Obituary: Paula Faye Adams Feb. 20, 1948 – Sept. 20, 2022

Paula Faye Adams, 74, passed away Tuesday, September 20, 2022, at Anna Kasman Hospice  Hospital in Albuquerque. 

Paula was married for a short time in her mid-twenties, and was blessed with a set of twin boys, Donald Adams who lives in Los Lunas, NM, and Dale Adams (deceased). They were often referred to as Chip and Dale by their friends and family. 

Born in Pocatello, ID, on February 20, 1948,  to Patsy and Dale Bolton(both deceased), Paula  had three siblings; her sisters, Pamela Inhoff, from Glendale, AZ, and Robi Lynn, residing in  Show Low, AZ; her brother, Richard Bolton, and his wife, Kathy Gursky, reside in Los  Alamos, NM.  Nieces and nephews include Wendi Wettin (Albuquerque, NM), Scott Wettin (Glendale, AZ), Tammi and Jeff Fredenburg, (Los Alamos, NM), Dustin and Regena Hults (Show Low, AZ), and Luke and Alice Hults (Edgewood, NM). 

Paula spent her life working in the computer industry as a Graphic Designer while raising her twin boys, as a single parent. 

Paula was a very talented and creative person with an extraordinary active imagination that she demonstrated in her craft.  Her passion was for beading where she created and designed beautiful jewelry and three-dimensional Christmas ornaments. Paula taught  beading for many years and wrote three bead pattern books. Later, she opened an online store, and for over twelve years people could purchase her renowned and phenomenal patterns. Paula’s name and designs have become commonplace worldwide among the beading world and she was featured in a beading magazine several times. Paula’s beading creations are where she shone like a bright star. They were all a product of her fabulous gift.  All are unique and special just like the wonderful woman who created them. 

Paula left her imprint in this world, and she will be greatly missed.
