(Mrs. Adams was) in every sense of the word a good woman. As mother, wife, and friend she was true and while everyone with whom she had dealings or with which she came into contact were attacted to her, yet those who knew her best loved her most, for they only truly understood the motives that controlled her every act. The greater virtues were shining marks of her life but smaller ones were no less prominent. She was charitable to an eminent degree and whether at the family fireplace or in the social circle no word of bitterness ever fell from her lips, and truly it has been said that this is the perfection of all virtures.
The going out of her life formed a picture beyond the reach of any artist, --a soul sorely tried by the attacks of earthly affairs returning immaculate to the hands of its Maker.
Mrs. Adams was sixty years of age and was the mother of an interestiong family of children, four of whom, teo girls Annie and Kate and two boys Raymond and Eugene, survive her. Her husband preceded her to the grave several years ago. Three sisters, Mrs. Ellen Jenkins and Mrs. B. F. Hill, of this city, and Mrs. Amelia Cecil, of Nashville and one brother Mr. William Ingram, of Tennessee, also survive her.
Funeral services were conducted Thursday morning at St. Augustines Church, after which her remains were interred at St. Augustine's cemetery.
Notwithstanding the bitter cold weather, her funeral was largely attended and deep was the sympathy and sorrow that went out to the remaining members of the family who had been so sorely effected.
