Barbara Ann Adkins of Lundale, WV Barbara Ann Adkins, 77, of Lundale, joined her husband in their Heavenly home on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, leaving from her residence, after a long illness. She was born on October 24, 1944, in Logan County, the daughter of the late Jimmy and Ella June (Sutherland) Adkins. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Elmer Adkins; her mother-in-law whom she loved as a mother, Ethel Kirk Adkins; one son, Michael Adkins; grandson, Darrell Lee Pierson; sisters, Ella Jean (Jack) Walls and Sandra (Harry) Albright; sister-in-law, LaVanna Davis; nephews, Roger Davis and Nevada Davis; and one niece, Mary Jane Davis. Barbara was a home maker. She enjoyed sewing and cooking and was very talented at both. Barbara will long be remembered for her chicken and dumplings, turkey and dressing, and her spaghetti. She had a generous way of spreading her love and hugs. Barbara adored spending time with her family and those she considered family. She accepted her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in 1976 and through God’s grace led her whole family to Christ. From that time forward, she maintained a Christian home. She was a founding member of Bethel Tabernacle where she faithfully attended until her illness. Although, Barbara was unable to attend church, she showed the love of Jesus to everyone who visited. She was truly the definition of a Proverbs 31 woman.
