A memorial  for Adele Sawicki was held at St. Dominic on March 24, 2012.  Adele died at Thomas House in February.

Friends, including neighbors from River Park, St. Dominic parishioners  and fellow volunteers from Arena Stage and Legal Counsel for the Elderly, shared memories of Adele at the reception following the mass.

A long-time resident in Southwest, Adele was a cheerful woman who wore a big smile and was always ready for fun.

Little is known of Adele’s early life and work career.  She was originally from Massachusetts and  worked for the Department of Defense.  She  served in Vietnam during the war. However, Adele’s life as a volunteer is legendary and  perhaps that is the best way to be remembered.
