Susan G. Adams, 63

February 27, 2018

Susan G. Adams (Bassi), 63, wife, mother, beloved Grammy, Certified Reflexologist, tole painter, crafter & loyal friend.
Susan “Sue” Adams, age 63, of Lititz, Pennsylvania, originally from Monrovia, California, died peacefully on February 27th 2018 surrounded by her dear family, including John B. Adams, her husband of 43 years. Sue was born in Monrovia, California, to Duane L. and Lois June Weller Bassi. The day Susie was born was the happiest day of their lives.
Susan graduated from Monrovia High School and had fond memories from her drill team days as a pep cat. Sue studied the arts at Citrus Community College and Brigham Young University. She met John in 1974 and quickly fell in love and was married in the Manti LDS Temple on October 1st. Sue’s most honorable calling in life was that of Mommy, with the first of four children born only 9 months after she and John wed. While her children were young, Sue was busy on the PTA/PTO. In her younger years, she was an Assistant Girl Scout Leader. She also served as a youth leader on many church assignments.
Susan had a huge heart and loved to serve her family and friends. She enjoyed helping her reflexology clients. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and an active member of the Lititz Ward. Susan was the best Grammy to her 9 grandchildren. She would host annual two week long “Grammy Camps” for her grandchildren. Grammy camps had a theme, song, scripture, activities, and days of learning together. The attention and memories Sue gave her family will forever bless their lives.
Susan found much joy in learning and teaching family history and indexing for the LDS Church. She found great satisfaction in her work doing this very important service. She was also a member of the Relief Society organization.
Susan is survived by her husband, John B. Adams, and their four children, Amy J. (Kevin) Gillman of West Jordan, Utah; Emily M. (Josh) Afutiti of Lititz, Pennsylvania; Amanda K. (Justin) Cracroft of Denver, Colorado; Brandon D. (Rachelle) Adams of Lititz, Pennsylvania; and nine grandchildren, Enoch, Caitlin, Micah, William, Ada, Isaac, Brinley, Kai, and Leo.
Susan had the best laugh that would make others laugh…
Susan loved her Savior, Jesus Christ and lived a faithful life representing His name.

A Celebration of Susan’s Life will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 10AM at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1136 Sunwood Lane, Lancaster, PA 17601.

Condolences to the Family

My heart goes out to each of you. I feel my dear cousin Susie was a “fighter”, just as her mother, my aunt Lois, was in her last days. I am so very sorry Susie was not able to win her battle. But, I have no doubt as to where she is now. And yes I agree, Heaven is a Brighter Place now, as some one had previously mentioned. Now Susie is with all her loved ones that left this life before her. I know she will be very dearly missed by so many that loved her. I am comforted by knowing of the happy and beautiful life Susie shared and with such a loving beautiful family.
I will always be so grateful to God that we were able to reconnect with Susie after many years not knowing where she was. It was always such a joy to chat with Susie by phone and such fun to email one another about our children and grandchildren. As sister Mary recalled, we shall both forever cherish memories of “our summer babysitting our sweet little cousin Susie”. She was our youngest cousin, making her extra special to us, and she was adorable! She so resembled Shirley Temple ( the darling of child actors back then ) She was like a little ray of sunshine to us all.
We all loved our sweet and beautiful cousin Susie. Though, I will always remaine saddened that we were not able to visit with one another. From reading what others say about our Susie, it seems as though she has always been able to “lift another up”. What a lovely gift that is.
My family sends love to each of you. And we have hopes of getting to know Susie’s family members a little better in time. May God Bless you all. I feel my son Michael took Susie’s hand when she entered Heaven, so it comforts me to know they have met.
Love, Prayers and Sympathy,
Cousin Evelyn Chase Mansfield

Such a sweet tribute. I’ll never forget your momma, she was always so kind and loving.  She makes me think of the picture of Christ surrounded by all the little children. Suffer the little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of god.  I couldn’t wait for her Granny Camp posts every year. So much love to all of your family. ❤️

With honor, love, and respect to my Sweet Friend Sue, 
You are one of the first people who taught me about unconditional love and feeling in my soul how to be Christ-like. I don’t remember many things, but I do remember how I feel when I am with you/your family.  I love you and learned how to love through you and your family, because you loved me unconditionally (whether I wanted you to or not).  
You made me laugh because you always made me tired just observing you.   You were always doing this and that and then some more of thit and thas….I even get mixed up thinking about it.  
The gifts you’ve shared with me are impossible to always recognize.  I believe the greatest gift you gave to me is through your children and your legacy.   An example of this is the peace that you gave us during your last few days.  The Spirit you shared was “not-possible-on-earth” strong.  Your peace gave me peace.  Your calm gave me calm.  So now when I think about you, it is with a smile rather than with sadness.  
It’s interesting to me when I sit and ponderize (even though we’re not supposed to use that word) how we all have taught different things in different ways to each other. Heavenly Father  knew what He was doing when he put all of us together there in Lancaster.  You, MamaSue, made our secular and spiritual worlds stronger.
I will promise you a couple of things:  (1) I will never attempt Grammy-camp nor will there ever be a Pammy-camp, and (2) I will do anything within my earthly powers for John and your kids.  I don’t think that they will call on me because they have each other, but when they do, I shall take care of them as you have unconditionally taken care of me.  I guess there is a (3) … I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to laugh at your husband’s stupid jokes.
Fly high and start putting in a good word for me,
Pam Roberts

I loved Sue dearly. She was the most loving and giving person. She made you want to be a better person. I am so blessed to call her my eternal friend and sister.  Kathie Singer

We send our love and wishes for peace and comfort to all the Adams’ family.  Sue was a positive influence in our lives – and we feel blessed to have been associated with her. She was one of the first to reach out to me when we were realigned into the Monrovia East Ward – and I will never forget her warmth and welcoming spirit. Heaven is a little brighter now!
