April 29, 1937 - November 21, 2017
Loretta Elsie Mayor Adams, age 80, of the Red Rock Road, Buckhannon, died at her home on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, under the care of her daughter and West Virginia Hospice. She was born on April 29, 1937, in Homestead, Pennsylvania, a daughter of the late Michael Joseph and Julia Lajos Mayor. She was preceded in death in 1989 by her husband, Anthony “Tony” F. Adams. She is survived by one daughter, Maria “MariJo” Adams, of Buckhannon; one son, Robert Joseph Price, Sr., of Buckhannon; two grandchildren: Nikayla Maria Adams-Lowther and Robert Joseph Price, Jr.; and half-sister June Solnik. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by one brother Eddie Mayor. Loretta Adams owned and operated the Prospector, a weekly classified ad publication, for over 40 years. She was the best example of what a mother, a wife, a grandmother, a friend, and child of God should ever be. She loved unconditionally and gave generously without wanting anything in return. Strangers were treated like family by her and were always welcomed into her home. She was a faithful Catholic and parishioner of Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Loretta was to many an angel on earth and now she will be our angel in heaven. The family will receive friends on Friday, November 24, 2017, from 12-2:00 PM and again from 4-6:00 PM, with a Prayer Service beginning at 4:00, at the Heavner & Cutright Funeral Chapel, 940 Route 20 South Road, Buckhannon, WV.

Joseph McLaughlin, S.M. as celebrant. Following the Mass, the body will be cremated.
