Aubrey Monte Adams Buried Here Saturday
His many friends here were shocked last Friday morning when it was known that Monte Adams was in a serious condition. He was an employee on the State Farm at Sugarland, and had gone on duty as usual at 8 o'clock, Thursday evening, apparently in good health. At 11 he was found in an unconscious condition, supposedly from a paralytic stroke. Next morning several of his near relatives here were getting ready to go down to Sugarland, when word came that he had passed away without ever regaining consciousness. The Davis Cozart ambulance then went and brought back the body for burial.
He was brought to the home of his sister, Mrs. J. D. Hines. Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon in the First Baptist Church at 4 o'clock. Services were conducted by Revs.'s C. E. Bullock, Ross Spraker of Sweeny, assisted by Revs. J. B. Davis, W. B. Hodges and R. V. Holloman of Normangee. Rev. Spraker formerly was chaplain of the penitentiary and was a personal friend of Mr. Adams, who was a guard on the Farm.
The Pallbearers were Jim Pitt Batson, Curtis Reed Batson, J. D. Hines Jr., Dudley Clayton, Lee Ross Batson and Wilburn Simpson. Burial was in the Hopewell Cemetery, in the Adams Family lot.
Aubrey Monte Adams was born December 6, 1885, and died in a Sugarland hospital, June 21, 1940 at 8' oclock a. m., being a litle more than 54 years and six months old. He leaves his wife and one daughter, Mrs. Corinne Smith of College Station, one grandson, three sisters, Mrs. Mrs. A. J. Batson, Mrs. Noah Batson, and Mrs. J. D. Hines; one brother Ross Adams of Normangee. His youngest brother, Dannie Adams passed awasy less than a month previously.
Monte Adams was a friend of ours, as indeed he was a friend of everyone. One of the first acquintances we made when we came to Normangee was Monte Adams, then a young man working in the post office. And during the years that have passed since then Monte Adams has been numbered among our most valued friends. Three years ago, April 19, 1937, he accepted a position with the State Farm Industries as one of the guards on the Farm at Sugarland, and has been living there since then until his death.
