Mary was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to her proud parents of John and Cleo Peters, then in 1936 they moved to Bakersfield where she grew up, went to local school and graduated from Kern County Union High School in 1952. She met and after a short 17 day engagement married Lester Adams on January 10, 1953. She worked for Bakersfield City Schools in the cafeteria for many years before retiring in 1993. In 2001 they moved from the city to the country where she and Les loved their new home and making home made salsa from their garden. (If anyone has a jar of her salsa please savor it because the recipe is lost.) She is preceded in death by her parents, John and Cleo Peters; her brother, Jack; and loving son, Geary. She is survived by Les Adams of 55 years; 2 brothers, Gene and Ollie Peters, Kenneth and Dorothy Peters; and sister, Cleta and Jack Lang; daughter and husband, Lori and Michael Wilkins; son, Gregg and wife, Frances Adams; daughter, Esther Little; daughter, Kristi Hall; daughter and husband, Kathy and Kenny Devin; seven grandchildren, Johnny and Jennifer Black, Stephanie and Skyler Devin, Brittany and Justin Harer, Christopher Hall, Matthew and Steven Adams, Tracy and Brian Yeomans; and four great-grandchildren, Jacob, Tyler, MacKenna, Emma; numerous nieces and nephews and loving friends. She will be greatly missed.
