Linda Adams


Linda G. Adams, 67, of Columbus, passed from this life at 8:31 a.m. Wednesday, August 17, 2016, at her residence.

She graduated from Columbus High School in 1967 and was a homemaker.

She had a tremendous love for her family and enjoyed spending time with them. Her nieces and nephews had a special name for her; they called her Ninny. She was an avid reader, loved the outdoors, fishing and traveling and especially seaside destinations and going to the beach.

Her favorite thing to do on her birthday night was to spend the entire night watching shooting stars. She loved all the things in the sky, the moon, the stars and, as everyone who knew her knew, she loved the sun the most. She had a favorite bible verse that she would say every day: “This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

She was a member of the Women of the Moose Lodge.

The funeral will be conducted at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Barkes, Weaver & Glick Funeral Home on Washington Street.

Family and friends may call from 4 p.m. until service time Tuesday at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, the American Diabetes Association or the American Stroke Association.
