Born in Flushing, NY, she was a daughter of the late Louis & Mollie Gallin Black. Adele lived her life fully with amazing family, friends and neighbors who touched her heart with joy and laughter. She will be remembered for her honesty, integrity, her love of music and all things funny.

Adele is survived by her two sons, Paul Kreppel and his partner, Murphy Jane Cross of NY & LA and Neil Kreppel and his wife Laureen of West Hills, CA, four grandchildren, Will, Molly, Kevin and Kelsey Kreppel. Dozens of nieces and nephews also survive.
