Vicki Sonya Akins Staggs, age 69, passed away on October 13th, 2021 in Lewisburg, Tennessee. She was born on June 28th, 1952 to the late Willard Dan Akins and Rosa Bell Himes Akins in Five Points, Tennessee.
Vicki had a huge heart for others. She treated everyone like they were her children. She cherished all the times she got to spend with her 14 nieces and nephews she treated as her own children.
Vicki admired the beauty of flowers and planted a beautiful garden wherever she could. When it's blooming season, you could find her in her garden admiring her lilies and irises, proudly observing the fruits of her labor. When she wasn’t tending to her flowers, you could find her cuddling up with her favorite romance novels.
Vicki has touched so many lives in unthinkable ways and has left a mark on everyone’s heart. She will be so deeply missed.
