Rachel Denning Adams

October 9, 1922 ~ March 23, 2020

ANGIER – Rachel Denning Adams, 97, passed away peacefully on March 23, 2020 at Windsor Point in Fuquay-Varina, NC. She was born in Angier, NC on October 9, 1922 to the late Daniel Webster Denning and Malissie Jackson Denning. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, J. Clyde Adams; and her brothers and their wives, D.W. Denning, Jr. (Grace) and W. Max Denning (Betty).

She is survived by a stepson, Bobby Ray Adams (Minnie) and their family; numerous nieces and nephews including Dan Denning (Laura Ann), Raymond Smith, Donna Denning, Wesley Denning (Debra), Gary Denning, Amanda Marshall (Lee), Betty Jo Adams Spivey (Larry), Donna Adams Baker (Cecil).

Rachel lived most of her life in Angier where she was an active member of the Angier Baptist Church. After her husband’s death, she moved to Windsor Point and resided there for 19 years. Those years were happy ones with the assistance she received from the staff there. When her health began to decline, she was lovingly and compassionately cared for, even through her death, by a very special niece, Donna Baker. The other members of Rachel’s family are forever indebted to Donna.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the family is holding a small, private graveside service at Lakeside Memorial Gardens in Angier. They plan to hold a memorial service for friends and family later in the year when conditions allow.

Contributions to the Building and Grounds Fund at Angier Baptist Church, P.O. Box 130 Angier, NC 27501 in Rachel’s memory would be appreciated.



A memorial service celebrating Rachel's life will be held at a later date

    Sweet, sweet Rachel…… I always remember her with a smile on her face. What a wonderful memory. I know her family and friends will miss her, but today she is standing tall and radiant before her Lord. God bless this family at this time. I look forward the day we can all celebrate her life and our memories of that sweet smile. ( cousin) Judy Jackson Johnson
