Adelaide Maria Josephine DiBrizzi Dooley

Adelaide/Mom/Nonna passed on very peacefully. Saturday was a restless day where she ate only a little watermelon, and was hardly drinking anything. After she finally closed her eyes and fell asleep around 2AM, I went to sleep and Cathy was taking her "turn" on the night shift. Adelaide stopped breathing 3:15AM. It was so gentle and quiet a passing we could hardly believe it.

Thanks for your love and support which buoyed us through this time. It was intense but considering her advanced disease, and the harsh nature of pancreatic cancer, her death came as a blessing, quickly and more peacefully than any of us imagined possible.

Love, Norah +Cathy
