Mrs. Barbara Jean (Reedy) Atkins, age 82 of Hiawassee, Georgia and formerly of Palatka, passed away Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at Brasstown Manor after an extended illness. Barbara was born August 5, 1936 to the late Mr. George Kent and Carrie Delora (Howard) Reedy in Harlan, Kentucky. She was a member of Christ Independent Methodist Church. Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, one brother George Kent Ready Jr., her father and mother-in-law, John Presley and Willie Florence Atkins, and sister-in-law Martha Jane (Atkins) Sargent. She was survived by her loving husband of 61 years, Boyd Atkins; son John Boyd Atkins Jr; daughter Brenda Kay Atkins; grandchildren Carly Elizabeth (Atkins) Binkley and husband Adam, Lindsay Myers Atkins, Boyd Atkins Shiver, Sydney Myers Shiver; sisters Rosemary (Reedy) Mahlkuch and Linda (Reedy) McCord McNiemeyer. Barbara’s family was her most cherished gift. She and Boyd made certain the Christian faith and core values instilled in them as children were passed on to their children. Barbara enjoyed entertaining family and friends in their mountain home in Hiawassee, Georgia, through the years, and always ensured there was enough food prepared for the next family member or friend who may arrive. Barbara enjoyed playing bridge, reading, dancing, gardening and cooking out with family and friends.
A memorial service celebrating Barbara’s life will be held at 4:00 pm, Tuesday, June 18th at Christ Independent Methodist Church with Rev. Amos Price officiating. Following the memorial service, the family will receive friends in the Fellowship Hall at the church. The family gratefully accepts flowers, or in lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Christ Independent Methodist Church, 4078 Silver Lake Drive, Palatka, Florida, 32177, designated for the youth group fund.
Memories and condolences may be expressed to the family at Barbara’s Book of Memories page at .
Arrangements are under the direction of Johnson-Overturf Funeral Home in Palatka.
