Pauline J. Adams, 86 years young and a long standing resident of Cocoa, passed away on February 18, 2012. Pauline was born in Knoxville, Tennessee on November 24, 1925 to Carl and Edna Bell. Survived by her husband of 62 years, Bill Adams; daughter Linda Adams (Fremont) Bassett; grandchildren John and Greg Bassett and great-grandchildren Caleb and Brooklyn Bassett. Pauline leaves behind a large family of nieces, nephews and in-laws. Polly, as she was called, grew up with her 4 siblings in a simple country way with a lot of love and joy in her life as a young woman. She married Bill Adams and moved to Cocoa, Florida. Pauline was a cheerful hardworking person that opened a friendly heart to fellow employees and customers alike. She enjoyed several jobs including Scotties hardware, Woolworth's and Cass-Walker Groceries Store. She was a short order cook, a lunch counter manager, sales clerk, a sales checkout employee and also a customer resource lady in the paint department. Pauline was an avid Atlanta Braves fan and would watch the games anytime they were on tv - she would stay up into the early hours just to watch the Braves play and introduced her grandsons John and Greg to Braves baseball. She enjoyed Sunday car rides, cooking and spending time with her family and friends. She was a Southern Baptist and attended church at First Baptist Church, King Street Baptist Church. Pauline was a proficient sales clerk for the companies that she worked for, a very gifted country cook and a loving wife and great mother to her family. She was a faithful follower of Christ and read her bible daily all throughout her life and found comfort in the work of God. Three words that sum up the life of Pauline: Sweet, Kind and Loving. In lieu of flowers, donations made be made in her memory to The Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation: One Intrepid Square, West 46th Street and 12th Avenue, New York, NY 10036.

Uncle Bill and Linda and family - Sending my deepest sympathy to you in the loss of Aunt Polly. I can't be there for the funeral but know that my thoughts and prayers are going up for you during this difficult time. Aunt Polly meant a lot to me throughout my entire life and I will miss her. I always enjoyed talking to her on the phone and telling her how much I loved her. Even when she got to where she couldn't talk to me or even know who I was, I think she still knew that I loved her. She is with Mom, Aunt Margaret, Uncle Jim and Uncle Archie as well as Grandma and Grandpa Bell. What rejoicing is going on in Heaven. I love you all very much.
