Obituary for Mary Jane Adams

August 3, 1925 - September 30, 2018
Pahrump, Nevada | Age 93


Mary Jane George Adams (Mamie), our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away Sunday morning, September 30, 2018, in Pahrump, Nevada. Mamie is now free from pain, her memory is restored, and she is reunited with her loving husband Val, her parents, her brother and her grandparents.

Born on August 3, 1925, in San Antonio, Texas, Mamie was a life-long resident of the Alamo City and an active member of St. Mark's Episcopal Church. She was a graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School and attended Incarnate Word College. On October 18, 1946, she married her high school sweetheart, Val Adams, after his return from service in WWII. In 1960, she was employed by the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas, where she worked for 30 years, eventually being secretary to several bishops. She retired in 1990, being honored by the Diocese staff with beautiful tributes and a celebration.

During retirement, Mary Jane and Val enjoyed traveling, visiting their children and grandchildren, and entertaining friends in their home. Mamie spent her last few years living with her daughters in College Station, Texas and Pahrump, Nevada.

Mary Jane loved her family, church, friends and country. She was a strong, beautiful woman who took care of us all. We will miss her smile, sense of humor, crazy sayings, courage and unconditional love. She will forever be in our hearts.

Mary Jane is survived by three children and their spouses: Peggy Adams Cryan and her husband Charles; Val David Adams and his wife Donna; and Susan Adams Kitchen and her husband Lynn. She is also survived by 7 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.

Mary Jane's family will celebrate her life with a Graveside Service on Friday, October 12, 2018, at 2:00 P.M. at Mission Burial Park South in San Antonio followed by the interment of her ashes.

The family expresses its gratitude to Porter Loring Mortuary for taking such wonderful care of our precious Mamie.
