Vera (LeVangie) Adams, age 77, had her life abruptly taken from her on July 15, 2018. Vera was a lifelong Weymouth resident who graduated from Weymouth High School in 1958. She worked at New England Telephone for several years and then Sullivan Insurance in Quincy for many years where she met some lifelong friends. Vera lived a quiet, modest life but didnt let that stop her from enjoying people. She always lit up when she had a chance to see her friends' children, grandchildren, and her cousins. Vera had a beautiful smile that she didnt need much of an excuse to show. She will be remembered for her generosity when it was needed, and her kind demeanor. Vera enjoyed reading, having dinner with friends, and her trips to Cape Cod. She was the loving wife of the late Donald Adams who passed in 1993; cousin of Karen Kneeland of Mashpee and Gina Puntiri of Plymouth; niece of Florence Mulready of Weymouth. Vera is also survived by her special longtime friends, Judie D'Ambrosia-Rose and her husband Bob of PA, Cynthia MacDonald and her husband Rich of S. Weymouth, and their children, Julie Rhodes of Plymouth and Rick MacDonald of Hingham, and Cynthias grandchildren who enjoyed Veras company very much, Katie, Gwen, Drew, and Caroline. Vera was a kind, private women, therefore, her family and close friends will be keeping her services private at Veras request. She would have loved seeing her community come together not only in collected mourning, but more importantly in such beautiful collected support of each other. Her family and friends like to think that Veras final wish would for everyone to be more kind to each other, setting an example for the next generation. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Vera Adams Memorial Fund, c/o Equitable Bank, attn: Lori DiBona, 50 Patriot Parkway, S. Weymouth, MA 02190. The funds will be used in conjunction with Weymouth Public Libraries for a memorial project in Veras name. Veras services are in the care of C. C. Shepherd Funeral Home located in Weymouth. If you would like to leave a message for the family, please go to www.CCShepherd.com.

I am so very sorry. It just broke my heart to hear this news. Although I never knew Vera, even so, her life has now touched mine. I grew up in S. Weymouth and ran, bicycled, walked, and then, when I was old enough, drove the streets of Vera's neighborhood many times over the years. I am profoundly sad that such a thing could happen in my hometown and sincerely sorry for this senseless loss of a life well lived. My heart goes out to Vera's family, friends, and neighbors -- to all those who loved her. I'm so sorry for your pain. May Vera rest easy.

Also, my sincere condolences to all those who live their lives and share in Vera's community. What a horrible tragedy. Weymouth and this neighborhood are a part of the fabric of my life. Please stand together and help each other heal. Sending love to my hometown.

Vera, I remember you so vividly from our time working together. I remember you sharing your lunch with me so often you wanted to claim me as a dependent. I remember your strawberry salad, the way you dressed so fashionably, and you had the best hair! So many memories. Scott and the kids all remember you and share in my heartache. I'm so terribly sad you were taken in such an unspeakable manner. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and always remember you. Rest in the sweetest eternal peace and enjoy being reunited with Donald. With love... Lee McIver and family.
