Lynda Barbara (Powers) Adams Obituary

Lynda Barbara Powers Adams died on May 6, 2024, at the age of 82. She was born on April 10, 1942, in Wharton, Texas. She passed away at her childhood home in Eagle Lake, Texas.


The oldest of three siblings, Lynda grew up in Eagle Lake. She graduated from Eagle Lake High School in 1960.


While in high school, she met Jerry Lynn Adams, whom she married in 1962. Jerry considered her to be the “love of his life.”


She attended Baylor University, participating in the nursing program. After marrying Jerry, she transferred to the University of Texas, where she then majored in education. Lynda managed to earn a hard-to-obtain teaching job in the highly competitive Austin market immediately upon graduating. She taught at an elementary school in Austin for approximately two years.



Lynda and Jerry settled in Galveston, Texas, in 1966, where they raised two children.


She was an active member, and eventual president, of the Junior League of Galveston. Lynda later went on to spend nearly a decade as the Dean of Students at Trinity Episcopal School, also on Galveston Isle.


She took great pride in managing her and Jerry's farmhouse in Round Top, as well as their cabins in Cloudcroft, New Mexico, and Ingram, Texas.


Lynda’s interests included playing the piano, travel (especially with her daughter Dana), and puttering around her Round Top gardens and grounds. No summation of Lynda’s life would be complete without mentioning her great love for animals, specifically dogs. Surely there were at least two, big, white Pyrenees (and Jerry) waiting for Lynda at the end of her final journey.


Lynda is survived in life by her sister, Suzanne Powers Seals and Suzanne’s children, Scott and Judd Seals, her brother, Gerald S. Powers and his life partner Greg Kyle, son James Christopher Adams of Round Top, Texas, and daughter, Dana Adams Pagano and her husband, Raymond Anthony Pagano, of Eagle Lake, Texas. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry, and her father and mother, Orville and Lauralynne Powers.


A marker is to be placed at Lakeside Cemetery in Eagle Lake, Texas. A small, private ceremony for close family will be held in Lynda’s honor.


Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Koenig-Belvill Funeral Home & Cremations, 208 W. Pearl St., La Grange, Texas. Family and friends can view and sign the guestbook online at www.lagrangefunerals.com.
