Charmion (Champ) Annette Adams passed away in her home in Chico on March 14, 2008.

She was born in Oakland California in 1916 to Henry and Della Robinson the second of three children and was raised in Willows, CA. She went on to graduate from Chico State College with a degree in education and became an elementary school teacher where she taught first grade primarily at Citrus School for 27 years. She married Robert (Bob) F. Adams in December 1940 in a ceremony in Willows and settled in Chico. They had been married for 63 years when Bob passed away in 2004. She had three children Bob, Tom and Richard (deceased). She was a member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority and a member of the Bidwell Presbyterian Church.

While her sons were growing up they spent a lot of time at the cabin in Jonesville. She and her sons would load up the trailer, take the jeep and head for the mountains. Bob would come up on weekends and some nights. He taught the boys how to fly fish while she visited other mothers, played cards and rested. Her summer vacations were precious to her.

She is predeceased by her parents Henry and Della and her sister Margaret Claire, brother Louis and son Richard.

She is survived by her son Bob and his wife Sally of Dixon and Tom and his wife Barbara of Rancho Santa Fe, LeVent DeLyon of Boston, wife of her son Richard, nieces Sandra and husband George, Dianne and nephew John and also by grandchildren Rob and wife Carolyn, Marti and husband Phil, Tom and wife Ginny, Michael and wife Gina, Chris and wife Erica and great-grand children Lauren, Hali, Anthony, Alyssa, Hana, Jasper, Michelle and Shane. She will be greatly missed by all of her friends and family.

A memorial service will be held at the Bidwell Presbyterian Church at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday March 22, 2008 followed by a private graveside service. A viewing will be held at Brusie Funeral Home between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Friday March 21, 2008. Published in Chico Enterprise-Record on March 19, 2008.
