PAULDING – Judith “Judy” Adams, age 77, died Friday, May 15.

She was born in Paulding on June 6, 1942 daughter of the late John and Gene (Wiegel) Commers. On Aug. 31, 1962 she married Den Adams who preceded her in death on Nov. 29, 2013. She retired in 2004 from John Manville, Defiance after 30 years of service. She was a member of Quarter Century Club and Republican Women of Paulding County.

She had the giving heart of a servant. She faithfully served the Lord Jesus after committing her life to Him. She also served others in so many ways. Not only serving her family, but strangers as well. She took literally Jesus' advice in the book of Matthew 22, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and love your neighbor as yourself."

She enjoyed reading, cooking for her family, playing cards and board games. She enjoyed watching the Hallmark Channel, the Game Show Network, and Kentucky Wildcat Basketball games. She also loved attending any and all extracurriculars of her children, grands and greats! 

She is survived by her children: Dennis (Lana) Adams, John (Jennifer) Adams and Tracy (Paul) Roddy; sisters, Janet Commers and Betty (Roland) Ganger all of Paulding; eight grandchildren: Sheri, Kelsey, Maycee, Madison, Bailey, Cole, Ethan, and Jack; and great-grandchildren: Weston, Landen, Charlotte, Owen, Bristol, Abel, and Colton.

She is also preceded in death by an infant sister, Gene Ann Commers.
