She was a devoted wife to Carmine Lombardi for over 65 years. Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Marie (Solbrig) Vallante.

Adelaide was an avid reader, she loved line dancing, playing cards, Trionimos, coloring and bingo. She sure did love her sweets. She was a kind and gentle person who loved her family. She loved sitting on the deck in the sun with a good romance novel. She enjoyed watching Netflix shows with her daughter whom she spent her last amazing years with. Addie always looked like the “Bell of the Ball” with her stylish clothes and jewelry. Often referred to in her younger years as Truck Driver Addie because she was one very tough and strong woman. She spent her younger years taking care of her children and grandchildren and worked in the jewelry manufacturing industry for many years. She loved going to the Senior Center and socializing with her friends.
