Bridgewater - Rutgers alumna, university librarian, DAR, Adeline Tallau Brady, 79, passed peacefully on Wednesday, March 27, 2018, at the Arbor Glen retirement center in Bridgewater. Relatives and friends are will be welcomed at the Garefino Funeral Home, 12 N. Franklin Street, Lambertville, NJ, between 6 PM and 8 PM on Friday, March 30th. Graveside services will be held at 11 AM, Saturday, March 31st, at Ms. Brady's family plot at Restland Memorial Park, East Hanover, NJ.

Born in Newark in 1938, Ms. Brady resided in Springfield and attended Dayton Regional High School, graduating in 1956. She then took up studies at the University of Vermont, graduating with a degree in Psychology in 1960.

She then moved to New Brunswick to study library science at Rutgers, collecting a Master's degree in Library Service in 1962. This led to her employment as the first full-time librarian at the newly-established Rutgers Center of Alcohol Studies, and she was instrumental in developing their respected Alcohol History Collection.

Addie ultimately enjoyed a long career in the Rutgers library system, moving to the new Library of Science and Medicine in 1970 as the Head of Reference. Serving on numerous councils and faculty committees in the University, and as the library faculty chair, she also earned her Ph. D in Communications, Information and Library Studies in 1988. She retired as the Behavioral Sciences Resources Librarian in 2002.

Outside the academic world, Addie was an avid gardener and quilter, and was active in the Travelers' Club and the Foothill, Villagers' and Craig community theatres around central Jersey. As a direct descendant of Jacob Clark, she was also a member of the Church and Cannon Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was also an avid Rutgers women's basketball fan.

Addie was predeceased in 2009 by her husband of 33 years, Alfred V. Brady. She is survived by her stepson Kevin Brady, his wife Polly Anderson, and their children Wyatt and Hannah, all of Lambertville; cousins Meg and Jim Weston of Bedford, MA; and cousins Andrew and Barbara Sutton of Long Valley.

The family requests that donations in lieu of flowers be made to the Bound Brook Presbyterian Church, where Addie was a communicant. They may be contacted at 409 Mountain Ave., Bound Brook, NJ 08805, or at (732) 356-3575.
