Mrs. Eunice Hines Adams, 85, had her transition Saturday, December 17, 2011, at her residence.
Mrs. Eunice Pearl Hines, daughter of the late Genie Hadley and Reverend Matthew Hines, was born June 3, 1926 in Whigham, Georgia. She was the youngest girl of twelve siblings.
"Peepsie," as she affectionately called, leaves her eternal and precious memories to her sons, E. Bruce Adams and Brent E. Adams; grandson, Amari A. Adams; all of Savannah, Georgia; granddaughter, Senetra Frazier; great grandson, Alexander Moody; greatgranddaughter, Siehera Moody; all of Horn Lake. Mississippi; sisters, Florence Johnson of Seattle, Washington and Jesse Andrews of Fresno, California; brothers, Roy Hines of Fresno, California and Raymond Hines of Dayton, Ohio; and aunt, Mary Guyton of Bainbridge, Georgia.
Growing up in a home with her father as a minister, Peepsie's Christian foundation was forged at an early age. At the age of two after the death of her mother, she went to live in Bainbridge, Georgia with her oldest sister and her husband, Norvie and Eugene Guyton, who became her parents.
She graduated as Valedictorian of Hutto high School and graduated from Spelman College, Atlanta, Georgia in 1947 with a degree in Home Economics. While at Spelman, she met and married John Wesley Adams of Morehouse College. She did further studies on her master's degree from the University of Georgia, Wayne State University and Albany State College. She was Interim Director of South Georgia Title 20 Program for Youth for many years. She was also a member of the Pride of Bainbridge Chapter 479 Order of the Eastern Star.
Eunice loved children. She mentored many young people and assisted, as well as enabled, many to attend various colleges and universities. She personally paid for many young women to matriculate at Spelman College. With her love for children, Peepsie later became Director of the Nelson Chapel Day Care Center, where she touched the lives of young people in Decatur County.
After the death of her husband John, she later married Mr. George McBride, who also preceded her in death. A devoted mother, grandmother, aunt and humanitarian, Peepsie will long be remembered for her keen sense of humor and telling many stories and antidotes. She could tell a joke that would have you bent in laughter.
A God-fearing virtuous woman, Peepsie fought a good fight, kept faith and entered her master's kingdom on Saturday, December 17, 2011 at home with her loving grandson by her side.
Funeral services were held on Thursday, December 22, 2011 in Bainbridge, Georgia, at the Nelson Chapel A.M.E. Church, the Reverend James Platt, pastor, presiding and The Reverend Dr. George P. Lee, III, eulogist.
