Stella Lorene Adams (Jackson), widow of Connie Aubrey Adams, passed away on Friday, May 9, at the age of 95 in Concord, Calif. She was born in Datto, Ark. on July 2, 1918, and raised in Corning. She moved to Taft, Calif. with her husband and two oldest children in 1946. She was a member of the Taft Church of Christ from 1954 to 1980, at which time she and Connie moved to Bakersfield, Calif. She and her husband were married for 44 years before he passed away in 1985.

She is survived by her four children, Audrey Perry (Adams), Jerry Adams, Linda Beach (Adams) and Debbie Hansen (Adams); eight grandchildren and eleven great-children.

She loved to tell stories about her life on the farm in Corning, with her parents, four brothers and sister. She was highly artistic, creative and resourceful and at her best when surrounded by her family. She was a loving, caring and generous mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will be greatly missed. Her example of Godliness and faithfulness leaves a rich legacy for her children and grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to a Hospice.
