Josephine M. Adams

April 18, 1922 — July 19, 2020

Josephine M. Adams, age 98, passed away July 19, 2020 at home. One of 12 children, Josephine was born April 18, 1922 in Corning, Ohio to Casper and Margaret (Duffy) Nash. She married Arthur T. Adams July 3, 1948 in Columbus, Ohio and together they moved to Toledo. A devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she prioritized family and church. Josephine and Arthur were founding members of Christ the King Church where she volunteered until a few years ago. Josephine was not only a great cook, but she also will be remembered by many for her baking. Her specialty was pie. Apple, peach, or blueberry pie, whichever she made it was exceptional. She loved traveling with her husband Arthur, whether it was out of the country for his work or to her granddaughter’s horse shows, she enjoyed it all.
Surviving are her loving daughter Mary (James) Lillie; grandsons James Lillie III and Christopher Lillie; granddaughters Melissa Adams and Sarah (John) Jackson. Also surviving are 2 great-grandchildren Alexander (Maria)Fick and Addyson Adams. Preceding her in death were her parents, 11 brothers and sisters and her son Richard.
Contributions are preferred to Christ the King Catholic Church Capital Campaign.
