Glenda Marie Adams

Glenda Sellers Adams went to her home in Heaven on Friday, October 18th, after a lengthy illness. She was born on June 13th, 1944 to the Late Harley and Virgie Ensley Sellers.

Glenda was joyfully married to Bill Adams on September 19th, 1964.  They enjoyed 55 years of marriage and together they raised two sons, Nick and Jerry Adams.

She is survived by her husband Bill, sons Nick (Kelly) and Jerry (Donna), brothers James and Harley Sellers, sisters Mary Ellen Allen and Gail Buchanan. She was also survived by three granddaughters, Madelyn (Brandon), Abigail, and Hannah (Caleb), one grandson, Grayson, and two great grandchildren, Chaseton and Sabelle.

She was a woman loved by many. Glenda had a heart for her husband, children, and grandchildren. She loved to sew and make quilts, bake, go on trips, and spend time with her family. The joy that she brought into the lives of the people around her was something that could not be taken away. Her warm embrace, caring spirit, and sweet smile are only a few of the things that she will be remembered by. She always had stories to share about her family growing up. They made us laugh and remember the memories we shared with her.  Glenda was a loving mother, devoted wife, and excellent home maker.

Services will be held at East Sylva Baptist Church on Sunday October, 20th where she was a member at 3:00pm with Rev. Reed Benson and Rev. Charles Dean officiating. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 1:00-3:00pm. Burial services will be held at Old Field Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

Glenda will always hold a special place in my heart! When my family went to Scotts Creek Church Glenda made me feel comfortable with leaving my baby in her arms(Samantha Bryson). I knew she would take care of her and love her as if she was her very own. My God help this special family with their loss & help them until we All see Glenda again! Debbie Postell Chastain

Bill and Family, I was so sorry to hear about Glenda's passing yesterday. She was a wonderful lady that will be greatly missed by everyone. I will always remember that night in January of 1980 that she invited me and James to dinner at your house, and that was the beginning of a courtship and marriage that lasted for almost 31 years until James passed away. I know the pain you're feeling now, but just hold onto the wonderful memories that you have shared, and they will help get you through those lonely times. My prayers and thoughts are with you in the difficult days ahead.

She was a special person who we enjoyed so much. It was fun finding the wintergreen mints and the sun dancers for her. We all loved her and will miss her a lot. Friday mornings in the beauty shop will not be the same. Our prayers are with the family. Love you all and ask God to be with you. Linda Sellers and family

Dear Bill and family, I am so sorry to learn of Glenda's passing. She was a brave fighter through all her illness, and you were such a gracious and loving caregiver. May you all be comforted in knowing Glenda is resting with Jesus, her Savior. We hold you all in our hearts and our prayers are with you in the coming days of sorrow. Love in Christ, Pauline & Lewis Beck
