Adeline Gruber Tabor, 100 of Boca Raton, Florida, formerly of Pittsburgh, PA passed away on Friday, June 25, 2021. She was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband, Harry P. Tabor, her brothers, Irving and Stanley Gruber, and her sister, Saundra Grobstein.
Adeline lived life to the fullest. Each and every day was filled with possibilities and opportunities to learn, grow, and enjoy. Her optimism regarding life was overflowing. Adeline belonged to and volunteered for many Jewish organizations, enjoyed golf, bridge, mahjong, and was president of her Garden Club.
One of the last living members of the original 20 couple social group (the AK’s) that began almost 65 years ago on Harry’s 40th birthday. Adeline enjoyed traveling the world with Harry and their close friends. During World War II, she took two buses each way to fabricate ammunition for the war effort.
Adeline was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and loved by many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She is survived by her children, Judy Smizik (Frank) of Pittsburgh and Boca Raton, Florida, and Mark Tabor (Susie Gilbert) of Boca Raton, her grandchildren; Stacey Smizik, Stephen Smizik (Bari), and Gregory Tabor (Eden), and great-grandsons; Jakob and Reid Smizik and Myles Tabor. The family wants to express their appreciation to Lucky Toney and Glenda Riley; caregivers who brought with them love, warmth, smiles, and affection to our mom every day and received the same from mom in return for many years.
