Adela C Crosa
October 16, 1919 – February 25, 2018
Adela “Camelia” Vidaillet Crosa, 98, died peacefully on February 25, 2018. During her last few days, she was surrounded by her loving family including her children, Michael Leopoldo (Olga), Peggy Ann (Allen) Crosa Beck, and Peter (Mary), nieces, nephew and grandchildren. She was born in Baracoa, Cuba and came to the United States in 1943. She was very proud to be an American. She always said, “There is no place like the United States!”. She had ten grandchildren, Sylvia, Frances, Robyn, Beth, Michele, Lisa, Patricia, Martha, Emile and Michael and twelve great-grandchildren, Michael Henry, Peter, Alexandra, Julianna, Sam, Matthew, Elena, Sophia, Leo, Mia, Wyatt, Benjamin. Camelia had a great devotion to God and prayed for all her family on a daily basis. God has blessed her and us. Whenever someone would come to visit, she was always happy to see them and when they were ready to leave, she would always say, “Con Dios”, “With God”. And now we say, “Con Dios, Mom, see you at the altar”.
