Judy Darlene (Adkins) Cottle, 63, of Fayetteville, WV is kicking up some gold dust in Heaven following a heroic battle with cancer. Judy lost her battle at home in the late hours of Sunday, February 11, 2018, surrounded by her loving husband of 39 years, children, grandchildren, 3 brothers and 4 sisters.
Born February 28, 1954, in Marianna, WV, Judy was the daughter of the late Everett Ray and Laura Maxine (McClure) Adkins.

Judy was a life long member of Lundale Freewill Baptist Church in Lundale, WV. Along with her sister and brothers, she founded the Faith Gospel Singers and sang at many area churches. She let her light shine and was a witness for God to anyone she encountered. For over 30 years, Judy was a court reporter for the WV Supreme Court and worked in Fayetteville, WV. She loved to camp, work crossword puzzles, spend time with her family, teach her granddaughters how to cook, and was a master of Farmville. Judy was an inspiration to many.
