Born April 14, 1922, Mary Evelyn Craig married Windle Adcox in 1941. The Adcox's farmed in Arkansas, Jefferson and Lonoke counties until the late 1980s. An avid outdoorsman, Mrs. Adcox enjoyed a lifelong love of fishing. Only three months ago, she could be spotted on Lake Willisten in Maumelle on her scooter retro fitted to hold fishing poles and a tackle box hauling in a 10 lb. catfish. In her spare time, Mrs. Adcox made pillows for the patients at Arkansas Children's Hospital. This fine woman was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. Her family was blessed to have had the wisdom, knowledge and understanding acquired during her long life, passed on to them. We can only aspire to be of the same high quality as she. Services will at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014 at Roller England Funeral Home. Visitation will be one hour prior to services.
