Adele was a graduate of Roger Ludlowe High School and attended Sacred Heart University. She had been a manager of Zwirlings Bakery and later a secretary for Columbia Records. Adele was the life of the party. As a young woman she enjoyed dancing at the Ritz Ballroom in Bridgeport and Pinewood Lake Country Club. Later on in life: trips to the Cape; Saratoga races; Captains Cove; Lourdes Shrine; and getting her hair done at Beautyland. She adored praying the rosary and designing perennial gardens. God bless Adele. We love you and we will miss you. You’re forever in our hearts.
