Kathy Jo Sexton Akin went to be with the Lord on Sunday December 5, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents, Thelma and Barney Sexton; her brother, Lee Sexton; and her late husband, Eddie Akin. She is survived by her brothers, Greg Sexton and Tim Sexton; her sons, Adam and Eric Wyatt; her daughter-in-law, Dana Wyatt; and her three granddaughters, Bethany, Kate, and Hannah. Kathy had many professional roles in her lifetime, but she was most proud of her role as mother and grandmother "Grammy". She was a well-known volunteer for the Riverbend Festival for many years, working in transportation for the festival artists. She loved music, and reading, and her dachshunds, Barney and Webster. She was kind, empathetic, and generous, and her family and friends will miss her greatly.
