Carole Adams

March 9, 1943 - September 19, 2021

Our precious mother, Carole Anne Adams, 78, of Winnie, died Sunday, September 19, 2021. She was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on March 9, 1943. Mrs. Adams was a United States Army veteran (Medical Specialist).

She grew up on a dairy farm and left for the Army the day after graduating from Bonduel High School. She met her husband while serving in the military, yet after marriage decided to forego a professional career in the medical industry to devote her life to her husband, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and her Catholic faith. She received roses and was serenaded by her husband throughout her entire nearly sixty-year marriage. She was more than happy to be the central figure and role model in the lives of her children and grandchildren. Anyone who knows them knows she was a star in their eyes and that’s all that ever mattered to her. She was her family’s biggest supporter and champion in raising her children in the Catholic faith, in academic achievements, in athletics, in community service, and always cooked incredible meals for 20+ people for family gatherings and for the holidays. Her mash potatoes were second to none and her Christmas trees were always stunning and over ten feet tall.

She participated in numerous groups and roles over the years having been a CCD teacher, a CYO sponsor taking teams to softball and bowling tournaments, helped raise funds for Little League and Babe Ruth baseball, held office for Babe Ruth baseball and was responsible for managing the concession stand, was a driving force for local schools to put computers in the classrooms early on, was on the Texas Rice Festival committees for Youth Day and Grand Parade for multiple years, assisted with Volunteer Fire Dept annual  fundraisers, helped establish the Chambers County Foster Care program and with the help of her friends, wrapped Christmas presents for children throughout all of Chambers County for many years. She was also the right hand to her husband in his various roles in community involvement.

Additionally, she was a staple at her children and grandchildren’s soccer, volleyball, football, basketball, tennis and baseball events…and the officials could usually hear her. She enjoyed music and was a great dancer. She loved watching the Houston Rockets and often scheduled her evenings around their TV schedule.  She also participated in and loved hosting a weekly poker game during the day with her all-lady card club for the past 30+ years and cherished their friendships.

She is survived by her husband of sixty years, Don Adams, Jr.; daughter, Deanna Bigler and husband, Terry; sons, Robin Adams and  fiancé, Kathy Robinson; and Scott Adams and wife, Angela; daughter, Wendy Adams-Bunch; grandchildren, Dustin Adams; Ashley Greenhill; Kallen Doucet; Aaron Adams; Taylor Adams and wife, Jessica; Cory Adams and wife, Victoria; Lauren Burrell and husband, Cameron; Madison Wood and husband, Ryan; Mackenzie Sikes and fiancé, Rickey Elmer; Mason Sikes; Megan Robinson; and Kaitlin Robinson; great-grandchildren, Olivia Greenhill, Landry Greenhill, Cooper Greenhill, Miller Adams, Baby Adams on the way, Bryar Burrell, Gracelyn Wood, Hayden Mitchael, and Hadley Elmer; and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members. She is preceded in death by her father, Fred Sobiesczyk; mother, Irene Pearl Sobiesczyk; and sister, Mardelle Sievert.
