Her family remembers her as a quiet woman of strength and grace, a caring mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend who could always be counted on to be there when needed. We will always picture her sitting peacefully crocheting and listening to southern gospel music. She is the bedrock of our family.
She is survived by husband Bennie Adkins of Opelika, AL., daughter Mary Ann Adkins Blake (David), sons Michael Adkins (Christine) and W. Keith Adkins (Jaime), brother Cecil Arington, and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and other family and friends.
She was preceded in death by sons: Dennis Adkins and Wayne Adkins.
