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.
