I am so sorry to read about Adele's passing. I worked with Adele many years ago at Jordan Marsh. She was a terrific lady with a wild sense of humor. You always knew when Adele was in the building. I knew her when she was an Operations Manager for JM. She was a class act. She knew when to have a sense of humor and when to be serious. She will be missed and I have nothing but fond memories of her.
