Adkins and they made their home in several locations, including Boston and Tidewater Virginia before moving to Talbot County.

In addition to being a superb golfer, Katie was a top brass bridge player and loved ballroom dancing. / Mrs. Adkins was a supporter of the Talbot County Humane Society. She owned standard poodles and later raised toy poodles. / Mrs. Adkins has no immediate survivors, but leaves numerous friends whom she touched. / Friends may pay their respects to Mrs. Adkins from 3 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Hurley and Ostrowski Funeral Home P.A., St. Michaels. / Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the historic Episcopal Church Cemetery in Irvington, Va. /
