Beloved nurse to be laid to rest

The woman affactionately named Nurse Adams by members of her community will be laid to rest next week.

Wilhelmina Adams (82) who once lived in Keerom Street in Kleinvlei and later moved to Ghaap Street, was a pillar in her community who helped everyone with issues ranging from social concerns to food kitchens.

But that wasn’t all Nurse Adams did. She was also a ward councillor in her community.

But for Joseph Jansen, Adams was much more than a community worker. “She took me in when I was six months old. My parents, from Bredasdorp, couldn’t afford to take care of me so she took me as her own child and raised me till I was and adult. She had two children of her own but she took in me and other children and for that I will be forever thankful,” says Jansen.

Jansen jokingly tells how Adams was the first person in Keerom Street who had the privilege of owning a television and allowed people to come view there.

“She was also a great pioneer in church planting and helped with the establishment of the AFM Church in Eerste River in her garage at home. The church has now grown to a congregation of more than 1000 members,” says Jansen.

According to Jansen Adams was never really sick but because of her age she began to move slower and forgot things, but she still tried to help people till the end.

“Her remaining children and her family would like to thank every single person for everything they have done for her, big or small. It is truly valued and highly appreciated,” says Jansen.

The funeral service will be held on Saturday, 18 May at 09:00 at ENON Tabernacle Baptist Church in Kleinvlei, where Rev. Jacobus Nomdoe will preside over the service.
