Adrienne was born to Wilson and Katherine Thomas on June 15, 1953, in Morgan Park, Illinois.
She attended elementary school at Bates and John D. Shoop. She received her high school diploma from Covert High School in 1995. She loved playing spades (and cheating), dominoes, bid whist, and phase 10. She loved playing video games, especially Pacman. She was never too far from her tablet playing candy crush. Adrienne loved her kids, grandkids, and great grandchildren with her whole heart. She especially loved Jay, her everything. She was introduced to the love of her life, Jay, by her mother Katherine aka Granny. They were joined in union on November 4, 1973.

She moved her family to Michigan in 1993. She loved going to South Haven beach to watch the boats and feed the birds. She loved her ice cream from Sherman's in South Haven and going to the movie theater for her nachos. When she moved to Holland, she became the neighborhoods' granny. She loved taking her grandkids trick or treating, to see the Christmas lights, and to the pool. She was beautiful, funny, loving, and nurturing and a prankster. She will truly be missed by many.
