Vera L. Adkison • October 28, 2021



Vera Adkison, 91, passed away October 28, 2021. She was a devoted wife, mother, and MawMaw. She enjoyed golfing, fishing, working in her yard, and her nightly word search; however, the time she spent making memories with her grandchildren and great grandchildren was her most cherished of all. Her family will never forget the many wonderful dinners with her famous fried chicken and banana pudding, spending summer days shelling peas, visiting her at McRae’s, the endless sleepovers, and daily phone conversations. Though our lives are forever changed, the memories and love shared will remain in our hearts until we meet again.

Vera was preceded in death by her parents, K. E. Jaye and Edna Jaye; daughter, Carolyn Baldwin; her brothers, Nolan Jaye, David Jaye, and Kenneth Jaye; and sister, Edna Stewart.

    Donna, I wish I could be with you at this difficult time, but I cannot attend your mom’s funeral. I pray for peace for you and all of your family.

    Please let me know if you need anything.

  2. Donna Presley Gray says:

    Donna – I have so many great memories of your Mom, spending time with you and her during our childhood. How we always thought it was funny that the 2 Donna’s Mother’s both worked at Sears and our love for roller skating. I know this is a difficult time for you but know I am here for anything you or your family needs.
