July 25, 1952 – Dec. 17, 2018
Adele Mueller, formerly of New York City and Mattituck, was taken into the bosom of her Lord Dec. 17, 2018, at her home in Southold.
A loving wife, true friend and faithful child of God, she left her deep but gentle mark on many through her abundant, giving heart and dedication to those in need.
She was serious about her friendships and the bonds she forged were strong and lasting. The void left in her passing will be a long time healing but will be tempered by the remembrance of the warmth and grace she displayed in all she did.
To say she was a foodie would be an understatement. After a career in the publishing industry, she studied at the French Culinary Institute, learning the arts of bread baking and pastry, later adding the skills of a chocolatier to her repertoire. Feeding the hungry was always a priority -— from organizing and cooking Thanksgiving dinner at the homeless shelter, to collecting and distributing fresh vegetables to local food programs and pantries, Adele worked tirelessly. She also had a great love of the water and loved exploring the beauty of Peconic Bay. Her family and friends give thanks for the overwhelming flood of prayers and support from those whose lives she touched, as well as countless others.
She is survived by Bob, her husband of 31 years; her sisters, Stacey Winters and Pamela Dorrance; and her nieces Elizabeth Dorrance, Meredith Lederman, Sarah Seaman and Jennifer Dorrance; and her beloved cat, Meg.
A memorial service celebrating her life will be held at Mattituck Presbyterian Church Saturday, Jan. 19, at noon.
