Obituary of Adrienne Theresa Baumgartner
Please share a memory of Adrienne to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Adrienne T. Baumgartner, age 82, of Milford, beloved wife of James Morris Baumgartner, entered into eternal life on December 9, 2022.
Adrienne was an eccentric, warm and generous woman with a huge heart. The people who knew and loved her would agree that she would do anything for those she cared about. She had a passion for helping others, which she applied during her career as a drug and alcohol counselor. Adrienne continued to educate herself and gain a deep empathy and understanding of those who suffer from addiction through her work as a parole officer. As a certified hypnotist, she used hypnotherapy to assist people overcome a myriad of personal struggles.
Adrienne loved animals (sometimes more than people). Her many dogs she took in and cared for over the years held a very special place in her heart (most notably, Boomer the Rottweiler, Skeezix the Yorkshire Terrier and Rocky the Pitbull Mix). She was an extremely avid reader. She devoured books faster than Amazon could keep up with her. Adrienne also enjoyed spending time connecting with people of all walks of life through social media. She made many friends this way and loved being able to check in with them every day.
Her grandchildren were her world. They were the light of her life; nothing made her happier than hearing from them and being updated on their lives. They made her life complete. She was an exceptional human being and will be so deeply and terribly missed by everyone whose lives she touched.
In addition to her husband, James, Adrienne is survived by her children, Edward Fast, Jr., Adrienne Palmer (William), and Douglas Fast (AnnMarie); grandchildren, Alyssa (Joe) Kondor and Kaitlyn Palmer (Pasquale); a sister, Gladys (Philip) LaMastra; and many cherished cousins, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, August Alfred DiStasi (who immigrated from Italy and established a successful insurance agency) and Ruth Letsch, a homemaker; a sister, Anita Streeter; and a grandson, Christopher Palmer.
Funeral services will be held privately.
