BELLVILLE: Grace Rhondina Pedersen Adamescu went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ April 7, 2020 following an extended illness. For the last couple of years Grace could not see or walk very well.  Praise the Lord, mom you are now able to see and walk with your Savior and your heavenly family.  Rejoice in the Lord always!

She was born January 21, 1931 in Philadelphia, PA to Sahra (McCaughey) and Aksel Pedersen.  When Grace was just seventeen years old she met her husband John at a dance in Philadelphia.

Grace was an excellent cook and a loving mother.  Her family will miss mom’s delicious beef stroganoff and her famous Christmas cookies.

She worked many years at Therm-O-Disc and at Lexington Court Nursing Home as a dietary aide.  She volunteered at Resurrection Parish serving meals for different occasions.

Grace was a member of Newville Church on Possum Run Road.

Grace is survived by her children Carol (Steve) Rissler of Bellville, Tom Adamescu of Bellville, Marilyn (John) Panayiotou of La Mesa, CA and Dorothy Adamescu of Mansfield; 4 grandchildren Nathan (Sarah) Nickles of Deary, Idaho, James Rissler of Mansfield, Shelly (Robbie) Smith of Bellville, and Nichole (Corey) Glenn of Ashland; nine great grandchildren; five great-great grandchildren; sister Sally (Harry) Bancroft of Landsdale, PA.

She was preceded in death by her husband John and brothers Allan and Richard Pedersen.

A private burial will be held in St. Peter’s Cemetery on German Church Road.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Newville Church or Kindred Hospice.

The Bellville Snyder Funeral Home is serving Grace’s family, and online condolences to her family may be made by visiting:

  • Carol, Tommy, Marilyn,Dorothy, my heart is heavy for all of you at this time. How blessed that Aunt Grace lived a long and faithful life! I remember how much fun she was when I spent the night, in my youth. She would tell us wonderfully woven tales before we went to bed.
    May you all find comfort through loving memories.

    • Thank you for you beautiful comment.As per our phone conversation earlier she is having fun with her Lord and her heavenly family.

  • We are so very sorry to hear about your loss. Your mother was always so sweet and had a smile on her face every time we saw her. May you find comfort in memories of her. Hold onto those as you celebrate her life. Prayers to all of you through this difficult time.

    • Thank you for your beautiful comment. She was in a nursing home for 7 months. I worried all the time and prayed all the time. At times she was so afraid and I could not help her so now the piece I feel that she is with Jesus and her heavenly family is so joyous I just praise Him for that. Thank you!
