Adelaide was born September 11, 1910, in rural Johnson County, Iowa the daughter of Wesley and Clara (Tomash) Sedlacek. She married Wesley Clarence Jiras September 30, 1931, in Johnson County. They farmed and raised their family on a farm northeast of Oxford. Wesley died in 1953; Adelaide continued to live on the farm for a while, later moving into Oxford. Here she was involved with working at the Oxford Sale Barn, Oxford Schools, and the George L. Gay Funeral Home Oxford's Chapel.

She was a member of the St. Mary's Catholic Church in Oxford, and the Altar and Rosary Society of the Church. Adelaide loved her family, cooking and baking for family and friends, and dancing until she dropped in many of the dance ballrooms of this area.


Memorial donations can be made in her memory to the St. Mary's Catholic Church Building Fund or to the Oxford Lions Club Park.
