A Celebration of the Life of Lysbeth (Libby) Adkins, 72, of Goldsby was held July 5, 2023. Services were under the direction of the Wilson-Little Funeral Home in Purcell.
Mrs. Adkins passed away peacefully on June 29, 2023.
Lysbeth Gayle Baker was born on May 3, 1951 in Kansas City, Missouri, the oldest of four children born to Charles Frank Baker and Gayle (Young) Baker.
By 1961, the Baker family settled in Norman where she attended school. By chance she met a young man, while riding the school bus, named Scott Adkins. This was just the beginning of their love story. She graduated from Norman High School, Class of 1969 and attended OU for a couple of years after to further her education.
On October 3, 1971, the high school sweethearts became husband and wife. The rest, as they say, is history. Libby and Scott made their home in Goldsby, where together they raised three sons, Brandon, Brett, and Phillip.
On November 7, 1992, they purchased her namesake, Libby’s Café, in Goldsby and they continue to operate it today. Libby was driven and dedicated to working hard every single day whether it was at the café or at the family farm. Not only was she patient, but she was a great listener.
More than anything, Libby was a family woman. She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. They were her pride and joy, and she truly cherished every moment with them. Libby was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She will be dearly missed!
She is preceded in death by:her parents, Charles and Gayle Baker; father-in-law, Billy P. Adkins; nephew, Jeremiah Wolf and sister-in-law, Diana Baker.
