Elizabeth was born on September 9, 1930 in Joplin, the daughter of the late, Ivan Hayden and Frances (Fahe) Hayden. She married Calvin L. Adams on August 27, 1950.

Following her retirement from Freeman Hospital she continued to volunteer in the emergency room. Elizabeth was awarded the Governor’s Volunteer Award for volunteering over 92,000 hours. She was a member of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, where she was active in Circles and her Sunday School Class. She enjoyed baking her famous chocolate chip cookies for her family and friends.

She is survived by one son, Brad Adams, Bella Vista, Ar.; her daughter-in-law, Ester Adams, Mercedes, Tx.; and cousins, Bill and Pam Wittkamp, Bunker Hill, Il. She was preceded in death by her husband, Calvin L. Adams; and one son, Brian D. Adams in October 2011.
