We are so honored that God blessed us with such an incredible wife and mother. We will certainly miss her unconditional love, laughter and joy she brought to all of us. We are thankful too for our loving father who has been a great caregiver to her over the last several years as she has battled Alzheimer's and other health conditions. Survivors include her loving husband of 55 years, Kenneth W. Adams; her daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and Ron Jones of Hallsville, Mo.; her son and daughter-in-law, Kendall and Pam Adams of Burlington, Iowa; her son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Nicki Adams of Prairie Village, Kan.; her 10 loving grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; her sisters, Susan Rozier of Jefferson City and Jane Callahan of Williamsburg, Va.
