  5. Adrienne will be deeply missed, she surely left a “loving gracious giving” example to me, of how we should live, as I’ve gotten to know her in these last couple yrs of her life. Heaven gained another Angel. She spoke many times how much she loved her dear husband, shared many stories, it it comforting to know she is with him now. She left a lasting impression on me, so thankful I got the chance to know her.

      I am so very sorry for your loss.

  6. I’m at a loss learning of Adrienne’s passing….
    She was such a great teacher.
    I always enjoyed working with her on the Middle School Panther Pride Memory Book art work and cover…each year….I gave her lots of grief…which she took in stride…

    And all the girls made me smile in art class.

    And the pool games in the basement with Ray….

  7. She was a wonderful, kind person and a dedicated and caring teacher. I have so many fond memories of her. I hope and pray that beautiful memories will provide comfort for her family.
