Vera Jean "Jeanie" Adams

December 8, 1929 - July 3, 2017

Vera Jean “Jeanie” Adams, age 87, passed away peacefully Monday evening, July 3, 2017 at the Franklin United Methodist Community. She had made her residence there for over 45 years.

She was born December 8, 1929 in Conneaut, Ohio to the late Maurice and Helen (Alexander) Adams. She was a 1947 graduate of Broad Ripple High School. Jeanie was a member of the Grace United Methodist Church in Franklin and was very active in the services at the Franklin United Methodist Community Church. Jeanie sang in the choir at the church for 25 years. She also was a greeter and passed out hymnals before services.

During her time at the Franklin United Methodist Community, Jeanie enjoyed volunteering her time by delivering the daily mail and newspapers to the residents and would often clip coupons for the nursing staff as a way to say “thank you” for their daily care.

She loved playing Bingo, listening to music and participating in arts and crafts. Jeanie also enjoyed watching the Olympics, especially ice skating, reading the paper and watching her favorite movies: The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady. Jeanie will be remembered for her kindness, sense of humor and her positive, outgoing energy.

She will be missed by her long -time friend, advisor and self-adoptive brother, Mike Ramsey of Franklin, Aunt, Sarah Louise Kritzer of Nashville, several cousins as well as her many friends and the employees of the Franklin United Methodist Community.

Chaplain David Owens will conduct a funeral service on Wednesday at 11a.m. at the Franklin United Methodist Community Chapel: 1070 West Jefferson Street in Franklin. Friends may call from 10 a.m. until service time at the chapel. Burial will be at Greenlawn Cemetery in Franklin.

We were very sorry to hear about Jeanie's passing. She was a wonderful lady. We met Jeanie in 2009-2012 when my father-in-law Bayard Fulmer was a resident of Franklin United Methodist Home. Her room was two doors from his. They sat at the same table every day for meals. Her positive attitude and kind spirit helped him cope with life in the skilled nursing care facility. He was always so amazed that she could "remember everyone's name." I am sorry that we will be unable to attend the services. She was a sweet lady and a blessing, indeed. Jeanie, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Jan and Rick Fulmer

I was a caregiver for Jennie. She was such a sweet heart. I first meet her about 6 yrs ago. She will be missed by many. Love you Jennie and may you rest in peace.
