Shreveport community volunteer and philanthropist. Ran the Negro Joy Fund in Shreveport for The Shreveport Times and the Shreveport Negro Chamber of Commerce from 1932 to 1972. She and her husband opened their home to hundreds of foster children in Shreveport from the 1940s through the 1960s. One of seven children of Douglas and Elza Hickory Adger, she was actually named "A.B." by her father. Her husband was Henry Palmer, who died in 1955.
She was buried on Nov. 27, 1979. She apparently had a marker affixed the raised sarcophagus she shares with her husband, but it seems to have been stolen.
