Eleanor Jean Adams, age 66, of Center, passed away July 4, 2016 after a brief illness.
A graveside memorial service is planned for Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at Oaklawn Memorial Park in Center.
Eleanor was born March 23, 1950, in Center. Eleanor was a registered nurse for many years and enjoyed helping people, whether it was on her rounds at the hospital, or lovingly and generously caring for her family and friends. She loved to laugh and all who knew her will miss her sense of humor and easy smile. She loved animals and had many pets – her “babies” – throughout her life, and although she had no children, she had a niece and three nephews whom she loved and doted on as if they were her own.
Eleanor is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Franky and Jerilyn Adams of Center; three nephews and a niece, Jeff Adams (and wife, Shauna) of Center, Jason Adams of Galena Park, Justin Adams of Universal City, and Jennifer Adams of Center; great-nephews and great-niece, Josh Stephenson, Elena Adams and Jonas Bushiey, all of Center; many special cousins, including Sue Jansen, Tammy Lewis, Ashley Lewis and Jimmy Rhame of Center; and a number of other family and friends. She is also survived by her beloved miniature schnauzer, Reina.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Charlie and Billie Moore, and her brother, Billy Clyde Adams.
In lieu of flowers and other gifts, the family requests that donations in her memory be made to your local animal shelter or humane society.
