Annie Atkins, 97, of Clovis, NM went to be with the Lord on March 2, 2018 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born on August 5, 1920 in Shackelford County, TX to Frank and Anna Hromas. When she was 6 years old her family moved to Oklahoma Lane, TX. She married Harmon Atkins December 21, 1940.
Annie was a homemaker, and when she wasn’t busy raising her children, she would enjoy spending her time making quilts, doing needle work, crocheting, canning goods, and loved to bowl.
Preceding her in death are her parents, Frank and Anna Hromas; her husband, Harmon Atkins; daughter Ann Bullion; son, William Atkins; son-in-laws, Don Scherer and John Tillman; grandchildren, Steven Bullion and Alyssa Bullion Martinez; and one brother and sister.
