She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Leslie Adkins, Leonard Adkins, Harold Adkins, and Bobby Jean; sisters, Bertha Sanders, Kathy Adkins, Cindy Orozco, Evelyn Adkins, Ruth Marie and Wanda Lee; grandson, Ryan Adams. Mary was known to most as Grandma or Mary. She was a devoted Christian woman who passed on the word of God to her family and even complete strangers. She never missed an opportunity to pray for whoever needed it or give someone a message from God. She made sure to instill in her children, grandchildren, friends, and strangers to always have faith and to lean on God. Mary was the family rock. Mary Loved spending time with her family, children, grandchildren and her sisters, spreading the word and love of God. She enjoyed working on her home and her beautiful yard. She loved her flowers, or as she would tell you, "God's flowers". Mary would want her family to be strong, keep your faith lean on God and stay together. Mary loved her kids, grandkids and family dearly. She never had to say it, she showed it every day to each and every one of us. P.S. I love you all, Take care of Cubby. - Grandma
