ADAMS, Carina Is­abel Verdeguer Mar­ti­corena,

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - NATION & WORLD -

40, of Me­chan­icsville, Va., ended her coura­geous strug­gle on May 30, 2020. For three years, she valiantly fought bat­tle after bat­tle with cancer un­til it was fi­nally time to lay down her arms for good. It was a hard fight, and it was a painful fight, so she de­serves the rest she has earned.

She was a de­voted mother to her only son, Alexan­der, and ev­ery day that she fought was one more she could spend with him. She was an ar­chi­tect with Poole & Poole Ar­chi­tec­ture for 15 years, where she was pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing and de­sign­ing, as well as be­ing mis­chievous with her fel­low co-work­ers. Carina loved cho­co­late, she loved ap­ple pie, she loved to sing and she loved to do any­thing that al­lowed her cre­ativ­ity to flow. She had an in­fec­tious per­son­al­ity, and any­one who met her al­ways re­mem­bered her. Carina was born and raised in Lima, Peru, and was called La Rulis by her friends, be­cause of her beau­ti­ful long and curly hair.

She leaves be­hind her heart­bro­ken hus­band of 15 years, Phillip Adams; and her most pre­cious eight-yearold son, Alexan­der Adams. Her mother, Gilda Mar­ti­corena Quin­tero; and fa­ther, Car­los Verdeguer Her­rera, were by her side un­til she was fi­nally at peace. In Peru, she is grieved by her ma­ter­nal grand­mother, Ju­dith Quin­tero Or­denes; and her pa­ter­nal grand­par­ents, Jose Verdeguer Gar­boza and Car­men Her­rera Eyza­guirre. She will be missed im­mensely by her many cousins, aunts, un­cles and friends in Peru who were un­able to see her one last time; and step­fa­ther, Fer­nando Cas­tano in Con­necti­cut. Her in-laws, Fonda and Bill Adams; and three broth­ers-in­law (Will, Bran­don, Josh) lose the only daugh­ter and sis­ter they ever had. Phillip is for­ever grate­ful for his fam­ily and friends and their con­tin­ual sup­port pro­vided over the past three years, as well as her em­ployer Poole & Poole, who was al­ways there for her. Carina will be loved and missed al­ways. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).

A me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held later in the sum­mer.
