Amy Lee Adams
REGION -- Amy Lee Adams, 36, lost her battle from complications with cervical cancer on January 30, 2013. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
Everyone was taken in by her bright and beautiful smile. Amy's spirit and honesty touched so many lives. She connected so genuinely with friends of every generation. Known as "the Babysitter." Amy nurtured many young lives besides her own three boys. Loving all babies and they loving her, too.
As a mom, she took special pride in her boys, Brandon, 16, Kalby, 8 and Soren, 6. They shared in her adventurous nature and appreciation of the simple pleasures. She gave them the strong foundation of being true to themselves.
Amy was the oldest of four: Jason Adams, Afghanistan and his four children, Genny, Shane, Hunter and Justin, Sean Turner, Portland and his son, Gavin, and Casey Turner, Portland. She is also survived by her grandparents, Louise Adams of Dixfield, JoAnne Palmer of West Peru, Ethelyn Turner of South Paris and Wendell and Ellen Palmer of Dixfield, who feel an exceptional loss. It's not the natural order of life for the young to die first. She was the anchor in the family. The person that maintained that connection with the family.
Amy was predeceased by her parents, Tim and Wendy Turner of Buckfield and her estranged father, David Adams of Dixfield.
There will be a small rememberence memorial at 1 p.m. Saturday at the East Hebron Baptist Church. Facilities are limited there so come prepared. This will be an informal gathering. A time to share memories and stories with each other. This is meant to be for family and her closest friends. So please honor and respect this time by keeping your visit short and sweet. For many, this is a time for closure. As a family we are ready to gradually move on to the next chapter of our lives. Amy will forever be present in our daily lives. She will be with us at the beach, on a mountain, within the wildflowers and in a pretty stone. Take the time to see the beauty everywhere, our loved ones are there.
