Anna Scriber Adams, a daughter and servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, was created in HIS image (Genesis 1:26), known by God, and set aside to do good works for the Kingdom of God. She was born 8 July 1919, in Hollywood, Maryland to the late James Victor Scriber and Nettie Polk Lyles. At the sweet age of 100, she completed her assignment and was escorted home by heavenly angels on 6 May 2020. Originally from Hollywood, Maryland, Mrs. Adams spent her last days at Sage Point Nursing Home in La Plata, Maryland.My mother attended school in a one room schoolhouse in Hollywood, Maryland. Curious and ambitious, she desired to be a medical doctor or veterinarian; however, due to obstacles that stood in her way during that time, she decided to pursue nursing instead. In the mid-1930’s she worked as a nursing assistant at a hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Years later she decided to return to Hollywood, Maryland, and accepted a position as a secretary at Patuxent River Naval Station (PAX). While working at PAX, she met and married (the late) Robert Smith Adams.My mother enjoyed gardening and reading about history, nature, and politics. She loved her family and took pride and joy in celebrating family gatherings. She often spoke of the joys of growing up on Sotterley and the wonderful Christmas’ they shared, and how her parents provided well for them.I would like for you to remember my mother by the life she led. She loved caring for children, and she did her best to make all who crossed her path feel welcomed and loved.In addition to her parents, husband and son, Robert (Teddy) Smith Adams, Jr., she is also preceded in death by her sisters: Civilla Crawford, Venita Kelly, Virginia Chappell and Estelle Collins; and her brothers: Philip, Edward, Victor, Clarence, Stansbury, Saunders, James “Tommy”, Douglas, and Joseph “Spencer” Scriber.She is survived by her daughter, Myra Adams, of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and her grandson Brandon Rafael Adams, of California, Maryland, her grandchildren, and a host of loving nieces and nephews.
Our Aunt Anna
Out of 18 children, you were the last one here on this earthy ground. God put his arms around you thru all of this confusion here on earth and in his soft voice said, “my child your task has been completed and it’s time to come home. You closed your eyes and when they open again, Grandpop, Grandma Scriber and your sibling surrounded you, and standing on each side of you are Uncle Robert and Teddy. You then knew that you were at home in HEAVEN. I recall so many fun days at your house, especially eating those apples from the tree. You always made time for us, not only my family but also the extended Scriber Family. We will always remember you and the love you gave us.
Rest in peace our beautiful Aunt Anna.
Mara, Brandon and great-grandchildren – Sending prayers to all of you at this time. Always remember all is good thru GOD. Remember your loving mother and grandmother, because she will truly be missed. Love you all.
