Lorraine Marie (Peppenhorst) Adams was born on April 8, 1923, in Detroit, Michigan. She was the oldest of two children born to Braswell and Rosa Peppenhorst. Her younger brother was Howard Peppenhorst.

Lorraine graduated from Melvindale High School in 1941. She married Frank Adams on July 27, 1942. She is survived by their four children, seven grandchildren, sixteen great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.

Her parents learned the truth in Melvindale, Michigan, when Lorraine was five years old. Lorraine was baptized in 1938, at the age of fifteen. She was one of 15,000 children at the St. Louis, Missouri, district convention who received the publication entitled "Children" from Brother Rutherford.

During her life Lorraine experienced much opposition because of her faith. She was with others in the ministry one day in Jackson, Michigan, driving a sound car. After stopping for a time, several angry men overturned the car. On another occasion, she was participating in street witnessing in Wyandotte, Michigan, when the entire group was arrested and put in jail. They sang kingdom songs until the Congregation Servant bailed them out. That Congregation Servant became her husband four years later. She was also part of a large group of witnesses who faced mob action in Newport, Michigan. Through it all, her faithfulness never wavered. She has been an inspiration to all who knew her.

In her seventy-three years of dedicated service to Jehovah, Lorraine never missed a month in the ministry. She took advantage of her time in the rehab facility following her recent surgery to witness to the staff. In her final days she was still preaching the good news.

Lorraine fell asleep in death at her son Paul's home on Thursday, October 13, 2011, at the age of eighty-eight. She will be deeply missed.

"Jan, I am so sorry for your loss - I know you will miss her everyday until you see her again at her resurrection in paradise! She raised a beautiful..." Virginia & Allen Erickson (Katy, TX)
