Adrienne Jean Rohn, 93

Adrienne Jean Rohn, 93, died on Thursday, March 7, 2015 at The Laurels. She is preceded in death by her parents: Ruben VanSantford and Ida Jane Hopper, her loving husband Jim, her stepmother Viola Mulrane, and two sisters: Adele Woolsey and Joan Delmerico.

Adrienne grew up in Dumont and Teaneck, New Jersey where she went to high school. She married James Rohn in 1940, and after the war, they partnered in a landscaping business. They moved their business to Washington Township, NJ where they raised their three children. Adrienne and Jim moved to Hauppauge, NY where she worked for the Hills Supermarket chain. In 1983 they semi-retired to Fletcher, NC where they owned and operated the Twin Oaks Mobile Home Park until Jim passed away in 2001. Adrienne also worked for the Victoria DeShea clothing stores in Fletcher and Hendersonville. Always the consummate hostess, Adrienne loved to entertain her friends and family. She will be fondly remembered for her parties and dinners, where for her, entertaining was an art form. She will be remembered for always being cheerful and pleasant. Her glass was more than half full at all times, and she was grateful for her many blessings and her long and happy life.

She is survived by her three children: son Eric Rohn of Fletcher, daughters: Suzanne Muller and her husband Bill of Littleton, CO, and Dianne Gardner and her husband Alan of Oxford, FL. She was delighted to have four grandchildren: Janinne Gardner of Washington DC, David Gardner of San Francisco, CA, Anthony Muller of Littleton, CO, and Anna Muller Hammond and her husband Fletcher of Littleton CO. She also leaves five great children: Elizabeth Muller, Blake Johnson, Carter, Charlotte, and Penelope Hammond.
