Dorothy “Dottie” Browning Adams Obituary
Dorothy "Dottie" Browning Adams, 64, of Marietta, passed away of cancer on Tuesday, Dec. 27, after a stunning nine-year testament to strength, courage, determination and grace.

Dottie was born Aug. 5, 1952, the daughter of the late Howard Marion Browning and Ethel Lumsden Browning. She spent her childhood in North Carolina. She married Keith Adams in 1971. They moved to Fitzgerald and she began her career supporting individuals with disabilities and their families.

When Dottie and Keith divorced, Dottie and their two boys, Chris and Casey, moved to Athens, where as a single mom, she earned a master's degree in education at the University of Georgia. She raised her boys and golden retrievers in Athens, working at Advantage Behavioral Health Systems for 25 years. In 2002, she took a position on the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities. Although she officially retired in 2012, she continued working with the Council making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities, literally up to a few days before her death.

Dottie is survived by her son, Chris Adams; his wife, Melissa, and girls, Gracen and Anna; son, Casey; his wife, Eva; and children, Skyler and Thomas; and a Godson, Eason Hopkins.

A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2017, at Westview Cemetery in Lula.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hall County in Dottie's name.
