My condolences to the family...Adda was my mentor, my friend,...beautiful woman inside and out. She was my principal at St. Francis in Lancaster and when the school closed she became the principal at St Cecelia in Oak Cliff and I followed her. We had many laughs together and invariably lost our way in the car. She told me it was because we talked too much. She and Ron graciously opened their beautiful home for my party. I loved her dearly. For the last several years we played Word Chums on the computer. I will miss you my friend. Rest In Peace. Love, Elaine

Adda and I played a lot of bridge these last four years--at least twice a week and sometimes more. I will miss all the teasing and joking she brought to our club.

Rest in Peace, Adda.

Adda was my daughter’s school principal during a very difficult time in our family. We had just moved to Texas and our lives were in chaos. Her care and support of my daughter were so important to her adjustment in a new school and new place. I will always remember her with deep love and appreciation for all her loving support. Rest in peace , dear lady.

What a wonderful Grandmother Adda was on our behalf! With Ron in Heaven, and the two of us in New Jersey (not quite Heaven) , Adda took on the role for us all. And Wow! What a terrific job! Mark and Daniel are so lucky...and so were we! Our prayers are with her now, and with all the many friends and family who are missing her so much.

Adda was a wonderfully funny, sharp woman. I have enjoyed getting to know her the past two years while playing bridge. She brought much joy and laughter to the bridge group. My condolences to your family.

Adda was a lovely woman with such a good soul. I was fortunate to get to know her these last few years as a result of our shared interest in playing bridge. She will be missed by many.
