Dorothy Jane Adler (nee Barrett), 94, of Island Lake, IL, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Monday, November 6, 2017.

Dorothy will be remembered as a woman full of love and laughter; she gave her gift of joy to all who knew her. Professionally, she was a teacher and formerly a stewardess, but mostly she loved the water, passing on her passion to her six children. Most of all, Dorothy’s strong Catholic faith was her foundation.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, William Adler; infant son, William; and her siblings, Rose Marie, Mary Virginia, and William.
