Together Mervin and Adele had eight children; Bill, Mervin, Charles, Howard, Ricky, Toby & John New, and one daughter, Rose Woods, many nieces and nephews and grandchildren.
In the early days, Adele would often take her children fishing in Elgin, Texas then would take their catch to grandma’s to cook and eat.
Adele loved her large family. She enjoyed cooking and gardening.
Adele and Mervin had their own business in the 50’s , collecting garbage and she would drive their truck. Being that there were no dumpsters at that time, the loving couple would collect cardboard boxes, haul them away and later sold them for added income.
