Friday, February 16, 2018

Relatives and friends will gather to celebrate the 100th birthday of Hazel Adams on Friday, Feb. 23, at O’Charley’s on Hixson Pike. 

Ms. Adams was born to Lillian Love Jones and Ivory Jones, Sr. in Kensington, Ga. on Feb. 23, 1918.  She was the eldest of 10 children born to this union. 

Mrs. Adams was baptized at a young age and attended Pleasant Grove Baptist Church.  She exhibits her devout religious faith as a current member of Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church.  

Ms. Adams married and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio from 1940 until 1968. She moved to Chattanooga in 1968 where she continues to reside. 

As Ms. Adams approaches her eleventh decade, she is still an active and productive member of society, participating in various civic and community events, as her health permits. She attends the senior citizen program at Avondale Community Center.  

Ms. Adams provided outstanding dedication and service to the city of Chattanooga, working at the Orange Grove Center for 27 years, Siskin Hospital for two years, and as a foster grandparent for over 30 years, until her retirement at age 90.
