      Comments and Stories from Loudene Tolars:
      Annie had brown hair which was never cut in the back until she was about 80 yrs old (after having heart bypass surgery), which she braided in a bun on the back with soft waves in the front. She had green eyes.

      Annie Mae Adams was left a widow with5 children still at home, the youngest (myself) 14 months old. She worked in the cotton fields, on a WPA program, anything she could get to provide for the family. Later on her sister, Opal, got her a job at the shipyard in Greens Bayou as a painter. After World War II she worked as a seamstress at The Fashion and then at Battlesteins, both high fashion stores in downtown Houston, again through Aunt Opal. After that Aunt Opal got her on at Armour's meat packing plant, also downtown on San Jacinto and Commerce Streets. She worked in the "cooler" skinning wieners and later handled the packaging materials. Armoun's movedout NW of Houston on Rankin Rd and she retired in the '60's.

      She bought herfirst car, a 1958 Chevrolet and had to learn how to drive. She wa an excellentseamstress, cook, immaculate in everyting, member of Mt. Houston Baptist Church until moving to Lufkin in Oct. 1979. She bought a new mobile home which was set up on land owned by daughter, Clarice. She had always hope to move back to Lufkin area.

      She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother andfriend to many.
