Jeanette Adams, 77 years, of Akron, passed away December 17, 2013 surrounded by her loving family after a four year battle with cancer. A wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and big sister. Jeanette was a loving cook, caregiver and homemaker for her family. She loved having her family around and was the type of mom and grandma that never sat down during family meals, making certain everyone else was cared for. She also enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren over the past 29 years. She helped them with their homework (especially math) and always provided a snack after school before they went home. Born in Lyle, Tennessee and raised in Youngstown, she moved to Akron when she married Donald. As a wife, she loved and supported Don in their many moves around the country throughout his career. (ask Dad).
