Mary L. Adams, 96, of Decatur, formerly of Centralia, passed away July 10, 2020 at Decatur Memorial Hospital. She was born the daughter of Charles A. and Dorothy D.

In addition to her husband, Mary was preceded in death by both of her parents Charles and Dorothy Feiock; sister Minnie Marvel and brother Harry Feiock.

Mrs. Adams was a devote Christian woman who dedicated her time to teaching Sunday School at the First Baptist Church in Centralia. She believed in mentoring to the next generation of followers, so she passionately served on the Board of Christian Education and Missions. She faithful served the City of Centralia for 20 plus years as a city clerk, and previously Montgomery Ward. Mary was grateful for the 11 years to remain at home with the help of her special friends.
