Obituary for LEMUEL ARTHUR ADAMS
Lemuel Adams peacefully departed this life for his eternal rest with the Lord on Monday, March 19, 2012. Lemuel was born on May 2, 1920, to the late John and Georgia Adams. Lemuel was born and raised in Calvert County, MD, where he attended public school. He was united in holy matrimony to Lillian Ford, on March 25,1946. God blessed this union with four children: Ardelia, Bertina, Alvin (deceased) and Anna; adopted daughters Rosemary Heard and Paula Harp. Lemuel was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather. As a young man Lemuel accepted Christ as his personal Savior, and attended (along with his wife) Coopers United Methodist Church. He was a member of the Trustees, UM Men and Pastor Parrish Relations Committee. Lemuel also sang on the Senior Choir. Lemuel had a quiet, sweet spirit, and loved his family and friends, dearly. He particularly enjoyed visiting his brothers and sisters. They always greeted each other with a hug and kiss, and ended their visit with the words 'I love you.' Lemuel loved the Lord with all his heart and even through his illness remained faithful in his service to God. He would often recite Psalm 23, 'The Lord is my Shepherd,' or sing some of his favorite hymns, 'There's a Bright Side Somewhere' and 'Face to Face.' Lemuel was preceded in death by his son, Alvin, and six siblings: Stanley, George, Mary Susie, Bernice, Georgia and Thurman. He leaves loving memories to his wife Lillian Adams; children: Ardelia Nelson, Bertina Cleveland (Vincent), Anna Adams, Rosemary Heard and Paula Harp; grandchildren: Priscilla Jones, Pierre Wills (Mika), and Rodney Nelson; great grandchildren: D'Andre, Dajon, Mikayla and Gina; brothers: Joe and James; sister: Martha; sisters and brothers-in-law: Ethel, Dorothy, Angelina, Ruth, Helen, Hattie (Bubby), Thelma, Emma, Estelle (Bobby), Ronald and George; special and devoted friends: Aunt Mary and Uncle Mac, Cousin Dorothy Smith and Gilbert Chaney; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends; and special pets: Tyi and Sheba.
