Norma Jean Adkins

February 24, 1935 ~ October 2, 2021 (age 86)


Norma Jean Adkins age 86 of Tipp City, Ohio passed away Saturday, October 2, 2021. She is preceded by her husband, Kenny of 52 years, sisters Janet Robinson and Sandy Bradley.  She is survived by her only daughter, Kimberly Jean (Adkins) Beckman, Son-in-Law, Mark Beckman, grandchildren Christopher and Kendra Beckman, and great-granddaughter, Denver Beckman. She is also survived by siblings Dave and Jenny Travis from Florida and Bonnie and Gaylord Cavender of Troy, Ohio.

Norma, resident of Tipp City for 62 years, well-known for her garage sales and Mum Festival parties, loved to have a house full of people, surrounded by love and laughter. She worked as a waitress for over 40 years at Sam and Ethel’s, Polly’s, Rohrer’s, and The Tea Room. Her years of hard work won her the Waitress of the Year Award, and many years of stories. Norma enjoyed playing bingo, various card games, and camping with her family. She loved to babysit her grandkids and take them on walks to the park and sit on her porch and watch the cars go by. Loved by many, there wasn’t a person that she didn’t know, a place she didn’t go where someone didn’t know her; she loved Tipp City. She lived a life that was happy and healthy, and always told her family and friends to follow three important things: to be happy, healthy, and have a good education. Loved by everyone, Norma will be dearly missed.
