Growing up in rural Lucas County, Verla attended Wren Hill, Norwood, and Lucas schools alongside her brothers Merrill and George before graduating from Chariton High School in 1967. It was there that she met her future husband, Gary Adams. On September 22, 1967, Verla and Gary were united in marriage at the Norwood Church. Over the years, the couple was blessed with four sons: Greg, Kyle, Kurt, and Eric. Verla enjoyed being a stay at home mother and raising her boys. Throughout her lifetime, Verla had many hobbies, including collecting antiques and restoring antique dolls. After the boys had grown, Verla and Gary especially enjoyed traveling across the country together, searching for items to add to their collection. The couple also enjoyed spending their winters in Florida. There, Verla loved spending time walking the trails and bird watching at the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in Naples as well as collecting seashells on Sanibel Island. Verla had great fashion sense; whether it was clothing, shoes, hair, or nails, she enjoyed shopping and keeping up with the styles. Verla also enjoyed spending time with her dachshund, Oliver- he could be found at her side even on the longest of trips. Most importantly, however, Verla loved spending time with her grandchildren; they were her greatest joy in life and over the years she attended countless activities and events. Verla passed away November 7, 2018. She will be greatly missed by her husband of 51 years, Gary Adams; children: Greg Adams, Kyle (Jamie) Adams, and Eric (Kayla Wilcoxson) Adams; and grandchildren: Kurt, Chet, Samantha, Kylie, and Olive. Verla was preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd and Dorothy Roberts; infant son, Kurt Steven Adams; brothers, Merrill and George Roberts, and an infant brother.
