Myra Jean Adams

Myra Jean Adams: A star in heaven above has dimmed its lights with the passing of Myra Jean Adams, age 91 of Jacksonville, FL. She was born on March 6, 1922 in Albany, GA, and died on Sept. 22, 2013 from Alzheimer disease. Her body and mind was destroyed by the disease, but, never her spirit. She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, James Everett Adams. She is survived by her daughter, Penny Adams Landregan of Fernandina Beach, FL, and two sons, Gene Adams of Jacksonville, FL, and Dennis Adams-McDonald of Chiang Mai, Thailand; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren, and many nieces, and nephews. She was a member of Cedar Creek Baptist Church for 70 years, and sang alto in the church choir. Myra will be remembered by thousands of friends, and families for crocheting booties for their newborn babies. There will be a graveside service at Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery of Jacksonville, FL, Friday, September 27, 2013 at 11:00am, with Rev. George Mills of Yukon Baptist Church officiating. Following the service, friends, and family are invited to share in the celebration of her life at Yukon Baptist Church, 4552 120th St., Jacksonville, FL 32244. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Community Hospice of Northeast Florida, 4266 Sunbeam Rd., Jacksonville, FL 32257 in Myra Jean's memory. We thank them for the loving care they provided her in the last 9 months of her life. Funeral arrangements are under the care of Hardage-Giddens Edgewood Funeral Home, 729 South Edgewood Ave., Jacksonville, FL., 32205.

I love your grace and generosity for raising me as your son. I learned a lot from you and we shared a special Bond together. I was coming to see you but you left me before I could arrive. I know you are very happy now where you are and you certainly earned it, I know god has a special place ready for you? And I can almost see you standing proud in the alto section of the Hevenly Chior. Not a day goes by that I won't miss your love and voice.I will speak to you daily in my Prayers.
Love Always and missing you terribly...

Your Son,

My Aunty Myra Jean. Love you so much. Will think of you and cry, often. You were more than an Aunt to to me, and my brothers and sisters. You were always there with an encouraging word. A heavenly inspiration.

I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the promise held out to us by our heavenly Father. For he tells us that we will never have to suffer from illness again at Issiah 33:24 says - And no resident will say: "I am sick.
May the God of comfort be with you during this difficult time.

Although you were my aunt, you loved me as a daughter, and in my heart you have always been my " other mother". I will miss you everyday, but I know I will one day walk through the gates of heaven and be embraced by BOTH of my sweet precious mamas!
