Obituary for Elsie Elizabeth "Betty" Adams

Elsie Elizabeth (Betty) Adams, age 80 of Kennesaw, passed away Thursday, December 20, 2018. A funeral service will be held 2 pm Saturday, December 22, 2018, in the chapel of Carmichael Funeral Home in Smyrna. Interment will be in Crest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery. A native of Atlanta, Ms. Adams graduated from West Fulton High School and Emory University. She received a masters degree in governmental administration from Georgia State University. Betty enjoyed a variety of careers. She began teaching at Brown Elementary in Cobb Country. Then at the age of 25, she went to Germany to teach military children. Later she was worked with the Federal Government where one of her assignments was to compose a handbook for implementing Title 9. She had a great love of travel and traveled extensively in Europe as well as the United States and Cambodia. This leads her to working as a tour guide in Atlanta and on the West Coast. Her other passion was reading so it was only natural that she worked for the Cobb County Library for the last 18 years. She was preceded in death by her parents Samuel Lee and Elsie Elizabeth Adams, and her brother William “Bill” Adams. Surviving are brother Sam Adams, III, nieces, and nephews Mary (Anthony) Cain, Virginia (Kevin) Broderick, Sam (Judy) Adams IV, Lee (Chris) Adams, great nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews. The family will receive friends from 1-2 pm Saturday, December 22, 2018, at the funeral home. Carmichael Funeral Home in Smyrna is in charge of arrangements. www.carmichaelcares.com
