Barbara Adams

August 6, 1945 — September 16, 2009

Barbara Smith Adams, of Scottsdale, AZ and Jackson Hole, WY, died on September 16, 2009 in Kemmerer, Wyoming from injuries sustained in a car accident. She was 64 years old. Barbara was raised with her siblings Dan (deceased), Connie, Kathy, Ginny, David, and Bill in Lorain, Ohio. She was born on August 6, 1945 to Daniel and Helen Smith. She attended Denison University where she met and later married her husband of 41 years, Clarke Adams, who survives her. Barbara was the heart and soul of a large family. She dedicated her life to raising her six children: Helen (Paul) Casseday, Clarke (Lisa), Sarah (Julian Lewis), Christopher (Abigail), David (Jessica), and Taylor. Barbara doted on her grandchildren, recently adding a ninth grandchild two days before her death. She will be missed by them all: Jackson and Owen Adams (New York, NY), Benjamin and Ellianna Lewis (Phoenix, OR), Ryan and Emily Casseday (Anthem, AZ) and Paige, Colin and Tristan Adams (Darien, CT). Barbara nurtured her children and grandchildren and her commitment to raise them with integrity and self-confidence has provided them with a foundation to weather this tragic loss. She loved to plan family get-togethers, especially the traditional family reunion in Jackson Hole each Christmas. She leaves behind a loving and sorely bereft circle of family and friends. Her presence, love, and guidance will be missed by all who knew her. Condolences may be sent to 9820 Thompson Peak Pkwy, #717, Scottsdale, AZ 85255 or RemeberingBarbaraSmithAdams@gmail.com There will be a memorial service to celebrate her life on October 9th at one o'clock at Brophy Chapel in Phoenix, AZ In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Shriners Hospital for Children, Philadelphia, PA http://www.shrinershq.org/Hospitals/Philadelphia/ or the Alzheimer's Association http://www.alz.org/index.asp
