Dear Chris and Family & Jan and Family, Words cannot express the sadness I feel with the loss of your mom. Adelle will be greatly missed as she greeted me everyday with a smile. She often would come by my office and have fun conversations with me covering many different topics! She loved all of her family and it was my pleasure to have known her.

Adele extended a gracious welcome to my mother Pauline when she was a resident there briefly. They shared many memorable days at mater dolorosa. Since then she always extended a warm welcome to me. She was very appreciative of her loving family. My sincere condolences to you all. I am grateful to have known her in these last years. Sr Betty Ann matuszek

George/Chris... Zwirko family
Sorry to read of Adele's passing. It brought back many memories of McMahon School and of the HPS. She surely was the heart beat of that school for sure. Always with treating the kids kindly.
We were appreciative of the many kindnesses she showed Millie's Mom on Farnum Dr. She had a long and rewarding life and very lucky to have you in her later years. To bad the MD Chruch is not available to complete the cycle ?
May she rest in peace

I stopped to chat on a daily basis with Adele while visiting my mother at Loomis House. She gave me Polish lessons on a daily basis and always brightened my day with her quick wit and caring nature. The Loomis House trips to the Big E were an annual event and Adele made them memorable every year that I attended with my mother. I will miss her motherly advice and knowledge. Rest in Peace Adele, Dzien Dobry, Pani....

I was privileged to visit with Adele often at LOOMIS HOUSE where I marveled at her sharp memory, her enthusiasm for all the activities , her lack of complaints and especially for her complexion, unwrinkled and more beautiful than women half her age. Regardless of age the final farewells loving families must say to a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother are heartbreaking,. I offer my sympathy to all whom Adele cherished and know there will be great comfort in a million happy memories. Barbara C. Bernard
