1920 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
ROWLEY, Adelaide "Mouse" Storer Passed away peacefully on March 31 at her home in Chestnut Hill. She was 96. She always put her family above all and was devoted to her friends, charitable work and animal welfare. Born in New York City in 1920, she was the daughter of Francis E. Storer, Sr. and Eleanor Hastings. Educated at Miss Hewitt's Classes in New York City, where she was senior class president, she did volunteer work for the Junior League, Red Cross and other charities during WW II, and later was a secretary in the health field. "Never one to sit at home and twiddle my thumbs, volunteering has always offered me a way to build connections through my love for people," she once said. Mrs. Rowley lived in Chicago from 1950 to 1958, and then in the Boston area, where she did volunteer work for numerous charities, including Children's Hospital, Goddard House Assisted Living, the Women's Exchange, the Washington National Cathedral and the Church of the Redeemer, where she served for years on the altar guild. She was also a member of The Country Club in Brookline and the Chilton Club and the Emery Bag in Boston. Mrs. Rowley loved to travel and had homes in Vermont and Florida. She had a peerless sense of humor; the last thing she did before passing was to laugh. Beloved wife of Edward D. Rowley, who worked at the Harvard Business School and preceded her in death, and devoted mother of Maeve Magee; Edward D. Rowley, Jr. (Tina Pope), and Storer H. Rowley (Carolyn Lesh); grandmother Renana and Dylan Magee, Mary and Elizabeth Rowley and Catharine Rowley, and great-grandmother of three. Visitation will be held this Thursday from 4-6 p.m. at the Boston Harborside Home, 580 Commercial St, BOSTON. A memorial service will be held Friday at 1 p.m. at the Church of the Redeemer, 379 Hammond St., Chestnut Hill, 02467, followed by a reception at The Country Club in Brookline. A private family burial service will be held Friday at Mt. Auburn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Buddy Dog Humane Society, Inc.,151 Post Rd.,Sudbury, MA 01776.
