Mrs. Annette Adamson Massa, age 77 of Franklin, Georgia passed away at her home on Saturday, July 14, 2012.
Funeral services for Mrs. Massa were conducted on Tuesday, July 17, 2012, at 2:00 P.M. from the Tom Stutts and Son Funeral Home Chapel with the Reverend Lynn Janney officiating.
Mrs. Massa’s daughter gave a loving tribute to her mother, and Sons, Russ Massa, Tim Massa, and Ricky Massa, great-grandson, Dristin McCormick, grandson-in-law Brian McCormick, and nephew, Randy Adamson served as pallbearers. The interment followed in the Randolph Memory Gardens in Rock Mills, Alabama.
Mrs. Massa was born in Glenn, Georgia on August 24, 1934, the daughter of the late Myrtle Lucille Hall and Charles Earl Adamson. She was a member of the Rock Mills Methodist Church, and was retired from the Heard County Water Authority where she served the people with graciousness and efficiency.
One of “Miss. Annette’s” favorite activities was fishing with her family, an event that she first started as a child with her mother, and carried on the tradition with her children. She was a wonderful mother who adored her family and enjoyed making luscious meals that would delight even the pickiest of eaters. In her spare time she loved reading.
She passed onto her children a tremendous work ethic and respect for others. The lessons learned at her knee are what have made them outstanding adults. She will be greatly missed.
She is survived by one daughter, Stacy Buttrill (Dwayne) of Ephesus, GA.; three sons, Ricky Massa of Bonney Lake, WA., Tim Massa (Judy) of Franklin, GA., and Russ Massa also of Franklin, GA.; four grandchildren, Katrina, Jessica, Mandy, and Cody; and six great-grandchildren, Dristin, Cameron, Lana, Wyatt, Peyton, and Toby; and a number of nieces and nephews.
Other than her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Lenville Massa, brother, Quillian Adamson, sister, Betty Walker.
In lieu of flowers, those who wish to may make donations to the Agape hospice (West Georgia Office), The National Alzheimer’s Association, or a local church.
