Kathleen Akin Obituary

1930 - 2013
Kathleen Wynell Akin, 83, of Dallas, Texas went to be with her Lord on October 8, 2013. She was born August 31, 1930, in Bryan,Texas. Kathleen was first and foremost a beautiful Christian and a Prayer Warrior; she never stopped professing her love of her Lord and Savior and her Faith in God never once wavered. She spent her entire life educating. She attended Baylor University and Hardin-Simmons earning two Master's degrees in her lifetime, yet even after that she continued to study daily until her death. She taught school for 30 years; almost all of them were at Tivy High School in Kerrville, Texas. She considered her career, not a vocation, but a calling. She was the dedicated teacher whom students met if they were lucky early in their academic training, for she turned them on to the joy of learning and ever afterward their minds were responsive, they were insatiably curious, and they were diligent in their pursuit of knowledge. Language, Composition, and Literature were her fields of expertise. Her skill as an educator was highly recognized and her ability to kindle sparks of intellectuality was unquestioned. She was an organist as well as an educator and spent all of her Kerrville years playing for her church, Trinity Baptist Church, when she was not "awakening the minds of young men and women." Although she moved to Dallas after her retirement to be with her family and with Royal Lane Baptist Church in Dallas, her love she left behind in Kerrville will never be forgotten. The love she leaves behind now will never be forgotten as well. Kathleen loved music, writing, reading, and her quest of knowledge never stopped. The amazing love she felt for her family was unquestionable as well. She has left behind a legacy that will continue until the end of time. She is survived by three sibling, Mary Jane Ogden of Dallas, TX, Martha Hatcher of Dallas, TX, and Jimmie Akin of Bryan, TX; eight nephews and nieces; sixteen great-nephews and nieces, and five great-great nephews and nieces. She was preceded in death by her parents Manuel Akin and Virgie Batson Akin.

What a great lady and a true inspiration to so many of us who traveled the halls of Tivy High School. She always had the time for each and every student that knocked on her door. To her family, you
