Obituary for Adele C. Mertens

Adele C. Mertens of Dorseyville passed away peacefully Thursday, April 18, 2019, just shy of her 93rd birthday. She was born Adele Caroline Ulmer on May 5, 1926 to the late William and Adolfina Ulmer. She was born and raised in Pittsburgh, graduating from Etna High School in 1944. She spent the next year serving the Navy as a civilian employee carrying out essential wartime work. At the age of 18 she began seeing her lifelong sweetheart, the late Herman E. Mertens. They were married in 1946 and raised 9 children together; David (Theresa) of Allentown PA, William (the late Linda) of Slippery Rock PA, Mark (Gina) of Hereford PA, Paul (Colleen) of Indiana Twp, Gretchen (Chuck) Fleischer of Bedford PA, Lori (Kevin) Kuchta of O’Hara Twp, Heidi (David) Blankenship of Browns Mills NJ. She was predeceased by daughters Marlene (Bud) Edwards of Lower Burrell and Marian (the late Bob) Lippert of Penn Hills. Adele is also survived by her sisters Margie (Ron) Tiedeman and Wilma (Mike) Johnson. Her greatest loves were her Lord Jesus and her family. Adele was blessed with 18 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren, and 7 great-great grandchildren; all of whom she faithfully prayed for by name daily. She had a gift for words and took pleasure in writing the most beautiful notes to those she loved. Adele will be remembered by everyone who knew her for her kindness and peaceful, gentle spirit.
