Beulah Gail Adams, 90, was called home by the Lord on Monday, May 28, 2018. She was living at Overland Court Senor Living, Memory Care.
Beulah was born on March 16, 1928 in Jennings County, Indiana to Ancil and Edna Shuter. She was the second of five children.
She met the love of her life, Harvey Austin Adams, and they were married January 19, 1946. They were blessed with twin daughters in 1950 who died at birth. Their daughter, Gail, was born in 1951 and their son, Harvey, was born in 1953. Beulah operated the soda fountain at Sav-Mor Drug on Ustick Road in the 1960’s.
Beulah was an extraordinary cook and gifted in many crafts including: sewing, cake decorating, floral arrangements, ceramics and quilting.
Beulah organized the Ustick Grade School Carnival in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
She attended the Community Christian Center for nearly 30 years where she served in the Ladies Ministry. She recently attended River City Church. She accepted Christ as her Savior after her husband Harvey was in a near fatal car crash in 1972.
Beulah dearly loved people and spent a great deal of her life serving others. She loved and spent time with family at the Meridian Speedway races, camping at Edna Creek, going to the cabin on Thorn Creek, playing Rummy, Pinochle, and Chuck-A-Luck. She was the Rummy Queen!
She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, twin daughters, another daughter and three brothers.
Beulah is survived by her daughter Gail (Bill) Thompson, son Harvey (Sandy) Adams and 14 grandchildren: April (Lars) Hansen, Jason (Krista) Thompson, Katie (Troy) Paulin, Melody (Matt) Robinson, Tim Adams, David Adams, Michael (Becca) Adams, Kimberly Adams, Gabe (Suz) Adams, Joel (Brianna) Adams, Abby Adams, Tammy (Bruce) Maynard, Lori Campbell, and Michelle (Dave) Baugh. She also had 22 great grandchildren, with two more due soon, and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Mom (Grandma) was an amazing grandma; always willing to help with all the grandkids. All of our family has very special memories of our time with grandma and grandpa. She loved her family very much and they were very important to her. We know we will see her again in Heaven someday. We loved her very much!
Many, many thanks for our family and friends for visiting Grandma and especially to Krista for spending a lot of time with her.
Also, we were very blessed by the excellent care mom received by the staff at Overland Court Senior Living, Memory Care. Mom received the best care from these special people. Tiffany was such a blessing and comfort, especially in mom’s final days. We will always be thankful and appreciate the loving care she gave our mom.
Thank you and God bless all of you!
