She was an active charter member of Naumburg Mennonite Church and she taught Sunday School and Bible School at both Naumburg and Lowville Mennonite Churches. She made many items for the Naumburg Sewing Circle. Adalene was a fantastic baker and cook…the BBQ queen of the Lehman family. She loved traveling with family, camping, coloring, crocheting, knitting, visiting, reading, and joking with friends.
