She is survived by her daughters, Sandy (Richard) Atkinson of Franklin, Virginia, and Beth (Scott) Joslin of Fletcher, North Carolina; grandchildren, Miller (Ashley) Atkinson, Jamie (Daniel) Hurley, Erin Joslin, and Colleen Joslin; and two great-grandchildren, Marshall and Madeline Rose Atkinson.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Tom, and daughter, Tracey.

Friend found her heaven on earth living at Holden Beach. For years, she served as a commissioner on the HB town council and was an active member of the HB chapel. She could often be seen zipping down OBW in her latest convertible. She welcomed any reason to gather with friends whether it was to enjoy a Duke game, a Derby race or simply to spend time with those she loved.

She had an avid love for all things dark blue, whether it be sports (Go DUKE!) or politics.

Sandy and family would like to thank the nurses and staff at Arbor Landing and Amedisys Hospice.

At her request, in lieu of a funeral or flowers, for those who don’t bleed blue, penance can be made by making a donation to a hospice of your choice in her memory. Go DUKE!
