Lottie Mae Adcock, 94, was received into Heaven on Nov. 15, 2012.
She lived the past six years in Urbandale, Iowa, to be near her children. She was formerly a longtime resident of Rogers, Ark., and with her husband, Samuel Adcock, worked in the ministry and established the Gospel Outreach Church and created a weekly Christian Fellowship program which aired on the Rogers Radio Network.
She is survived by her son, Larry and Jawonda (Holden) Alberty of Des Moines; two grandsons, Chip and Molly (Graham) Alberty of Des Moines, Jason and Julie (Cain) Alberty of Cedar Rapids; six great-grandchildren, Chase Alberty of Denver, Tiffany Alberty of Ames, Christopher Alberty of St. Paul, Sierra Alberty of Chicago, Felix and Oliver Alberty-Cain of Cedar Rapids.
Lottie was ordained into the ministry on February 1957 and became a traveling evangelist in the tri-state area of Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas. She was truly a "self-taught" Bible scholar.
While Lottie was born in Mississippi, she grew up in the hardscrabble and Dust Bowl area of Osage County in Oklahoma. The circumstances of her environment were instrumental in her growing up with a strong determination, a high sense of frugality, a high degree of self-reliance and an unwavering belief in her God Almighty. God bless her.
Services will be conducted at the Benton County Memorial Park Chapel at 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30, 2012. Viewing will be at the chapel prior to the service.
