Adele Gross, age 94, a resident of Bethany Village and formerly of Delray Beach, Florida, passed away Sunday morning. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 49 years, Maxwell Gross, in 1989.

Born in New York, N.Y., on May 13, 1920, Adele was the daughter of the late Isadore and Ella Felber Tauber. She was a passionate and knowledgeable antiques collector and dealer who, along with her husband, founded and owned ‘Merry-Go-Round’ Antiques with locations in both New York and Florida. Her favorite pastime was dancing, and she continued to ballroom dance well past the age of 70. A selfless volunteer, she often volunteered at various DelRay Beach County organizations and would also read to public school students. She will be dearly missed by those who loved her.

She is survived by three daughters, Irene McGuire and husband Kevin of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, Cheryl Vitiello and husband Ray of Tyler Hill, PA; and Wendi Kraushaar and husband Pat of Grand Rapids, Michigan. A sister, Jean Oppenheim, also preceded her in death.

Graveside services will be held on Thursday at 11:00AM in the Riverside Cemetery, 12 Market Street, Saddle Brook, New Jersey, by Rabbi Stanley Skolnik.

Memorial contributions may be made in Adele’s name to Congregation Beth Israel, 615 Court Street, Honesdale, 18431. Arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
