Adelaide Radcliffe's Funeral Service Livestream

Safe in the arms of Jesus, Adelaide “Lady” Nirelle Radcliffe, 11, went home to be with her Saviour on Wednesday, July 3, In the year of our Lord, 2024. She was born to Matthew and Phyllis (Woods) Racliffe on January 17, 2013. Adelaide Nirelle Radcliffe's name carries profound meanings, with "Adelaide" signifying noble serene and "Nirelle" meaning light of God. The words of apostle Paul 1 Corinthians 9:22, best describe her “I am become all things to all men.” She was just as comfortable helping her brothers in the blacksmith shop, as she was at making bread from sourdough starter she had made. She was very talented in photography, drawing, writing and designing. She had done much research and planning and was working on her own chicken breed. She enjoyed flowers, gardening, farming, and sewing. Adelaide did not like being the center of attention but was always willing to jump in and help when others needed something. Her life was lived loving and serving others, especially her siblings. She would sing, quote scripture, and recite the first part of the Declaration of Independence. She always looked for ways to invest in her family and to make them feel special. Adelaide had a way at showing interest in the things they were interested in, especially with her younger siblings; being like a little, loving, nurturing Momma to them, helping them with lessons and doing projects with them. She loved God and her country. She was faithful to spend time every morning reading God’s word and loving truth. She loved her community and helped with campaigns and planned to run for office when she was old enough. There was a special place in her heart for veterans and she loved doing history and patriotic events. Adelaide was truly growing to be a Proverbs 31 woman.
