Birth: Mar. 1, 1907
Death: Feb. 6, 2007

Annie "Tink" Adams, also known as Granny Adams of Niceville, Fla., died peacefully at home on Feb. 6, 2007, just 23 days shy of her 100th birthday.

Annie was born on March 1, 1907, in Children's Home Community, Walton County, Fla., and moved to Niceville in 1947 with her belated husband Alfred Lee Adams.

She is preceded in death by her brothers, Charles, John, Brady and Eulice Hurst; and one son, Billy Adams. She is survived by her sister, Eva Bryan of Lake Wales, Fla. She is also survived by three children, Francis Griffin and husband Vern, Estelle Cawthon and the late Harley Cawthon, and Randy Adams and wife Sally. She was the grandmother of Robert Griffin, Stanley Griffin, Vernon Griffin, Dennis Griffin, Anne Taylor, Patti Stefancic, Cathy Filson, Beverly Price, Tina Turner, Andy Adams, Chris Adams, Laurie Abernathy, Holly Butcher, Seth Adams, Wiley Adams and Stephanie Cullinan. She is also survived by Jason Adams who was not only her grandson, but who she raised as her own child from the age of 18 months. Annie enjoyed watching her family expand (five generations) and thoroughly enjoyed visiting with numerous great- and great-great-grandchildren.

The family would like to express a special thank you to Granny's many close friends and family who attended to her on a daily basis including Jerome, Glenda, and Nick Hunt, and Tracy Griswold. We also would like to remember her faithful, four-legged companion, Jude.

A time of visitation will be held on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Whitehurst-Powell Funeral Home.

The funeral will be held at the Niceville Assembly of God Church on Friday, Feb. 9. Additional visitation will be from 10 to 11 a.m. with services being held immediately afterwards presided by Annie's grandson, Stanley Griffin. Burial will follow at Clear Springs Cemetery, just south of Florala, Ala.

Floral tributes will be accepted at the funeral home or Niceville Assembly of God.

Whitehurst-Powell Funeral Home, 436 West James Lee Blvd., Crestview, Fla., is entrusted with arrangements.
