Nancy Alice Porter Adams, 79, of Savannah, Georgia, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on August 3, 2020. Born in Savannah on December 7, 1940, she was the only daughter born to Marion McNeil Porter, Sr. and Alice Marion Dudley Porter. Nancy was special. She radiated warmth and friendship to everyone she met. To meet her was to love her!  She was preceded in death by her parents and her beloved husband, Robert Shuler Adams, “Bob”. Her brother, Marion McNeil Porter, Jr, his wife, Billie Marsh Porter and her brother Robert Shig Porter (Barbara). Nancy’s surviving brothers are George David Porter, Sr. (Angie) and John Thomas Dudley (Janice). Nancy is also survived by her daughter Amy Alyson Adams Amory (Ben). Alyson and Ben blessed Nancy with two precious grandsons, William Shuler Amory and Matthew Wilson Amory, who were the joy of her life Nancy and Alyson had a wonderful loving relationship and Alyson cared for Nancy in a way that a Mother could only wish for. Nancy was blessed with Bob’s children: Therese Adams Coleman; Greg Adams (Faye); Andrea Adams Wilson (Joey); and Chris Adams. They became part of Nancy’s family and she loved them as they loved her. Nancy leaves behind 9 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren and several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. They all had a special place in her heart. She graduated from Savannah High School and worked for Southern Motors for 46 years as the Finance Manager. Nancy retired from Southern Motors in 2011 at the age of 71. The Kaminsky’s and Nancy had a special family like bond.  A void exists in our hearts by Nancy’s passing.

There are no words to truly express the loss of Aunt Nancy. To know her was to have laughed with her, understood her bond to family, and most of all loved her! She never met a stranger. Any conversation started with Nancy meant you started a friendship! She loved to share her knowledge of Old Savannah and more over her family stories. The greatest gift she gave everyone she met was her time and attention. I’m positive she is filling in her husband, siblings and parents with all the events and births they missed but that she got to witness first hand! You tell them we did GREAT Aunt Nancy, and that we miss them and now you sooo much!

Nancy was indeed a very special lady & friend. We worked together for 27 years. She was a hard & dedicated worker who was loved by all. She was a fighter in whatever she encountered in life. She loved her family and especially adored her daughter Alyson. Alyson, you have given your Mom all she ever wanted & stayed by her side. She has now joined your Dad in heaven. She will be missed but remain in our memories. My prayers for you & family. We loved her.

Alyson, your mother was so proud to be your Mama. She cherished every minute of loving you and raising you to be the woman you are. When you were little, nothing made her happier than to dress you up and show you to the world. My children remember the wonderful Hallowe'en and birthday parties that she planned so carefully for you. She will live on in all our memories as wonderful, sweet Nancy. Cheryl and Tom Bolton

My thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and her family. She was the nicest F&I mangers in Savannah. When I was green as a bank rep for Transouth and Capital One she really helped me understand the business and was honest in her approach. She was one of the greats in the automotive business.
