ADELINA CRUZ GATEWOOD, age 91, passed away peacefully on January 4, 2019 at her home in Woodmere Village, OH.
“Lina” the eldest of three children of Mary Alves and Antonio Cruz, was born February 26, 1927, in New Bedford, MA.
At a young age Lina married and relocated to Ohio, and there raised three children. Anyone who knew Lina would describe her as a devoted Mother, and avid church goer, a perfect host, and a lively personality. She retained all of those qualities her entire life.
Left to honor her memory are daughters, Maria (Andrew) Tully and Madelaine C. Delgado, from her marriage to the late Tony Delgado. Lina leaves her beloved Grandchildren Aileen (Harold) Bost, Margaret Michele (Michael) Arney, Madelaine (Eric) Theler, and Louis M. Massey; Great-Grandchildren Michael, Jeremy, and Jasmine Bost; Antonia Arney; Freya and Andrew Theler. She will be missed by her sister, Mary Owens, Aunt Benvinda Lobo, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Lina was preceded in death by her second husband Joseph Gatewood; son, Anthony J. Delgado; and brother, Antone Cruz.
Funeral Mass will be 10:00 AM, Friday, January 11, 2019 at Holy Spirit Parish, 4341 E 131st St, Garfield Heights where family will greet friends from 9:00 AM until time of mass. Visitation will be Thursday from 4:00 until 8:00 PM, at the JAKUBS & SON FUNERAL HOME, 936 E. 185th ST., CLEVELAND. Interment will be in All Souls Cemetery.

My condolences to the Gatewood family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. It pains our loving Heavenly Father, too. He did not purpose his human family to grow old and die but purpose us to live and enjoy life in perfect health. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever__1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, will be brought to nothing”; Isaiah 25:8. He promised to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life. He promised to reverse the aging process__ Job 33:24,25 “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.” What a delight it will be to see them again to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16)! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.

I wish you peace and comfort during this time of sorrow. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4) The
Bible gives real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises that
your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a peaceful paradise
on the earth. (John 5:28, 29)
