Elaine Adams passed away in her sleep on July 1st 2021 from a long and difficult battle with cancer. If you knew Elaine, you knew that first and foremost she embodied Jehovah's loving kindness. Her faith was immovable and her love for Jehovah outweighed everything else in her life. She was loyal to Jehovah from the moment she was baptized on June 1st, 1965, until her last breath. Born on January 26th, 1948, to Howard and Helen Wells, sister to Richard, Mike, Doris, Tom and Jon. Elaine grew up in Beardstown, Illinois. After her father passed away when she was 14 years old, Elaine and her mother Helen started studying Jehovah's words and gained peace. She drew strength from Jehovah the "father of tender mercies, the God of all comfort who comforts us in all of our trials "(2 Cor 1:3,4). In the 60's, she met and married the late Lynn Willis Nelson. Christina Nelson was her first born, and then soon followed Jeremy Nelson, a year and a half later. 10 years later Heatherlyn was born. In the mid 80's, after Elaine &Lynn divorced, she was left alone for the first time in her adult life. With a toddler in her arms, and her older childrenmoving on with their lives, she began her new life as a singleparent. Elaine, the survivor, took what little money she hadto grow her cleaning business and clientele and would go on to run her company for 20+ years. After her divorce, she later fell in love with her best friend, Chris Adams. They were married on October 14 1988. During this time, Elaine had Christopher Adams II, her youngest child. She then later became a regular pioneer for several years. Elaine & Chris would go on to spend over three decades together, bonded by their mutual love & respect for Jehovah, spending time with friends & family, traveling, and going on adventures. Chris stood by her side throughout her battle with cancer, did everything in his power to keep Elaine healthy, loved, and safe. In her final moments, she was accompanied at home by Chris, her devoted husband, her youngest son Christopher, and a couple of her life-long loving friends, were there by her side. Elaine (Wells) Adams, a beauty inside & out, was highly respected & loved in her community, she was loving, loyal to her faith, joyous, corny yet hip, eager to laugh, lover of all animals, especially her kitties, energetic, optimistic, and the cleanest person you will probably ever meet. People have always been drawn to her, and she was so kind and accepting, and eager to teach people about Jehovah. Please remember how hard she could laugh and how happy she was when she was in her congregation. Her love for Jehovah is unforgettable. She has "fought the fine fight, and has ran the race to the finish" (2 Tim 4:7). Her assurance was in the words found at John 5:28, 29 that will be fulfilled along with Rev 21:4 in which the promise of sickness, death and pain being no more, will be a reality. And there will be a resurrection! Elaine's family would like to thank you for your emotional and loving support during this extremely difficult time. Thank you to all the friends & family for providing meals, and extra hands during Elaine's treatments, and while she was on hospice.
