Adrienne Elizabeth Glisky was born on January 29, 1937 in Appleton, MN, the daughter of Francis J. and Elizabeth M. (Galerneau) Glisky. She received her education in Monroe, MI, graduating from St. Mary’s Academy High School in 1955. Adrienne attended nursing school at Macomb County Community College in Warren, MI, where she received her degree as a Registered Nurse in 1971. She worked in the Detroit area, and after saving up enough money, purchased the Tioga property near Willard in the mid-1960s. In 1977, Adrienne built a house on the property and made that her permanent home. She worked at Neillsville Memorial Hospital, in Neillsville, WI, as the Director of the emergency room and operating room, and then went to work at the Clark County Health Care Center, in Owen, WI, until her retirement.
She was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church.
Adrienne had many interests, but especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, gardening, travelling, working on her old buildings, and, as she would put it, being the "Mayor of Tioga".
She will be dearly missed by her children: Brian McCombie of Marshfield, WI, Laura Walter of New Richmond, WI, Jeanine Schreiner of Hartland, WI; four grandchildren: Holly Stierle, Matthew Schreiner, Brenda (Anthony) Davis, Gregory (Charlotte) Walter; her sister: Maryann Ashman of Shelby, MI; one brother: Daniel Glisky of Shelby, MI; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Adrienne was preceded in death by her parents; her son: James McCombie; and her sister: Joan Glisky.
