October 11, 1947 ~ December 8, 2020 (age 73)


Christine Kidwell, aged 73, went home to be with Jesus on December 8, 2020.  She lived with her husband of 49 years, Gary Ray Kidwell, in the Ferndale community.  She was loved by many, and adored by her family.  

Christine was born October 11, 1947, at Middlesboro Hospital, to parents John and Beatrice Adkins. She was the sixth of ten children.  Although she had worked several jobs in her lifetime, her greatest pride was being a homemaker and caring for her family. She was the epitome of a Proverbs 31 woman. There was no need that she did not try to fill.  There were no empty bellies in her home.  There was no tears she did not hug and kiss away.  She was sassy and spunky and her laugh was infectious. Most importantly, she was a believer in Christ.  For many years played guitar and sang in churches all around the area with different family members.  She often spoke of these times with joy and fondness.  She passed her love for Jesus and her musical abilities on to her children and grandchildren.  She was so proud of her family!  

Christine is proceeded in death by her parents, John and Beatrice Adkins.  Brothers, Dennis Adkins, Cecil Adkins, Carl Adkins and Roland Adkins.  Sisters, Bonnie Adkins Kinkaid and Eudena Adkins Phipps.  

She is survived by her loving husband, Gary Ray Kidwell.  Her daughter, Bonnie (Steve) Partin.  Her son, Gary (Kimberly) Kidwell.  Her grandchildren, Lauren Leach, Emily (Jonathon) Tuttle, Isaac (Kristina) Kidwell, Carlee Partin, and C.J. Partin.  Two great grandchildren, Harper and Tobias Leach. 

She is also survived by her brother Eddie (Judy) Adkins, and her sisters Barbara Hickox and Nancy (Jim) Collins, along with many, many nieces, nephews, and other family members and friends who loved her.

She will be missed more than she could have imagined.
