Adeline Clara (Kirschemann) Friez was born October 24, 1939 to Theobold and Martha (Schmierer) Kirschemann on a farm in Hettinger County southwest of Regent, ND. She attended Wagendorf Country School until moving into Regent where she graduated from the eighth grade.
Adeline enjoyed her career as a waitress at the Regent Cafe where she met the love of her life, Leslie Friez. She then worked at the Truck Stop in Lemmon, S.D. before working at the Holiday House in Mott. Adeline and Les were united in marriage on August 24, 1957 and made their home south of Mott for 50 years. They were blessed with two sons, Ricky and Randy. They were fortunate enough to move closer to Mott in 2007 where she enjoyed the riding mower and planting all of her flowers. She still went to drive the combine and help at the farm as long as she could. She was Les’ “right hand man” until the boys were old enough to take over.
