After George returned from his service in the Army, Adrienne and George were married on May 19, 1956 in Chicago. As George went to work for Consolidated Freightways, Adrienne stayed at home to raise their four children, this was the tougher job.

Adrienne and George moved out to the Elizabeth area in 1997. She was a member of St. Mary’s Church in Elizabeth. She enjoyed craft shows and going to the casino. She was an avid reader, loved to collect recipes, and great Bears fan.
