Diana Faye Adkins

Diana Faye Adkins, 60, of Oak Hill, died Aug. 16, 2013.

Diana was born on May 31, 1953, in Page, daughter of the late Faye Margalene Adkins and Carlos “Boy” Adkins.

She spent her youth in Page with four brothers and two sisters.

She was hard working and loving and was both a mother and father to her two daughters. She was a devoted mother, sister, grandmother, and friend.

Diana was an idol to her four grandchildren who miss her dearly. She was a beautiful painter, crafter, writer, and floral designer. She served her family and friends as a tutor, counselor, mentor, and the one who had all the right answers. Diana was strong when everyone else fell apart. She placed her family high upon a throne and spent her life serving for them. She will be sadly missed by all of her family and friends.

Surviving: children, Michelle Jones of Oak Hill, and Kelly Lester and her husband, Greg, of Beckley; grandchildren, Airman Apprentice Brandon Cody Jones, currently from Naval Station in Norfolk, Va., Tommy Jones, Alex Sheets, and Kiersten Sheets; brothers and sisters, Delorse Clay of Oak Hill, Carlos Adkins and his wife, Laura, of Kincaid, Jimmy Adkins of Kincaid, Houston Adkins and his wife, Judy, of North Carolina, Denise Nunnally of Georgia, and Anthony Adkins of Page; her sister by heart, Vicki Gillespie of Fayetteville; 12 nephews and seven nieces.

A memorial service will be held to celebrate the life of Diana Adkins at the Rose and Quesenberry Peace Chapel in Beckley on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 4 p.m. with Rev. Houston Adkins officiating. Friends may visit with the family 30 minutes before the memorial service at the funeral home.
