Adele Marie Crognale

September 08, 1940 - March 02, 2024


Adele Marie Crognale, a longtime resident of Beaver Falls Pennsylvania went to be with the Lord on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at 11:44am.  She was 83 years of age.  She passed peacefully at Celebration Villa in Chippewa surrounded by loved ones.  She is survived by her daughter, Lori Martin (Robert), daughter-in-law, Aleene Crognale, granddaughters Megan Crognale (Aron Alber), Jennifer Sproull (Scott) and grandson David Alfred Sproull. She was preceded in death by her husband Alfred Crognale and son Fred Crognale.  Adele was born on September 8, 1940, in Isabella PA, the daughter of Richard Coughenour and Laura Coughenour Stevenson.  It is because of her maiden name that many who were close to her called her “Cokie,” even her husband.  She was known to her many nieces and nephews as “Aunt Cokie.” She was the youngest of four sisters, Pat Beeles, Laura Robison, and Shirley Triance, who have all preceded Adele in death.  Adele was beloved as a kind, caring woman who was always concerned about others and would help however she could.

At the age of 19, she married Alfred, and they soon moved to White Township in Beaver Falls, where they lived until Alfred’s passing in 2022.  For many years, Adele ran a beauty shop in the basement where regular clients would come to have their hair done, have a cup of coffee, and catch up on the latest goings on in and around Beaver Falls.  This allowed her to be at home while Fred and Lori were growing up. Later, her kindness would lead her to become a caregiver for mentally challenged adults, an occupation she held until retirement.

Adele was also known as a wonderful cook.  Her specialty was homemade spaghetti.  She would labor long and hard over the homemade pasta and the sauce.  This was a treat for many special occasions.  She also baked world class pies.  Two rules in the Crognale home were, one, that meals had to be homemade, and two, no leftovers.  She was also a legendary storyteller, and laughter was part of any dinner with Adele.  Her sense of humor was among her most endearing qualities.

Her family is very grateful to the staff of Celebration Villa Chippewa and Gateway Hospice for their loving care.
