Listen to this obituary

Odeen Wilson Adams, 87, passed away on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at North Mississippi Medical Center-Amory. Born on July 24, 1932 in Monroe County, he was a son to Andrew and Leona McCullen Adams. Mr. Adams attended Greenwood Spring School and later married Jean Davidson in 1952. He served his country in the U.S. Army where he was stationed in Germany. Prior to his retirement, Mr. Adams was a long-time employee of the United States Postal Service; he also, in earlier days, delivered bread for Holsum Bread in Amory and he was the proprietor of Adams Grocery for a number of years. Idleness wasn’t his in his vocabulary and he knew the value of hard work and integrity and he displayed a dedicated work ethic which he imparted to his family. Every year, he and his wife raised a big garden and he was known for his tomatoes and would give of his fruits to anyone who would come by often and take in trade for conversation. Mr. Adams was a cattleman but he also enjoyed raising pigs. He was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and had served as a deacon at East Amory Baptist Church and was the cook during church camp. The pride of his life was his grandchildren where he would spoil them, impacting their life for good, making eternal memories.
