She spent many joyful years as Assistant Director of the Roger Sherman halfway house in New Haven before her retirement. She was a voracious reader, and loved playing the piano, listening to opera, loving her cat, Daisy, and especially loved joining in sing-alongs of old-time favorites from the 40s, 50s and 60s. She is fondly remembered by her family and friends for her quick wit, her knowledge on a wide-range of subjects, and her kindness towards others - especially the friends she made over the last two years while residing at Apple Rehabilitation in Old Saybrook and Chesterfield’s in Chester, CT. Her family extends a special thank-you to the caregivers at these two facilities and for the special care that she received at Middlesex Hospital’s Hospice Unit. Services are private. Contributions may be made in Adrienne’s memory to: Hospice and Palliative Care at Middlesex Hospital, 28 Crescent Street, Middletown, CT 06457.
