Nevorah June Adams of Brookings, South Dakota died April 10, 2016 at the age of 93. Or, as she would have said, “ At 39 backwards”. Nevorah was born in Akron, Ohio August 16, 1922 to Ivan and Regina Martin. She attended Our Lady of the Elms High School. Her life long passion for dancing began as a young girl and placed her on many performing stages in her inspiring life. She was both Miss Columbus and Miss Ohio in approximately 1938. During World War II she worked in a defense airplane factory in California. She married the love of her love the late Col. Dwight Lee Adams on October 1, 1945 in Ft. Benning, GA. Upon moving to Brookings in 1963 with sons Jeff ( South Carolina), Greg ( Sioux Falls ), and Eric ( Fargo ) Nevorah opened The Brookings School of Dance on South Main. She would go on to serve the community both in dance, song, volunteerism, and worship until she moved to the Fargo area two years ago. She was preceded in death by her husband and parents. She will forever be remembered for her love of husband , family and her commitment to the Arts. Nevorah had a superb sense of humor and class. In one moment she could be the princess at a celebrity ball. In a very next moment she could be seen on Hobo Day walking the parade in dingy long johns, a goofy hat, and a tooth blackened out. She, with Dwight, was a long time member of Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church and is most certainly with her Lord Jesus Christ. The family invites the community to celebrate her life at Mt. Calvary on June 4th at 10:30. In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials to Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church.
