After graduating from Glouster High School in 1950, Adrienne married William J.

The Elliottsattended McKendree United Methodist Church where Adrienne occasionally played the organ for Sunday Service with her dear friend Margaret McCormick. She enjoyed sharing that love and gift of music with her children and grandchildren year after year as the family gathered around the piano or organ to sing for one seasonal event or another. The Worthy Matron for the Morgan County Eastern Stars, Adrienne had a circle of close friends that spanned decades and included dinner parties, card club, and anything else that was important to her community and family. Married to Kermit Lewis in 1971, she became stepmother to Kermits five children, whom she loved dearly. Kermit, Adrienne, and her children moved to Springfield Massachusetts,and after a number of years in Mass, Kermit's career moved them to Huntsville, Alabama in 1980. The Lewis home was not a quiet place and played host to family and friends alike. The pool always warm, and the drinks always cold which ensured the spare bedrooms stayed occupied and kitchen alive with tasty treats, and lots of laughter. Easter egg hunts for the grandchildren were a yearly event, and nobody left without indulging in homemade ice cream and if you were you lucky, some homemade fudge. Kermit and Adrienne moved back to McConnelsville, Ohio in 1991. After Kermit's death in 1994, Adrienne reconnected and, married Arther ( Tubby) Jago and retired to Leesburg, Florida where he passed away in 2000. Consistent if nothing else, Adrienne’s life in Florida was also filled with good music, food, friends, and family. She happily made potato salad for those that came to love it over the years, and if you chopped some vegetables to help the chances of getting a bite while it was still warm were pretty high. Her sense of humor and laugh were adored by all and her candid and no-nonsense approach to most things were the hallmarks of a life well lived.Adrienne Craig Jago was preceded in death by husbands William Elliott, Kermit Lewis, Tubby Jago and son, Craig Elliott. She is survived by five children, her 15 grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. Graveside Service on Saturday, August 12, 2017, at 1:00 pm at the McConnelsville Cemetery, McConnelsville, OH.
