Adrienne Richards Henzel, of Ossining, passed away August 15 in Saratoga Springs. Her family
and friends will cherish the memory of her kindness and gentleness. She was the daughter of
the late Capt. Paul Goggin Richards, MD, USN, and the late Amelia Balinski Richards, RN. She
grew up in Ossining and Tarrytown, and graduated from Marymount College, where her future
sister-in-law introduced her to her future husband. They raised four children in Ossining. She
was a voracious reader, loved the water, the mountains, the occasional bet at the track, the
Times crossword, and time with her family.
