Martha S (Adkins) Husk

March 6, 1939 ~ May 28, 2020 (age 81)


Martha Sue Husk, 81, of Hawesville, went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 28, 2020. Martha was born on March 6, 1939 in Hawesville to the late Bluford and Josie Scifres Adkins.  In 2005 Martha suffered a major stroke. Through hard work and perseverance, she made nearly a full recovery. It was a testament to the work ethic she learned growing up on a small farm and being 1 of 7 children. 

Martha and her husband Reuben loved their children. They were committed to supporting them.   Martha spent countless hours making sure her children were able to participate in sports and other activities. She was proud that her efforts enabled all of her children to ultimately be college graduates.  In later years she enjoyed the 3G’s:  Grandchildren, Gardening and Gator Rides around the farm.   She was a member of Hawesville Baptist Church.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Reuben Husk and daughter, Tammy Sue Husk Miller; sisters, Murline McCaslin, Mary Jo Estes and Effie Powers; and brother Samuel Adkins; and stepgrandson, Robert "Luke" Harding.

Survivors include her sons Jeff (Tamara) Husk of Hawesville, Rick Husk of Mountain View, CA and Dennis (Lisa) Husk of Lewisport; five grandchildren, Morgan (Nathan) Jones, Meredith (Russ) Kreisle, Dylan Miller, Megan (Joe) Wiggins and Melanie Husk; four great-grandchildren Cooper Husk, Eva Kreisle, Amos Jones, Josie Jones; a stepgranddaughter, Jocelyn Curtis; five stepgreat-grandchildren, Ashley Little, Evan, Jakob and Cameron Harding and Jeffery Curtis; stepgreat-great-granddaughter Kiersten Little; sister Dolores Boling; brother Ray Adkins; and cousins, nieces and nephews.
