Adell concluded her career as the Assistant Director of the State of Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board. She retired in 2007.

Adell’s passion was quilting. Her works, which were incredibly beautiful and intricate, will live on as her legacy. She was a member of the Cheyenne Heritage Quilters and the Material Girls.

We all will all miss Adell’s true fighting spirit.
