Wanda Jean Adkins

December 22, 1943 — July 4, 2019

Wanda "Jean" Adkins, of Packs Branch, gained her heavenly wings on Thursday, July 4, 2019. Jean was a wonderful woman who was loved, is missed, and will always be cherished. Jean was an amazing wife, mom, mama and friend. She always had a smile on her face and loved to cook and bake for her family and friends. She was a kind person with a giving heart. She was of the Baptist faith and enjoyed watching the Good News Hour.

Jean was born on December 22, 1943, in Stonecliff, WV. She was the daughter of the late George and Louise O'Neal Ruff. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Tracy Adkins, her children Lavanda Painter of Packs Branch, Louisia Mason and Brad of Packs Branch, Arbutus Nolasco and Mario of Texas; her grandchildren, Robert, Bethany, Latrishia, Felishia, Nidia, Aydin, and William; great-grandchildren Savannah, Xzenia, Addyson, Willie and Adryell; step grandchildren, Beth, Jason, and Juanita; her sister, Evelyn Foster and Carmet and brother, Eric Ruff.

Her grandchildren were her heart and joy. There was no denying that she loved them the most and time spent with her was very special to them.
