Nancy is also blessed with many surviving nieces, nephews and wonderful friends. She grew up in Memphis, TN. She attended East High School where she was the very first Miss East High. A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a B.S. in education, she spent most of her teaching career at Harding Academy where she taught first grade for 25 years. In addition to teaching, she loved gardening, traveling, arts and scrapbooking, but her greatest passion was for her family. She loved to decorate and celebrate the seasons, which is why her family is so very thankful for the 2010 holiday season and the wonderful times we had together. Her sense of humor and incredible talents in the kitchen always made for many joyous occasions. She was married to Charles L. Adams, Jr. for 32 years. They shared a love for dancing, spending many Saturday nights at the Elk’s Lodge. Her grandsons, Hank and Luke helped her paint a mural on the outside of her potting shed, a great place to check if you couldn’t find her. She cherished those memories every planting season. With her granddaughter, Sally, she enjoyed canning pickles and sharing her childhood memories. She hand-made nearly all the décor in her granddaughter, Haley’s nursery and enjoyed countless hours of ‘tea party’ and ‘beauty shop’. She was a long time member of Belle Meade United Methodist Church where she served God in many roles, including teaching 3rd grade Sunday school for 8 years. In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations to be made to Belle Meade United Methodist Church, Adventure Science Museum or the Parkinson’s Society. A celebration of Nancy’s life will be held 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at Belle Meade United Methodist Church with Reverend Regina Proctor officiating. Interment to follow at Woodlawn Memorial Park. Visitation will be 5 – 7 p.m. Monday and 1 hour prior to the service Tuesday, all will be held at the Church.

"Gordon, I am so sorry for the lost of your mom. You and your family have my deepest sympathy..." SHANIKA YANCEY (MEMPHIS, TN)
