Dear Marcus family: My father, Tony Giorgilli, worked for many years at Chizuk Amuno, and he absolutely adored Adele. I recall him speaking many times of his fondness for both Adele and Danny. I met Adele only a few times while visiting my dad at work, but found her to be so sweet and kind. I wish that my dad was alive to share all the wonderful things he would have to say. Please accept my sincere condolences. May her memory be for a blessing.

I was so sorry to hear about Adel passing away. She was such a sweet lady and was always so welcoming to me.

Dear Marcus family,
For over 60 years our families have celebrated many joyous occasions, but now we have to say goodbye to the last link between the Marcus &
Saval families. First we lost Shirley, then Albert and Danny and now Adele.
With deep sympathy we say but cherish all the great memories.

Rhonda, Debbie, Stuart, and family, my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom. "Mrs. Marcus" knew how to keep me in line in my teenage years. Rhonda and I sure did give her a good run for her money! My mom and she were sorority sisters in Amity Guild; they are now together again and I'm sure wreaking havoc! My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sending hugs and kisses.

Dear Marcus Family,
I was so sorry to learn of Adele’s passing! She was a lovely, sweet and kind woman - we met during the time I worked at KSDS some 30 years ago and I had seen her over the years since that time, always with her same smile. I hope your fond memories will help you through the difficult times ahead.

I was so sad to read this as you all know our parents were very close for decades . Whenever I saw either of them it was always a warm hug and a smile and a great story. I know that someplace in heaven there is an Amity guild show And both of our dads are watching. I hope their memories always bring a warmness this to your heart.

Dear Marcus Family,
I am saddened to see that your loving mother Adele has passed away. She will always be remembered for her wonderful smile and the loving couple she and your dad Danny made. It is so hard to lose a parent but, during Covid it is even harder- those who wish be there to support can’t. May you find peace in your beautiful memories of your very special mother.

I am so sorry for your loss. My Dad Irv Kaplan & My Mother Iris Kaplan
were very fond of both Danny & Adele. My Dad worked with Danny on the Ted Levin

It is so important after the loss of our Parents that we hold on to those times in our lives
and share them with our children and grandchildren.

Dear Marcus Family,
I was so saddened to learn of the passing of precious Adele. Having had the privilege of working in the cubicle next to hers at Chizuk Amuno for over twelve years, I was the beneficiary of her wisdom, forthrightness, dry wit and friendship. Although she will be missed greatly, Adele will be with her beloved Danny again.

I am so sorry to hear that dear sweet Adele has passed away. I worked with Adele many years at Chizuk Amuno Congregation. She always had a smile on her face as she greeted congregants with true professionalism in all aspects of her position in the accounting office. I shall miss our occasional lunches together as we caught up with each other’s family news. May Adele Rest In Peace.

Anne King

Marcus family, Please know that your loss is also Chizuk Amuno's loss. Adele was always such a smiling, friendly ambassador. She was always interested in whatever was going on in the lives of those she ran into at Chizuk. She will be missed.

My condolences to the Marcus family. I’ve known Adele all my life. Adele’s mother, Jean Chait Kaplan, was my first cousin, and Jean’s father, Sam, was my father’s (Aaron Chait)
brother. Every time Adele and I saw each other we gave one another a big hug and felt a special connection. May your memories of her help heal the great loss.

Dear Rhonda, Debbie and Stuart,
I will always remember your mom's sweet smile. and gentle kindness, as well as your dad's happy disposition. While working with Adele at Chizuk, it was wonderful for me knowing there was the touchstone of family just down the hall from my office. My heart goes out to you and your families with hope that your memories and the knowledge that Adele was so well loved can give you strength.

Rhonda, Debbie and Stuart and family,
Your mom was one of the sweetest people we know. She always greeted everyone with a smile and asked about the family. And she was proud of her children and grandchildren. Our parents were blessed to have such a close cousins' group. Know that we are thinking of you during this surreal time and send out love,
