Mrs. Adcock worked at Muscatatuck State Developmental Center from 1966 until her retirement in 1994. She then worked part-time at CVS Pharmacy until returning to MSDC part-time as a switchboard operator. Mrs. Adcock loved to sew and crochet, always patching holes in the clothes of kids who tore them up or hemming this or that. She also passed the time reading, often devouring several novels a week while listening to country music before bed or in the afternoon with a soap opera playing on the television in the background. Mrs. Adcock always appreciated a good meal whether that was going out to eat with friends and family or cooking you your favorite dish on your birthday. But Mrs. Adcock was most passionate about spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and loving on her pooch, Bella.
