Shirley Lorina Adams, 84, of Pullman, went into the loving arms of Jesus on Sunday, April 25, 2021, in Moscow, at her daughter’s home.

Shirley was born July 4, 1936, in the hills of Arkansas to Raymond and Agnes Carter. When she was a young girl, her family moved to Sunnyside, Wash. She later relocated to the Seattle/Stanwood area with her six children. After her children were grown, she met and married Dennis Adams. They later made their home in Pullman, where they were very active in the lives of their grandchildren. After Dennis passed, Shirley began attending Pullman Foursquare Church where she met some wonderful friends. She later attended Living Faith Fellowship Church and was active in ladies Bible studies. Shirley loved the Lord with all of her heart. Her faithful prayers for her children and grandchildren will continue to be felt for generations to come.
