Adeline Anna Bertha Zastrow was born on July 15, 1924, to Lambert and Josephine (Schmidt) Hohnwaldt near Garfield, MN.  She was baptized and confirmed at St John’s Lutheran Church in Garfield. She attended a couple years of German school before attending regular school. She then started domestic work at the age of 14 for Art Wittnebel and Wilmer Schultz. She did this type of work for several years.  Adeline also milked cows for Hertha Timm.  She married Arnold Zastrow at St John’s Lutheran Church on June 29, 1953.  They lived in Garfield for a number of years before building their house on the farm north of Garfield.  They were married for 42 years.

Adeline enjoyed tending to her flower gardens and working in the yard during the summer. She liked sewing, doing stitchery, and putting puzzles together in the winter.  She also hosted the annual traditional schwartsauer soup dinner served with kimmel at her home for her family and friends for many years.

Adeline moved to Brandon Assisted Living in 2015 after suffering her second stroke where she lived until she passed away on November 24, 2020, at the age of 96 years old.

She is survived by her sisters:  Karoline Bartholomew and Lois Adams; her brother: Kermit (Elnora) Hohnwaldt; and many nephews and nieces.  She was preceded in death by her husband: Arnold; her parents: Lambert & Josephine Hohnwaldt; her brothers: Clarence (Betty) Hohnwaldt and Clifford (Loye) Hohnwaldt; and her brothers-in-law: Roy Bartholomew and James Adams.

A Private Family Service will be held on Saturday, November 28, 2020 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Garfield.   This service will be live-streamed and recorded for family and friends to view from Adeline’s obituary page on the Anderson Funeral Home website at 10 AM on Saturday.
