Vera Dee Rose Adams, 85, of Springville passed away on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at Utah Valley Hospital.

She was born on November 13, 1933, in Lakeshore, Utah, the daughter of Albert Leo Rose and La Vera Graves. She was the ninth of twelve children.

She has now been reunited with her sweetheart Perry C. Adams who she has dearly missed for the last 35 years. They were married May 16, 1951 in the Manti Temple.

Perry and Dee made their first home in Orem, Utah where Christine and Steven were born. They later moved to Lehi where they welcomed Laura Lee and Perry. They moved to Provo, Utah where Cheryl, Willis, Julie, James, Angela, and Sharmane were born. They moved to Springville in 1980. Perry died October 9, 1983. Dee finished raising James, Angela, and Sharmane. Dee received her GED while James and Angela were in High School, going to night classes.

Dee was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served in many church callings throughout her life including, Primary Presidency, Relief Society Presidency, Librarian, and a variety of teaching positions.

In addition to being a mother and an incredible homemaker, Dee loved gardening, sewing, canning, and quilting. Dee loved visiting her children and being a part of their lives. When she couldn’t be with them, she served them in other ways, such as the Levi quilts she made for each grandchild that will always be treasured.

Her first real job other than being Mom was at Kara Chocolate. She made some great friends there, especially Carol and Rada. She later worked for WDS doing demonstrations at Costco in Orem.

Surviving are her sister Alene (Delos) Tanner; her children; Christine (Rit) Grange of Lehi, UT; Steve (Judi) Adams of Mayfield, UT; Laura Lee (Jeff) Lane of Provo, UT; Perry (Melody) Adams of Payson, UT; Cheryl (Tony) Kogianes of Fountain Green, UT; Willis Kent (Abby) Adams of Springville, UT; Julie Adams of Springville, UT; James (Shiree) Adams of Spanish Fork, UT; Angela (Marshall) Egan of Vancouver, WA; and Sharmane Jacobson of Springville, UT. She is also survived by 36 grandchildren and 41 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, 10 siblings, her husband, Perry C. Adams, a son-in-law, Corey Jacobson, a granddaughter, Brooklynn Reynolds, and a great grandson, Caleb Dee Lane.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at the Kolob 4th Ward Chapel, 2557 Dalton Drive, Springville, Utah. The family will visit with friends Thursday, January 17 from 6:00-8:00 and Saturday from 9:30-10:30 at the church prior to services. Dee will be interred in the Provo City Cemetery.

We didn't know your mom, but it is obvious that she was very special to have had a daughter like you, Cheryl. May she rest in peace for a job well done.
