MITCHELLAdrienne Faye Clouse, 87, passed away Tuesday, November 3, 2020, at Hearthstone Health Campus in Bloomington.

Born July 23, 1933, in Salem, she was the daughter of Earl Wilson and Harvey Porter and Wilma (Colglazier) Porter Rhodes.  She married Henry Clouse, Jr. July 26, 1951.

 Adrienne was a 1951 graduate of Mitchell High School and a teaching assistant for 13 years.   She was a devoted wife and mother.  She loved and cherished her time with family, friends, and church.

When there was something to be done, she did her best to get it done.  Over the years, she was a den mother, scout leader, room mother, sports mom, and band parent.  For many years she made crafts, and baked cookies and pies for various church bazaars.  Regardless of the task, she poured herself into it.  She loved to quilt and read.

Adrienne was a member of Tri Kappa, and served on the library board and Mitchell High School Alumni Association board.  She was a member of the First Church of God.
