Sara Adams Obituary


Mrs. Sara Elizabeth “Chunk” Horne Adams, 79, of Jonesville, SC went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, January 8, 2023, at Spartanburg Regional Hospice Home, surrounded by family. She was born in Union, SC on June 13, 1943 to the late Ottis and Mittie Horne Horne.

Mrs. Adams was the greatest mother, nanny, and friend. She impacted many lives and helped take care of many people. She loved the Lord and her family more than anything. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her heart and she kept them all when they were small. She taught them many things, but the most important were to love wholehearted, be kind, help others, and love God. Mrs. Adams also cared for other members of her family, and never left them without saying “I love you with all my heart”. She was kind hearted and had a very selfless nature. She was a member of Fairforest Baptist Church and served in the nursery, as well as on the host committee. She retired from Milliken Gillespie Plant in 1992.

She is survived by daughters, Dora Palka and fiancé, Joe McCoy, of Jonesville, SC, Tammy Pridemore and husband, Rickey, of Union, SC, and Ann Faucett and husband, Robbie, of Spartanburg, SC; sister, Jerline Burnett and husband, Harold, of Florida, and Patricia Harmon, whom she thought of as a sister; seven grandchildren, Nicole Tyler and husband, T.J., Timothy Adams and wife, Amanda, Megan and Claire Pridemore, Madison Grace, Sara Caroline, and Adams Robert Faucett; six great-grandchildren, Madelyn and Gabriel Tyler, Sara Belle Adams, Paizleigh Horne, Kaylie Starnes, and C.J.
