Ms. Eakin was a loving mother, grandmother, and sister. She grew up on her family’s farm and picked cotton as a child. As an adult, Ms. Eakin raised chickens with her children.

During a revival in West Texas in the 1940’s, she received the Holy Ghost when Carrie Eastridge was ministering. She was baptized in Jesus Name by Aaron Thames in Borger, Texas. Ms. Eakin was a longtime member of the Pentecostals of Alexandria. She will forever be missed by those that loved and knew her.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Ted Eakin; son, Dennis Reed; parents, Cleburne and Nola Mae McClellan; brothers, Herman, Junior, Abner, and Wade McClellan.
