1947 she married Florio D. Piccinini and began her journey as a military wife and mother of eight children; her family was her life.

She was an extraordinary wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She always found the good in any situation; filled with life and strength beyond her stature. She was a positive role model, a great cook, loved music, dance, the Chiefs and the Royals.  Above all, she loved the Lord!

It was her strong faith that carried her throughout her lifetime. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her children; Irene Piccinini, Linda Graham, James Piccinini (VitaLee), Darlene Ambriz (Marty), Carol Piccinini, Joseph Piccinini (Samantha),19 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren and generations of friends!

She was preceded in death by her sons, John and Thomas Piccinini, her parents, John and Olivia Vierra and brother August (Auggie) Vierra.

May Adeline rest in peace in all of God’s glory!
