Lorna, our beloved mother, was born March 13, 1915, at Virgie, Kentucky, and passed away February 7, 1990. She was the daughter of Elder Cline and Cora Anderson Tackett, who preceded her in death.

Mom was married to Henry Adams, unto this union was born one daughter, Lora Sue, both preceded her in death. Mom often talked about Henry and their baby of how she was longing to see them. She was very lonely after Henry passed away. When Mom was able, she would go back to the mountains that she loved so dear to visit Henry's grave.

She leaves to morn, two daughters from a previous marriage. Cora Ellen Adkins of McArthur, Ohio, and Glenda Fay Hall of Lincoln Park, Michigan. Also left to morn, seven grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, And one sister, Lesta Tackett of Virgie, Kentucky, and one brother Comas Tackett, who preceded her in death.

Oh how we miss her! A lovely flower has been taken from our home to bloom in the master's bouquet. A precious mother who prayed for her children and family.

Mom became ill in January. She said the pain in her foot was almost unbearable. While in the hospital, Mom's roommate had told us how she prayed all night for the Lord to come and take her home. Later Mom told us that a hand went down over her body and how wonderful she felt, "The touch of the Master's hand". She never mentioned of any more pain. Mom's heart stopped Tuesday morning. The doctors worked with her and brought her back to life. She was then placed in intensive care. Standing by her bedside we kissed her and told her how much we dearly loved her. She smiled her beautiful smile and sweetly said, "I know you love me. I've always known it." Oh how precious it is to have this beautiful memory of her last day on this earth. Mom left behind wonderful memories of how she loved everyone so dear. Both of us girls made peace with God long ago. We would never call her back to a world of pain and sorrow, in which she had traveled in so many years.

Mom loved the church and its people. Years ago mom and Henry worked hard helping the Little Ida Church in Ecorse, Michigan. Mom had a loving and forgiving heart. The Lord walked with her. She raised up her hands and joyfully praised the God. She loved to write and hear about Jesus. When the hospital called our hearts were broken for we knew the end had arrived. Mom had a massive heart attack at 12:13 A.M. February 7, 1990 and as we gathered around her bedside we felt the witness that God had come and called her home to her heavenly reward. There was a peace there that only God could give.

By her daughters, Cora Ellen Adkins and Glenda Fay Hall
