ADAMS, Mary Lou Virginia 85, went home to be with our Heavenly Father June 10, 2021, with family by her side. Relatives and friends of Mary Lou are invited to a memorial service at St. Michael the Archangel in Clearwater, Florida where services will be held for her Thursday, June 17, 2021, at 11 am. Mary Lou was born February 19, 1936 and spent most of her childhood growing up in Brandon, Florida and was a 1956 graduate of H.B. Plant High School. She worked at Tampa General Hospital as an Administrative Secretary for 26 years and then retired and moved to Clearwater, Florida. She loved the sunsets on the beach, traveling, and having frequent garage sales. She also enjoy dancing, listening to music, and being with good friends. During retirement she donated her time with The Leading Ladies at Ruth Eckerd Hall and transporting friends to appointments. MaryLou was a loving and dedicated mother and grandmother. She gave us all love and memories to hold onto and will surely be missed. We know she is an Angel now and will be watching over all of us and we can take great comfort in knowing that we will be seeing you again one day. Mom, we love you and thank you for all your love, friendship and devotion. Your proud sons and grandsons. Mary Lou is survived by her son, Brock C. Adams Sr. of Chapin, SC; son, Fletcher B. Adams and his wife, Marci Adams of Brandon, FL; three grandchildren, Brock Adams Jr., Jared Adams, and Carson Adams; sister, Loraine Rose and her husband, Amil Rose. She was preceded in death by her late husband, Frank B. Adams and daughter-in-law, Sharon Adams.
She was the sweetest person I have ever worked with. Her attitude never wavered, she always Blessed my day just to work with her at Tampa General. I just heard about her passing I would have been at her memorial. Robin Philips told me today. We all worked together I was a Patient Representative. I knew both of her Sons long before they were married and had children. My prayers are with you all.

Dear Fletcher, Brock, and family, The loss of Mary Lou is felt deeply by all who knew and loved her. Her love and support of Patt, Warren, and Linda during difficult times were greatly appreciated. Indeed, Linda often referred to Mary Lou as "My Rock". I have many fond memories of her at family get together's in Florida. Mary Lou knew how to have fun, and she was so full of life, I always thought she was about half of her actual age! Her family meant the world to her, and I know she is watching over you all from Heaven. With Sympathy, Bert

Dear Brock, Fletcher and Family, I am so very sorry about the loss of your Mom and Grandma. I loved her so very much. I got to spend lots of time with her when my parents moved to Florida. I loved all the family dinners and get togethers at the holidays. I especially will always remember her kindness when Bob died. It was such a difficult time for my parents and I and she always listened and comforted all of us. When my Mom got sick she was always willing to help. She helped look after my dad when I wasn't there too. Her kindness and loving heart will live on with her boys. She adored all of you. I love you cousins and will always be here. Love, Bert and Linda

Mary Lou was my loving sister whom I will miss forever. We enjoyed all our activities so much such as art shows, Clearwater Beach, family vacations together at the beach, shopping trips to Orlando and Sarasota, meeting for lunches almost weekly and many years around our pool talking about how lucky we were to live so nearby (Tampa). She loved to entertain at home and those occasions were fun for all there, Just everything was a joy to us. Bless her always.
Loraine (Rainey) and Amil Rose

Thank you for being a such a loving and caring mom. Your guidance and direction helped shape and mold Me into the Man I am. Your nurturing spirit and unconditional love was extra and I will continue to share it with others I meet. You certainly had the gift of hospitality and could always make a stranger feel right at home. The magic of your contagious smile and how you could hear it in your voice was no wonder. Most of all, mom, you were fun to be with and always could make Monday feel like Saturday. We could not have asked for a better mom, and we are thankful you already knew that from us. There is a special place in my heart for you in every Clearwater sunset. Love, Brock

I worked with Mary Lou the entire 26 years she worked at TGH, much of the time in the same office when the administrative offices were in the separate building and Julian Rice was the President. I moved over to the Hospital but Mary Lou and I remained close. She was the sweetest, most respectful lady anyone could have as a co-worker and she would do anything to help. Since she moved to Clearwater I have been in touch very infrequently and I am sorry for that. She was devoted to her two boys. Love you Mary Lou and be happy in Paradise!
