Sharline Delight Adams

Sharline Delight Adams passed away on June 15, 2024, at the age of 96. Born on February 21, 1928, in Windsor, Colorado, Sharline moved to Washington state in 1930. Her faith was central to her life; she was baptized into the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in 1942 and remained an active member throughout her life.

Sharline graduated from Auburn Adventist Academy in 1945, and at her passing, she was the oldest living alumna. In 1952, she met George Adams, and they married in 1954, sharing over three decades together. Sharline worked as a bookkeeper in Walla Walla and Shelton, known for her precision and dedication.

She and George had four children: Mark, Tim, Jennie, and Molly. They also welcomed two additional daughters, Autumn and Linda, into their home. Sharline loved living in the countryside, where she enjoyed gardening, raising animals, and making homemade bread.

Her greatest joy was being a mother, and she instilled values of hard work, healthy living, and compassion in her children. Sharline's commitment to helping others was evident in her actions, offering financial support, a listening ear, and words of encouragement to those in need. Her home was a sanctuary for many, and she was known for her kindness and generosity.

Sharline's later years were dedicated to her Card Ministry, where she sent out over three dozen cards weekly to uplift others.

Sharline is survived by her children: Mark Adams (Fran), Tim Adams (April), Jennifer Murphy (Mike), Molly Keough (John), and Linda Lake (Aaron); her grandchildren: Alexis, Michael, Lianne, Cody, Quinci, Jazmin, Jack, Justin, Joni and Louise; and several great-grandchildren.

A service to celebrate Sharline's life will be held on June 30, 2024, at 2 PM at the Shelton Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 210 W Shelton Valley Rd, Shelton, WA 98584. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Project Patch at

Sharline's unwavering faith, boundless love for family, and passion for helping others will continue to inspire us all.
