Obituary


Eve Brokaw Adams

Eve Brokaw Adams, daughter of J. Marvin Brokaw and Erma Hopt Brokaw, died on February 26, 2011 of de-differentiated liposarcoma.
She was born on October 27, 1945 in Lincoln, NE. The Brokaw family moved to Everett, WA in 1953, where Eve graduated from Cascade High School in 1963.
Eve lived in Bangkok, Thailand for three years and taught English at Thammasat University. After returning to the United States in 1969, she lived in Los Angeles, CA for 12 years, where she was a business manager for various people in the Hollywood entertainment industry.
Eve returned to Everett, where she met her husband, John Charles Adams III, to whom she met (28 years) and had been happily married for 27 years. They are devoted members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Their marriage was sealed at the Seattle Temple.
In Everett, Eve worked for five years as Office manager for Deaconess Children's Services.
Eve and John moved to Hawthorne, NV, where they lived for five years. During this time, Eve worked as Real Property Manager for DZB, a contractor for the Hawthorne Army Ammunition Depot. In her spare time, she excelled in American Sign Language and served as an interpreter during court proceedings. She also provided great help and encouragement for John as he worked to get his Master's Degree in education.
After they moved back to Washington, Eve started work at Group Health for the Medical Director of Preventative Care as Administrative Coordinator and was beloved by all. She worked there for 17 1/2 years while she and John built their home in Arlington and started a blueberry farm and orchard. Eve and John spent many happy hours exploring the countryside and mountains.
In addition to working on their farm, she and John pressed their own cider. Eve truly loved animals and has raised dogs and sheep. She was a livestock advisor for WSU. Eve was deeply involved with Granite Falls FFA, for which her husband John Adams was the advisor and Ag. Teacher. Eve enjoyed watching the students grow over the years and was proud of their accomplishments. Eve was a very talented artist, working in water colors and black and white sketches. Her porcelain dolls are truly works of art. Eve also had a passion for genealogical research and writing. She has greatly enjoyed hiking and scuba diving and has done photography for magazines. One of her pleasures was meeting with the Cascade High School Old Girl's Club. It pleased her so much that they met this last December so that she could say goodbye to them.
Most of all, Eve genuinely loved people. She was kind and loving to everyone with whom she came in contact. She had a way of viewing life optimistically, making even the most distressing circumstances positive. Her caring and great good humor made people happy, and being with her was always an adventure.
Eve leaves her beloved husband, John, at home. She also leaves her sisters, Pat Heaven (Ed Taylor), Susannah Henkle (Jack), Clare Fox (Daniel) and Mriana Williams; (brother/sisters-in-law), Mike/ Phyllis Adams, Jerry/Charlene Grgich; her children, Michael Hathaidharm (Niina), John Adams IV (Shona), Katy Schumann, Rebecca Adams (fiance Don Etheridge), Michael Adams (Amy), and acquired son Dan Lott; her grandchildren, Shelby, Brittany, Plankton, Shania, Shayanne, Marcus and Kaylee; and her special canine daughter, Annie Halo.
Eve was pre deceased by her parents; her eldest sister, Brenda Moody; and her canine daughters, Genevieve and Juniper.
Eve leaves special thanks to her sisters, Mriana and Susannah, for help, support and encouragement during her illness. The family is most grateful to the women of the Arlington Second Ward Relief Society for their generosity and thoughtfulness in this difficult time. Also, the lovely and loving people from Providence Hospice and Home and About have wrapped the entire family with their love and caring. Eve's Group Health family was also extremely important to her. Their loving vigilance and support on her behalf showed without exception how special they all are. Thanks are simply not enough for all these people.
At Eve's request no service will be held.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Deaconess Children's Services, Group Health Foundation and Providence Hospice.
