She was also proceeded in death by her brother, Ed “Sonny” Curtis; her son, Daniel “Danny” Gene Adams; and her daughter, Sherry Ann (Adams) Reynolds.
Mrs. Adams donated her body to science. A memorial service is planned for a later date and will be announced.
Special thanks to all caregivers who helped Betty through her long struggle with cancer.
