Adelled Moved in With Her Daughter Betty In Old Age


Margaret digresses from the main story to tell of the time when Adelle, in her old age, had to move in with her daughter Betty.Adelleļ¾ had only a small pension form Wheaton College, and when her sight began to fail it was clear that she could not continue on her own. She delayed moving in with Betty and accepting financial support from Margaret, so Kenneth had to intervene and persuade her.
