Loving, friend, family, connector, sparkle, shine, inspiration, dancer…these are all words used to describe Adrienne Elizabeth Hussey.  Adrienne had a love for people and life and touched all those who were lucky enough to know her.  Her love of people inspired her to pursue an education in Social Work at the University of Texas.  She received her Bachelors and Masters of Science in Social Work and worked for The Ann Richards School Foundation in Austin, Texas as the manager of special projects.  She worked closely with the executive director in supporting programs for the Ann Richards School for at-risk girls, helped with fundraising, developed endowment campaigns and managed trust accounts.

She had also been a case manager for South West Key Program in Austin and a program manager for The Austin Academy. Adrienne was a Big Sister Mentor since 2005, a representative for the School of Social Work at the University of Austin Student Government Board and an All Ireland champion Irish dancer.

With a love for everything Irish, she represented Texas at the 2010 International Rose of Tralee Festival and immediately fell in love with Ireland and its people, which proved to be the catalyst for her eventual move to Dublin in 2011.

Personally, Adrienne dedicated herself to her family, friends, and massive support system, and she thrived while in their company. Adrienne sparkled when people she cared about were able to come together, socialize, and connect.

Adrienne passed away on January 19, 2012 at the young age of 26, as a result of a ruptured brain aneurysm.  When Adrienne passed away, her friends and family mourned together and experienced the support she had created.

Adrienne was extremely proud of her education and always wanted to help others who entered her life in any way that she could. Adrienne touched lives in many different ways…to try and count how many people she has inspired would be impossible. All of Adrienne’s family and friends were only too aware of this hope to inspire others in life.  Because of this, our team is committed to honouring Adrienne’s hope to inspire and we will continue her trend in her memory to support cranial aneurysm research through the establishment of the University of Limerick Adrienne Hussey Scholarship.
