Feb 1,1928 - Oct 27,2018

Eda Adreveno passed away peace­fully Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27 on a beau­ti­ful sunny morn­ing with her loved ones at her side. Daugh­ter of Joseph and Del­fina Mi­callef, Eda was born Fe­bru­ary 1, 1928, raised in San Fran­cisco, and was a res­i­dent of Half Moon Bay for more than 60 years where she lived with her lov­ing hus­band, Al Adreveno, on their flower farm. Eda and Al had a daugh­ter Eda (John) Muller, who, with her hus­band, also live on the farm and worked along side Eda and Al. Non­nie, as she was called, had two grand­daugh­ters Heidi (Aldo) Bianchi and Trudy Muller. She was loved and cher­ished by her two great grand­chil­dren who were very close to her, Del­fina and Lorenzo Bianchi. She also leaves be­hind many lov­ing nieces and neph­ews. The fam­ily would also like to thank Eda’s ded­i­cated care­givers Eric Mai­wat and Carl Ben­nett for their lov­ing care of her.

Eda lived a full life, hav­ing worked in a flower shop as a florist in her teen years, where she met the great love of her life, Al. Their mar­riage was one of the great love story part­ner­ships, hav­ing just cel­e­brated their 71st wed­ding an­niver­sary ear­lier this month. In the mid 50s they moved as a fam­ily to Half Moon Bay and started Day­light Nurs­ery, a fresh flower farm, which con­tin­ues to­day run by Eda and John as Day­light Farms Pro­duce and Farmer John’s Pump­kin Farm.

Through­out her life Eda was in­volved in the com­mu­nity as an ac­tive mem­ber of the Our Lady of the Pil­lar Par­ish YLI group, as a CCD teacher, ar­rang­ing flow­ers ev­ery week for the church al­tar pieces, sup­port­ing her hus­band Al through four terms as Mayor of Half Moon Bay, many years on the Coast­side Water Board and many other agri­cul­tural and civic in­volve­ments.

Eda and Al loved to travel, had dear life-long friends they trav­eled the world with and cel­e­brated the big and small mo­ments of life. Eda (and Al) would make friends with peo­ple on all of their trips, their open­ness and kind­ness ev­i­dent to all who met them, whether it was Italy, Malta, a cruise or their beloved trips to the Big Is­land of Hawaii. In Hawaii and all over Cal­i­for­nia, Eda could be seen golf­ing with Al or with her golf friends. She could al­ways be counted on to drive it up the mid­dle and sink her putts.

Flow­ers can be sent to Miller Du­tra Coast­side Fu­neral, or a do­na­tion can be made to the John and Eda Muller En­dow­ment Fund at the Cal­i­for­nia Agri­cul­tural Lead­er­ship Foun­da­tion, PO Box 479, Sali­nas Cal­i­for­nia 93902 in lieu of flow­ers. A rosary will be held Sun­day, Novem­ber 4 at 6pm at Miller Du­tra Coast­side Fu­neral, and a fu­neral mass at Our Lady of the Pil­lar Catholic Church in Half Moon Bay at 10am on Mon­day, Novem­ber 5. A lunch re­cep­tion will be held at Mezza Luna af­ter­ward for fam­ily and loved ones.
