Judith “Judy” Adams, 77, died May 15.
Born in Paulding, Ohio, she was a daughter of the late John and Gene Wiegel Commers. On August 31, 1962, she married Den Adams, who preceded her in death on November 29, 2013. She was also preceded in death by an infant sister, Gene Ann Commers.
Mrs. Adams retired in 2004 from John Manville, Defiance, Ohio after 30 years of service. She was a member of Quarter Century Club and Republican Women of Paulding County.
She had the giving heart of a servant. She faithfully served the Lord Jesus after committing her life to Him. She also served others in so many ways. Not only serving her family, but strangers as well. She took literally Jesus’s advice in the book of Matthew 22, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and love your neighbor as yourself.”
Mrs. Adams enjoyed reading, cooking for her family, playing cards and board games. She enjoyed watching the Hallmark Channel, the Game Show Network, and Kentucky Wildcat basketball games. She also loved attending any and all extracurricular activities of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She is survived by her children, Dennis (Lana) Adams, John (Jennifer) Adams and Tracy (Paul) Roddy; sisters, Janet Commers and Betty (Roland) Ganger, all of Paulding; eight grandchildren, Sheri, Kelsey, Maycee, Madison, Bailey, Cole, Ethan, and Jack; and great-grandchildren, Weston, Landen, Charlotte, Owen, Bristol, Abel, and Colton.
Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m., Wednesday, May 20, at Den Herder Funeral Home, Paulding, Ohio. She will be laid to rest in Paulding Memorial Cemetery.
Visitation will be Wednesday, May 20, from 10 a.m. until time of services. Those wishing to attend are asked that you maintain social distancing and encourage responsible virus protection measures while offering the family support.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations made to Wounded Warriors, World Challenge, or Donor’s Choice.
