Mrs. Adams was born Oct. 10, 1961, in Dallas. A longtime resident of Amarillo, she attended Palo Duro High School. A devoted daughter, wife, mother and friend, her servant heart, quick wit and joyful outlook on life brought laughs to young and old alike.
When her children were young, the stay-at-home mom ministered to numerous families by caring for their children in her home. Later she served 10 years as the building superintendent at Trinity Baptist Church taking special care of everyone's needs, from senior adults to the little ones in the nursery.
After retiring from the church, she served as a preschool teacher and then director of First Friends Preschool. She was a loving caretaker of several family members throughout her life. Her special gift of humor helped her develop a ministry as a Christian humorous speaker for church and civic groups, and she helped organize and teach Bible studies at religious retreats.
She created many colorful characters and often stated that her goal was to "never miss an opportunity to wear a costume!" Her life's motto was "Laughter through tears is the best emotion."
She was preceded in death by her mother, Delories (Minnow) Knight.
Survivors include her husband, Larry Adams of Amarillo; her daughter, Tiffaney Adams of Millers Falls, Mass.; two sons, Joshua Adams and fiancee Stephanie and Landon Adams, all of Amarillo; her dad, Johnnie Knight of Amarillo; two brothers, Billy Knight and wife Barbara and John McKinney, all of Amarillo; two sisters, Dallas Knight of Ohio and Debbie Jane Meech and husband Terry of Arizona; and two brothers-in-law, Randy Adams and wife Pam and Ken Adams and wife Debbie, all of Amarillo.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Boxwell Brothers Funeral Home.
