    Evelyn was always a gracious hostess when we visited from Kansas City and the family always looked forward to our visits on the creek. My sister Vickie, rest her soul, always said that Evelyn was the one who taught her how to cook. Although we haven’t been back for many years, we will all miss her.

    We remember her as a generous welcoming woman. Her kitchen table was never to small for visiting family and friends even though she was raising a large family. A true caregiver. Rest In Peace Aunt Evelyn.

    Mrs. Adams was one of the most kindest and loving lady that I knew. Jimmy always loved it when Christmas came around because he knew Mrs. Adams made the candy for him that he loved. To all of her family I will say a prayer for you and I’m so sorry for your loss.

    My first memoriy of Mrs Evelyn is when she sold Avon. She would come to the house & I would visit with Beth while she & Mama visited. I didn’t know Grace was her first name but it definitely fits her. She was a co worker & good friend to my Mama. Always present with a smile & a kind word she was a pillar to the community. A shining light & example of what a great Mother, neighbor & friend can be. The epitome of a true southern lady. I am blessed to have known her.

    Losing someone special
    Is a terrible thing to bear.
    It’s the kind of shock for which
    We simply never can prepare.
    One moment we are smiling
    And the next is filled with tears,
    And losing one we love does not
    Get easier with years.
    But please remember you have friends
    To help and ease your way
    Who share your loss and care for you
    Far more than words can say.

    I never got to meet Ms.Adams but her daughter Gwen really loved her mom. I met Gwen when I was doing my family tree. her grand pa and mine was brothers
