Visitation with family and friends will from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 2, at OakCrest Funeral Home in Waco.
Ann was born in Beebe, Ark., to Fred and Frances Phillips. She attended Little Rock elementary schools and graduated from Little Rock High School. In 1970, while working as an interior designer in Ft. Worth, she met Capt. C.C. Adams, a USAF officer then stationed at Carswell Air Force Base. They were married in November 1971. Future USAF assignments took the family to Rapid City, S.D., Fairbanks, Alaska, Sacramento, Calif., and Omaha, Neb. Ann stayed active in interior design, but was first and foremost a loving wife, mother, grandmother and Christian Witness.
Ann's legacy is her intense love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She never knew a stranger. Her greatest joy was to meet someone for the first time and share the good news of Jesus Christ. She led countless numbers of individuals to the Lord. She studied God's Word daily and was a relentless Prayer Warrior praying daily for her family, her friends and the Lost. Ann's favorite scripture was Psalm 91.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and a sister, Mary Frances Barnes.
She is survived by her husband of 36 years, Col. C.C. Adams (USAF, Retired), of Waco; son, Michael Adams and wife, Jammie, of Albuquerque, N.M.; four grandchildren; step-daughters, Kim LaFargue and husband, Terry, and Carey Adams, all of Dallas; step-son, Brett Adams, of Mission Viejo, Calif.; brother, Col. John Phillips (USAF, Retired) and wife, Elizabeth, of Little Rock, Ark.; three nieces; and two nephews.
