A Legacy Of Love

Encased within the bounds of unprecedented beauty and grace, empowered by a quiet yet unshakable strength, and held together by the threads of faith, joy and laughter, Doris Tyler Adams walked and lived among us. Her incredible life's journey and the way she exuded strength in all of life's situations, profoundly impacted all those who had the privilege of knowing her.
Doris Ann or "Dot" as she was affectionately called, was born on April 26, 1959, to Mrs. Rosa Lee Tyler and the late Mr. Latson M. Tyler. She was reared in Salley, SC and received her primary and secondary educationin the Aiken County Public Schools system. She graduated from Wagener-Salley High School in 1977. She attended Benedict College where she completed her course of study and became a certified Pharmaceutical Technician.
Upon graduation, she entered the workforce and labored diligently in various industries, including employment at the Savannah River Plant. However, she found her niche as a Correctional Officer at the Trenton Correctional Institute. During her time there, her exemplary work ethic was above and beyond what was expected. This dedication caused her to be acknowledged not only her superiors, but co-workers as well. Those entrusted to her as she carried out the duties of her job held her in the highest respect. The spirit of excellence and commitment which she brought to her job, gained her honored of "Officer of the Year" in 2007.
Understanding that "Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God," she used her uniquely sweet nature to always strive for peace among others. Doris was also tenacious and would not hesitate to stand up for herself. She never backed down from a challenge and if the situation warranted she would also come to the defense of others! In quiet and trusting peace with God, Doris began a courageous and determined fight against cancer i 2010. Enduring immense physical pain, she never once complained and always allowed the light of Christ to shine. Her life lesson to those she loved would be, " long suffering and patience are bitter, but they yield the sweetest of fruits." On May 3, 2015, God saw fit to bring His daughter, Doris Tyler Adams home. With His tender grace, He held her close and called an end to her earthly battle.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? (I Corinthians 15:55). Doris Tyler Adams won the battle of her faith for to be absent from her body is to be present with the Lord.
She shared the sweet fruit of her love with her late husband of 22 years Henry Edward Adams Jr. Those left to cherish the memory of her profound love are her mother: Rosa Lee Tyler of Salley, SC; her devoted son: Shonnell L. Adams of Aiken, SC; her sister: Veronica Quattlebaum of Salley, SC; mother-in-law: Gladys Robinson of Wagener, SC; two aunts: Jenneatte (Van) Hartwell of Swansea, SC, and Jeniva (James) Key of Aiken, SC; three uncles: Aiken Tyler of Columbia, SC, Donnie (Tierra) Tyler of Salley, SC, and Bill (Barbara) Tyler of Atlanta, GA; nine grandchildren: Desiree, Shakaayvai, Ja'Quan, Jayland, Shaisexton, Jabrill, Jairu', Jailayiah, and Lyric; special friends: Captain Yolanda Turner, Wanda Dunbar, Berlinda Pontoo-Brown, Arlinda Jenkins, Patricia Thomas, Brenda Stroman, Dlores Ligons, Rose Coates, Tiffany Smith, and ElJean Garrett; four nieces, five nephews, many loving cousins, and devoted friends.
