Nancy Ruth (Foster) Adams, the daughter of Dale Dwight and Clara Arlene (Marler) Foster, was born on April 14, 1952 in Woodward, Oklahoma.  Nancy attended grade school in Woodward, Oklahoma and graduated with the class of 1970 from Woodward High School.  Nancy was married in 1971 and to this union one son was born Kevin Michael Terry.  Nancy married Mike Adams on May 9, 1986 in Gainesville, Texas, were they made their home in Guymon, Oklahoma.  Nancy moved to Buffalo, Oklahoma in 1989, where she was very active with the girls Kathryn Michelle and Kara May.  Nancy enjoyed the band activities and sport activities with the girls.  Nancy loved fishing, camping, and gardening.  Nancy worked at the Oklahoma Department of Transportation on survey crew and as a construction secretary for 20 years where she retired.  Nancy and Mike spent their free time at various lakes, Fort Supply, Foss, and Texhoma.  Nancy’s love of fishing came from her dad and granddad who taught her how to fish. Nancy enjoyed her grandchildren attending their activities when her health permitted; she also took great delight in spending time with  special nieces & nephews who loved her very deeply. She and Mike shared many good times with her sisters and their families Nancy loved her extended family of Aunts and her special cousins very much and enjoyed their company deeply. Nancy had a very special prayer relationship with her cousin Reverend EJ Adams, their telephone prayer sessions allowed her to cope with her illness and gave a deep spring of life she drew from every day. Nancy loved her friends and family and worried more about their welfare than her own. She loved her miniature schnauzers and loved caring for their needs. A more giving person would be hard to find and her strength against overwhelming heath issues was amazing to see. Nancy lost her long fight with her illness, and went to be with the Lord on Monday, December 30, 2013.  Nancy was preceded in death by her parents. Nancy is survived by her husband Mike of the home, two daughters Kathryn Michelle Snider and husband Rian of Woodward, Oklahoma and Kara May Sharum and husband Roy of Wylie, Texas, son Kevin Michael Terry and wife Kimberly of Gate, Oklahoma, sisters Donna Decker, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Annita Johnson of Woodward, Oklahoma, Sherri Clark of Woodward, Oklahoma; 5 grandchildren, Michael Craig Sanders, Zachary Rian Snider, Matthew Shane Snider, Kaden Michael Terry, Alexis Danielle McIntyre and other family and friends.
