A Time To Be Born

Val Adams Devers was born March 4, 1944 in Marshall Texas to Willia Faye Adams and the late Carzie Adams, Sr.

A Time To Plant

Val dedicated herself to Christ at an early age and was baptized at Galilee Baptist Church of Marshall, Texas where Rev. Willie James Calvin was pastor. In 1973, she relocated to Dallas, Texas where she joined Golden Gate Baptist Church. After moving to Shreveport, Louisiana in 1978, she united with the Union Chapel Missionary Baptist Church of Waskom, Texas. She served as a Sunday School teacher, member of the Senior Choir, church clerk, Vacation Bible school teacher and participated in prayer and teacher’s meetings.  She remained a faithful and active member until her death.

A Time For Marriage

On July 29, 1967, Val Adams and Oscar J. Devers were united in holy matrimony in Marshall, Texas. This union was shared for 52 years.

A Time To Be Fruitful And Multiply

To this union, three beautiful daughters were born: Felica, Tefnie and Tamara. Three amazing grandchildren were a blessed addition to the family: Christian James (CJ), Valentina Marie and Zoey Christina.

A Time To Work

Val worked for C.H. Irion Elementary School in Benton, Louisiana; Southern University in Shreveport, Louisiana; General Electric in Dallas, Texas and retired from KWKH Radio in Shreveport, Louisiana in 2000.

A Time For Peace

On October 21, 2019, God gently plucked this choice soldier from the path of life and led Val to heaven. She is now at peace in the redemptive love of Christ with her mother, Willia Faye Adams and brothers, Kenneth Adams and Rickey Adams. Let your memories of her always be full of love and happiness.
