Mrs. Jane Adams

Mrs. Linda “Jane” Rogers Adams passed away peacefully at her home on January 5, 2022.

She was born January 29, 1943 to James Artie Rogers and Bernice Traylor Rogers in Bowdon, Georgia.

She lived her life in Heard County and graduated from Heard County High School in 1961.

This is where she would meet the love of her life, Johnny Adams, on the school bus going to a basketball game.

Of course, she was a cheerleader and he was a basketball player. She married Johnny September 9, 1962 at the First Baptist Church of Franklin and shortly after they moved to Atlanta.

While in Atlanta they had two children James William “Jimmy” Adams and Cynthia Anne Adams.

In 1972, they decided to move back to Heard County where she became a paraprofessional and school bus driver for the school system. She is remembered by her students as being infinitely patient, kind and loving.

In the later years, she discovered Longaberger baskets and enjoyed traveling around to sell baskets and participate in the conventions.

She also enjoyed being one of the founding members of the Red Hat Society and all the trips she took with her friends.

She was a proud member of the James Stewart chapter of the Daughters of the Revolution. When people speak of Jane, the words most used are kind and loving to everyone she met.

Jane is preceded in death by her mother and father. She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Johnny Adams ; her son Jimmy (Cathy) of Newnan; her daughter Cynthia (Albert) of Atlanta; grandchildren Alexandra, Jordan (Antonia), Ashton, Anna, Albert Joseph, and Sara; greatgrandchildren James and Carter. She is also survived by her brother Donald Rogers (Brenda) of Franklin and multiple nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be Tuesday January 11, 2022 from 4-6pm at Stutts Funeral home.

A memorial service will be held Wednesday January 12, 2022 at 2pm at the First United Methodist Church in Franklin.

A private graveside internment for family and close friends will be held at Franklin City Cemetery.

The family would like to sincerely thank all the caregivers who took care of Mrs. Adams during these last few years. Your kindness and care made her life much brighter.

May we serve one another as Jane did with strength, love, dignity and kindness.
