While the world was celebrating the end of World War I on November 11, 1918, Louise and Edward Kleinpeter were celebrating the birth of their daughter. Adeline grew up in East Baton Rouge and graduated from Baker High School in 1935. Adeline met Gordon Leigh Bargas Sr. while she was working at Rosenfield's Department Store in downtown Baton Rouge. They were married on March 9, 1940, at St. Joseph's Cathedral. They were married for 54 years until Gordon's death in 1994. Adeline will be remembered for her love for fishing at her camp on Lake Verret and cooking for and feeding her family. Her Christian faith was very important to her and she was an active member of several Catholic parishes throughout her life including St. Isidore, St. Gerard, and St. Pius. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother who will be dearly missed.
