Adela Frances Theresa (nee Mackunas) Hanusey, 97, of Ocean gate died on February 19, 2017 at home surrounded by her loving family. Born in Philadelphia, PA on 5 Dec 1919, she was the daughter of Joseph and Adele Mackunas, and sister to John (d. 1981). She lived in Philadelphia for 75 years before retiring to Ocean Gate, NJ, where she summered since 1948. Adela graduated from Kensington HS and attended the Philadelphia Normal School where she met her beloved husband of 59 years, Richard, who predeceased her in 2003.
