(Hall) Adams, age 81, of Quincy, IL passed away on Sunday, April 21, 2019 at the Quincy Senior Center in Quincy, IL.  She was born on February 21, 1938 in Hull, IL to William and Myra Whitaker Hall.  She married Mike Adams in Springfield, IL on April 8, 1971, and he preceded her in death in 2008.

Dorothy and Mike lived in Springfield for several years.  After his passing, she moved to the Quincy Senior Center, where she enjoyed living and had many friends and felt very much at home.  She loved teddy bears and her apartment was always full of them.  She liked to show them to anyone that came to visit and was so proud.  Dorothy enjoyed doing crafts, watching movies, eating popcorn, and visiting with her friends.  She also liked to attend the Barry Apple Festival, spend time with her family, and she enjoyed going shopping.  Dorothy absolutely loved fried chicken.

She is survived by a brother, Herman E. Hall of Keokuk, IA; three sisters, Doris Hall of Pittsfield, IL, Shirley (DeWayne) Williams of Barry, IL, and Betty (Larry) Huddleston of Beverly, IL; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Condolence Booklet

   Posted Mon April 22, 2019
Please allow me to offer my condolences to Mrs. Adams' family with these encouraging words: One day, before Martha’s brother Lazarus took sick and died, Jesus provided new information on the resurrection hope, saying: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29) This is the resurrection hope for, Dorothy, as well. Truly, the resurrection is something for us to look forward to with eager anticipation and joy. I hope that this verse will comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved sister, aunt and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, -
