Audell M. (Cole) Adams, 81, formerly of Harrisburg and Camp Hill, passed away Thursday, January 4, 2018 at Masonic Village, Elizabethtown.

Born January 12, 1936 in Harrisburg, she was the daughter of the late Vance and Ella (Jameson) Cole and was also preceded in death by her beloved husband, John E. Adams, Jr., who passed away in 2016 after 61 years of marriage.

Audell always put her faith first and was very active in the church throughout her life. She was a former member of the Camp Hill United Methodist Church, and was currently a member of Sell Chapel at Masonic Village. She loved to sing in the choirs of both churches.

Hopkins (and her husband, Steven), Harrisburg; one brother:  Samuel Cole (and his wife, Frances), Halifax; and 3 grandchildren:  Jonathan Hopkins, Lauren Williams (and her husband, Nathan) and Meagan Hare (and her husband, Jeffrey); and many other family members and dear friends.
