Obituary for Adele Ridges

Adele Ridges, nee Gluting, age 95, a resident of Spring Meadows of Naperville and formerly of Chicago, IL peacefully passed away in Naperville, IL on Monday, May 13, 2019.

Beloved wife of the late Capt. John W. Ridges, Sr. (CPD); loving mother of Kathleen (the late Deacon Thomas) Kreidler, retired Sgt. John (Mary) Ridges, Jr. (CPD), and the late Y.O. Michael Ridges (CCSP). She will be greatly missed by her eight grandchildren and her 21 great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

For the last seven years, Adele made Naperville her home. She lived at Spring Meadows Naperville and made many friends while she lived there. In fact, Adele was loved by everyone. She had a way of drawing people in, being a friend to all with an ever-present sparkle in her eye. She loved spending time with her family and had a true gift for relating to the little ones. At the young age of 80, her daughter, Kathy, introduced her to an art class and Adele not only liked the class she became an accomplished artist.

She and her husband John, loved to travel and share their adventures, photos and souvenirs with family and friends.

While she was busy raising her own children, she became a den mother to a neighborhood cub scout troop. She worked at Sears & Roebuck located at 63rd and Halsted St. during the holiday seasons. She was a long-time supporter/member of St. Rene Senior Citizen’s group on the south side of Chicago, as well as serving as a Eucharistic Minister.
