     Adeline was born in Danville Township on October 10th, 1923. Adeline is the daughter of Joseph and Mary (Dylla) Mosser. She lost her mom at the age of six. She was the middle child of nine siblings where she learned from an early age the chores and responsibilities of keeping a household running smoothly and started working in her early teenage years to help support her family. Adeline fell in love with the neighbor boy and soon married her “Bud” (Donald Schreiber) on September 19th, 1943.
