Lura Mae Adams
Lura Mae Adams, age 80 of Pensacola, went to be with the Lord on Sunday morning, March 4, 2012. Mrs. Adams was a native of Paducah, KY. She was the matriarch and co-founder at Pentecostal Church of Jesus Christ.
She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother, three sisters and her husband of 54 years, Reverend B.W. Adams, Jr.
She is survived by four daughters, Sherry White, Dianne Reid (Larry), Carol Moye (Marcus) and Angela Adams; three sons, Ronald Adams (Carol J.), Bill Adams (Pam) and Paul Adams; nine grandchildren; Lynn Monish, Sammy White (Traci), Missy Arnold, Ronnie Glass (Trish), Robbie
Glass (Tammy), Ron Adams (Anna) Daron Adams (Amanda ), Harley Moye (Tiffany) and Stacey Pinell(Blake);16 great-grandchildren, Brittany Flynn (Blaine), Jaime Arnold, Hayden, Jansen, and Amelia White, Ashlyn, Grant, Ellee and Bodie Adams, Grayson and Braydon Moye, Kayla Lacy and Robert Paul Glass, Caleb Glass and Bella Adams; great-great grandson, Blaydin Flynn; brother, Willie Sims; special friend and sister-in-law, Francis Willis; sister-in-law, Shirley Cobb and a brother-in-law, Larry Adams.
Our mother worked very hard beside our dad Rev. B.W. Adams to build The Pentecostal Church of Jesus Christ on Davis Hwy. She cooked many meals then sold them herself to raise money for whatever was needed. Her great love for the church never ended. She truly cared for every member as
Her family. After having a stroke 30 years ago she spent the rest of her life in and out of a wheel chair. Yet she was still a warrior. She never wavered in her faith that one day God would heal her. He has now.
Moma loved to eat in restaurants. But watch out you're going to get invited to church and she's going to tell you she has the best pastor there ever was "her son". Her ability to make each child, grandchild and great-grand child feel they were her favorite was amazing. Her boys just think they're the favored but she loved us all the same. Even her son-in-law and two daughters-in-law felt like they were one of the kids.
We can't leave Kiwi out. She'd rather feed her bird than eat herself. One thing she loved to tell us was she never let any of her children go to bed hungry and she wouldn't let him go hungry either.
There's Louie that aggravating cat that she had a love hate relationship with. But regardless, she had to make sure he was safe in the house when it was time to go to bed.
Our family would like to give a special thank you to our sister Angela that devoted her life to Moma. The nurses in the hospital kept commenting about how wonderful she was taken care of. Her reward will be great. To our brother, Paul thank you for always being there and lending support for our parents and to Angela. Words are not adequate to express our love.
Thank you Bro. Tommy for escorting her in and out of church. That's devotion.
Moma you said "It won't be long now" and now you're gone, but only for a little while. Heaven is sweeter because you're there.
The family will receive friends at Pentecostal Church of Jesus Christ from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 with funeral services beginning at 7:00 p.m., Friday, March 9, 2012. There will be a graveside service on Saturday, March 10, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. at Bayview Memorial Park Cemetery.
The funeral Cortege will leave Pentecostal Church of Jesus Christ at 9:30 a.m.
