On Sunday evening, April 26, 2020, at sunset, Adrienne Elizabeth Beale passed away peacefully at her parent’s home surrounded by her loving family. She was 30 years old, a special angel on earth, knowing only love and happiness while blessing everyone in her life with joy and inspiration.
Adrie was born December 15, 1989, in Reading, Pennsylvania. She was the youngest child with two older brothers who always deeply loved and cared for her. She lived with her parents until a few years ago when she moved into a nearby group home owned and managed by Guthrie Mainstream. Here, she lived an independent life. During the day, she attended a program at the Marc Community Resources, Freestone Campus. She loved her housemates and many devoted care providers from both home and day program who so lovingly cared for her and became her extended family.
Adrie loved listening to music, singing, and whistling; she loved laughter and laughing, deep belly laughs being her favorite. She loved being surrounded by her favorite toys, especially Karaoke Kid (aka Mr. Jones). She loved social interaction with her special friends and more than anyone with her Mom. Although she never spoke a word or took steps independently, her infectious smile and captivating gaze always pulled you into her world. Her expressive eyebrows and generous hugs always delivered special rewards to all who listened. She lived life a brave girl; a giving girl; a sweet angel determined to spread her love and goodness to everyone and remind us of what is most important in this life.
She is survived by her mother Teresa Spady Beale, father Richard Gale Beale, brothers Derrick Brian Beale and Lane Grayson Beale, paternal grandmother Edith Lane Beale, and maternal grandfather Bruce Reginald Spady.
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother Eleanor Gray Spady and her paternal grandfather Carl Malvern Beale, Jr.
A celebration of Adrie’s life will take place in the near future at her parent’s home in Mesa, Arizona.
