Beverly Ann Adams

Beverly Ann Adams, 76, of Hartsburg (Lake Champetra), MO, went to heaven on January 5th with her family by her side, after courageously battling a lengthy illness.  A private burial service will be held on Friday January 11th.  There will be a celebration of Beverly’s life at the American Legion Hall, in Ashland, MO, on Saturday January 12th from 1-4pm, with a brief service at 2 pm.  All that knew her are invited to attend.  Bev was born on September 15th, 1936 to the late Warren and Clara (Jarrett) Duncan.  Mom was the foundation that held us all together.  We are so honored that God blessed us with such an incredible wife and mother.  We will certainly miss her unconditional love, laughter and joy she brought to all of us.  We are thankful too for our loving father who has been a great caregiver to her over the last several years as she has battled Alzheimer’s and other health conditions. Bev was preceded in death by her sister, Carol Sandbothe.   Survivors include her loving husband of 55 years, Kenneth W. Adams; her daughter and son-in-law, Ron and Lisa Jones of Hallsville, MO; her son and daughter-in-law Kendall and Pam Adams of Burlington, IA; her son and daughter-in-law Scott and Nicki Adams of Prairie Village, KS; her ten loving grandchildren and two great grandchildren; her sisters Susan Rozier of Jefferson City and Jane Callahan of Williamsburg, VA.  Memorial contributions may be made to Alzheimer’s Association.
