Sally Ann Adams

April 4, 1985 - December 9, 2021

Sally Ann Adams, 36, a resident of Cape Coral, FL passed away Thursday, December 9, 2021 in Cape Coral. She was born April 4, 1985 in Ft. Leonard Wood, MO.  She moved to Florida with her family in the mid-1990s.  On March 2, 2010 she joined the United States Army and moved to Colorado Springs, CO.  After an Honorable Medical Discharge and a difficult diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Sally moved back to Cape Coral, FL.  There she found relief from her physical pain from her MS.  The warm weather and the views of the Gulf of Mexico were of great comfort to her.

Sally was a strong believer of Christ and the Christian faith.  She would often be seen carrying her bible and hand-written prayers with her.  She was also a proud Veteran of the United States Army, where she served as a Quarter Master and Chemical Equipment Repair Specialist. She was formally trained as a cosmetologist by the Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy in Colorado.  This allowed her to explore her love of hair, make up, and fashion.

Sally loved the outdoors.  She spent time exploring the breath-taking vistas of Colorado Springs.  She enjoyed the Garden of the Gods, Helen Hunt Falls, and the America the Beautiful Park.  Upon returning to Florida she found peace in viewing the vastness of the water and feeling the breeze and warm sun on her skin.  Sally also took time to relax and go fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and local waterways of the Lee County Area.

Sally will forever be remembered for her loving and trusting heart, her giving nature, and her infectious smile.  She was a daughter, mother, wife, sister, aunt, and friend.  Her greatest joy in life were her two beautiful daughters.

Sally Ann Adams is survived by her beloved husband of 14 years, Ed Adams and their children Zoë and Lillie Adams of Cape Coral; loving mother, Joanne Connelly and stepfather Joe of Knoxville, TN; loving father, David Brinckman and stepmother Jamea of Clendenin, WV; as well as her five loving siblings, Nicholas Brinckman and sister-in-law Lauren of Annville, PA , Anastasia Carmen and brother-in-law Michael of Charleston, WV, Stephanie Brinckman of Chester, PA, and Kaylie and Connor Brinckman of Clendenin, WV.  Sally also left behind her eight nieces and nephews whom she adored.

No formal or public services planned at this time.

    Sally was everyone’s big sister in high school. I had a blast driving out to the beach, the mall, or whatever other adventures we could get into with Raye and whoever else was along for the ride. Lots of Britney Spears, lots of dancing and singing—never a dull moment. Sally was a ball of energy and laughs. My condolences for the whole family, as I know she will be missed greatly. Xoxo
