Barbara Jean “Jeanne” Adkins of Ashland, KY, age 70, died November 28, 2022, after a long illness. Jeanne was the widow of James Johnnie Adkins of Huntsville, AL.
Jeanne was born February 23, 1952, in Hamlin, WV to Edsel and Alma Hager. Jeanne was preceded in death by her mother, Alma Hager of Russellville, KY and her sister, Joy Ray of Lesage WV.

She was known by Jeanne to her friends, but her favorite name was what her grandchildren called her, MawMaw. Jeanne loved to travel and spend time with family and friends.
