Jeanne R. Akers

Jeanne R. Akers, 83, of Greenbrier, passed away Wednesday, March 23, 2016.

She was born November 5, 1932 in Lake Stevens, Washington to the late John Finley Brown and Etta Clauson Strand.

Jeanne was also preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Charles C. Akers, great-grandchild, Chancellor Strack, two brothers, Bob Brown, and Harold Brown and two sister, Betty Adcock and Helen Munger.

Jeanne was a member of Life Song Baptist Church and retired from the State of Arkansas after many years of service. She enjoyed crocheting and loved fishing, bowling and square dancing with her husband and lifelong friends. Jeanne was known by her family and friends as "Gangy." She had a larger than life sense of humor and would make everyone laugh, even at their own expense. Gangy would always make you laugh when she made her bird mouth. Most of all she enjoyed living on the farm and watching over her family. Jeanne was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and friend to many and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
