Gillian Mary Adams

May 2, 1935 ~ January 20, 2019 (age 83)

May 2, 1935 - Jan 20, 2019

Gillian Mary Adams, 83 was called home to our savior January 20, 2019.  She was born in Wellingborough, England to Alfred and Ellen Thompson.  She was preceded in death by her sisters, Madge, and Sylvia; and brothers, Geoff, Tony, and Jim.

She and her fiancé, Paul journeyed to America where they married June 2, 1962 at Warner Robins AFB, Georgia.  After being stateside for many years, she decided it was time to become an American citizen.  She studied relentlessly.  When the day came to test, she dressed in a beautiful navy and red suit to honor America.  Gill was always known to dress up if she went out, having her face and hair, “just so”.  She passed the citizenship test with flying colors and was extremely proud of this accomplishment; she did not take what she had sworn lightly.

Gill had many stories, and lots of “English” sayings that made us roar with laughter.  She was an avid fan of Cripple Creek where she loved to play the penny slots.  Gill was a loving, caring person.  She will be greatly missed by all her friends, family, and especially Vinny, Chopin, and Mr Biddles (the mischievous dogs who always managed to find their way to her home, where she opened her arms to cuddle with them and spoiled them with goodies.  She was a lover of all animals, especially dogs.  Service will be held at Ft Logan National Cemetery February 12th at 1pm.
