Our beautiful mother/grandmother/great-grandmother passed away in January, 2023. She was an incredible scholar, musician, gardener and painter. She had a wonderful mixture of love for family, witty humor, creativity and appreciation of nature. Adele was quick to decide right or wrong, and possessed unwavering strength, grace and intelligence. As a member of the “Greatest Generation”, she lived through the Great Depression and World War II. She obtained her Master of Arts in Social Work in 1949 from the University of Minnesota. We are all better people because of her love.
