Emma Adcock

1940 – 2021

Funeral services for Emma Josephine Fulton Adcock, 80,  were held on January 23 at the Ted Dickey West Funeral Home.

Mrs. Adcock died on  January 10, 2021, peacefully at home after battling cancer for more than six years. She was born on March 4, 1940, in Dardanelle, Arkansas, to Oma Leota George Fulton and William Lloyd Fulton. Most of her early years were spent in Little Rock, Arkansas. She graduated from Central High School in 1957 and attended Arkansas State University before her marriage in 1959 to her young Army officer and sweetheart, Jerry Wayne Adcock.

Being an Army wife meant frequent moves and so she held various jobs across her career. She was a church secretary, school secretary, and a school district administrative assistant. She worked in the contracts department for Tetra Pak for many years and ended her career as the Safety & Compliance Administrator for Jostens, Inc. in the Dallas area where she and Jerry ultimately settled after his retirement from the military. 

They enjoyed many happy years of full retirement in the Lake Fork community where they attended Lake Fork Baptist Church and were active in their neighborhood association. Mrs. Adcock enjoyed hosting wonderful gatherings of family and friends at their beautiful lakeside home, creating so many wonderful and lasting memories for everyone. 

Mrs. Adcock is survived by her loving husband; three children, Jeffry Adcock and wife Michelle, Jill Adcock Barclay and husband Bret, and Joy Adcock McHargue and husband Patrick; seven grandchildren, Christopher Adcock and wife Marissa, Garrett Adcock and wife Natalie, John Houston, Scott Houston  and wife Traci, Rachel Barclay Brachtenbach and husband Steve, Benjamin Barclay and wife Shannon, and Kaitlin McHargue Fedro and husband Evan; six great-grandchildren, Emery and Jackie Adcock, Lily and Thomas Houston, and Samuel and Hannah Brachtenbach; sister, Joy Dillahunty and husband Bud; and brother, Claude Fulton and wife Karen.
