Eda Mary Adreveno
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.
