May 12, 1929 - December 13, 2014
Nell grew up in a large Italian American family surrounded by eight brothers & sisters. She married Bob Adams on July 2, 1951. Nell and Bob raised their family in Rhode Island. She loved camping, playing cards and square dancing with her lifelong group of friends: Al & Jeannine, Ray & Murt, Charlie & Norma, Ron & Hope, Doris & Bob, Bea & Art. Two cross country camping trips took her to the western United States visiting New Mexico and California. Two of her favorite camping areas were Burlingame and Fisherman's State Parks in Rhode Island were many happy memories were made. Nell worked various jobs throughout her life and retired from Digital Equipment in Salem, NH. After retirement Nell and Bob moved to Albany, Vermont where they built their home with the help of family and friends. Nell's first love was her family - her children, grandchildren, and especially her great-grandchildren. She enjoyed crocheting afghans for everyone and gave them away to family and friends. Nell had a passion for cooking. She loved cooking pizza, bread, pasta fagioli, and was famous for her anisette cookies and pizza fritte (Italian fried dough). She lived a wonderful, full life enjoying family and friends and was loved by everyone she met. She'll be missed.
