ADAMS Myra Jean Adams: A star in heaven above has dimmed its lights with the passing of Myra Jean Adams, age 91 of Jacksonville, FL. She was born on March 6, 1922 in Albany, GA, and died on Sept. 22, 2013 from Alzheimer disease. Her body and mind was destroyed by the disease, but, never her spirit. She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, James Everett Adams. She is survived by her daughter, Penny Adams Landregan of Fernandina Beach, FL, and two sons, Gene Adams of Jacksonville, FL, and Dennis Adams-McDonald of Chiang Mai, Thailand; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren, and many nieces, and nephews. She was a member of Cedar Creek Baptist Church for 70 years, and sang alto in the church choir. Myra will be remembered by thousands of friends, and families for crocheting booties for their newborn babies. There will be a graveside service at Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery of Jacksonville, FL, Friday, September 27, 2013 at 11:00am, with Rev. George Mills of Yukon Baptist Church officiating. Following the service, friends, and family are invited to share in the celebration of her life at Yukon Baptist Church, 4552 120th St., Jacksonville, FL 32244. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Community Hospice of Northeast Florida, 4266 Sunbeam Rd., Jacksonville, FL 32257 in Myra Jean's memory. We thank them for the loving care they provided her in the last 9 months of her life.
