Deborah “Deb” Susane (Saylor) Adams, 70, of Mercer, PA, went to be with the Lord on Monday, August 14, 2023, surrounded by her family. Deb was born on August 29, 1952, to the late Ralph and Betty Louise (Lyons) Saylor in Grove City, PA, and attended school in the Grove City Area School District. Deb is survived by her husband and the love of her life, Donald Ray Adams Sr., who she shared 55 wonderful years with. In addition to her husband, Deb is survived by four children; Rene (Steve) Casino; Marcie (Lonnie) Westover; Katina (Shawn) Walker; Donald (Shanna) Adams Jr.; eleven grandchildren; Brad Kinzel; Kendra (Tenger) Batjargal; Adrianna (Luke) Slater; Adam (Emma Maestle) Walker; Donald “Trey” (Liz Jeker) Adams III; Chance Westover; Aiden Westover; Brodee Westover; Ethan Adams; Alexandra “Lexie” Walker and Kirstin Adams; one sister; Jean Stull; four brothers; Thomas (Marsha) Saylor; Rod (Kathy) Saylor; Jerry (Cathy) Saylor; Vern (Lori) Saylor; one sister in law; Cathy Saylor; and two brothers in law; Lee Johnson; and Ronzel Adams. In addition to her parents, Deb was preceded in passing by two sisters; Barbara Bulfone; Cindy Johnson; and one brother; Jack Saylor. She worked for Pine Instrument Company in Grove City for 28 years until retirement. Deb was a steadfast Christian who was not only a faithful member of Pulaski Village Church but was constantly aspiring to live her life as a model child of God. Deb was devoted to her family and had limitless love and support for them, especially her grandchildren. She was a matriarch with many titles including: the keeper of holidays, the family chief, therapist, and birthday celebration specialist. She had a unique gift for making every member of her large, diverse family feel cherished and loved completely. Deb’s family also brought her the most joy in life. She especially cherished watching them enjoy her home cooking or attending her grandchildren’s events. Before she attended her children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events, Deb was one of the first women’s softball coaches in Mercer with her best friend Connie. She was always a classy woman in manner and dress, who enjoyed shopping for her perfect wardrobe with her daughters. Sunday lunches are a staple of the Adams house that will not be the same without her infectious laughter filling the home. When not spending time with her large progeny she always loved being home alone with her husband, enjoying each other’s company. She was an immensely strong woman who held her composure through many years while struggling with her health, never uttering a single complaint. Her legacy lives on with her growing family who will celebrate her light for generations to come. Deb will be extremely missed by everyone whose life she touched. Family and friends will be received on Thursday, August 17, 2023, from 3pm to 7pm at the Tower Presbyterian Church, 248 S. Broad St, Grove City, PA 16127. Another viewing will take place at the Tower Presbyterian Church, on Friday, August 18, 2023, from 10 to 11am. A funeral service will take place immediately following the visitation, beginning at 11:00am and officiated by Pastor Dan Hall, Pastor Marcia Grim, and Pastor Becky Rosengarth. Interment will take place at Findley Cemetery, Mercer County, PA. Memorial Contributions may be made in her name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by visiting www.stjude.org/donate.
