MOUNT DESERT - Elizabeth Adler, born March 29, 1945, died July 14, 2013 after an extended battle with Corticobasal Degeneration. She passed peacefully at her home on Long Pond, where she was the happiest.
The Guest Book is expired.
Elizabeth devoted her life to the loving care of her family. As well, she worked as a nurse's aide and was actively involved in managing the family's clothing shops. In recent years, Elizabeth was especially proud of her work supporting research at Jackson Laboratory and made lasting friendships while there. Elizabeth was a life-long learner, a voracious reader and always enjoyed a good puzzle. Elizabeth filled her home with a vast collection of books and mementos, each with a rich history and story of their own.
Elizabeth is survived by her devoted husband of 40 years, Gary; and her children, Karen Walsh and husband, Joe, Janet Denike and husband, Rob, Brian Adler and wife, Cynthia, and Brent Adler. She was predeceased by a son, David; and her parents, Kenneth and Sylvia White. Elizabeth leaves behind seven grandchildren, Sam Walsh, Megan, Claire and Timothy Moore, and Daisy, Anna and Emma Denike; a brother, Everett, his wife Ann, and their children.
