Doris Adams Obituary

It is with deep sadness that we announcement of Doris Sybil Williams Adams passing peacefully on December 16, 2023 after a quick bout of pneumonia.

Doris was 94 years old & was born in Many, La. on January 4th 1929, but grew up most of her life in Warren, Tx.  She was married to Willie Homer Adams Jr. for 70 years. They raised 3 children in Nederland, TX where she was the seamstress for the nuns at St. Mary's hospital in Port Arthur, Tx for 20 years.   She loved to fish, garage sale and travel.  She hated the word bored and depressed saying those words didn't exist. Doris wore many hats and had several nick names. Her family called her Punkin but many called her memaw. She was mom, mother, memes, jokester and so much more to many people. Mom will be dearly missed and will always be remembered.

Mom was predeceased by her parents and 7 siblings and one son Phillip Wayne Adams and her husband Willie Homer Adams Jr.
