April 26, 1957 — July 30, 2022

Karen Kathleen McCants Atkinson, 65, of Phenix City, AL formerly of Modesto, CA died peacefully on Saturday, July 30, 2022 with her husband by her side while at Columbus Specialty Hospital, Columbus, GA.
Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 AM (EST) on Friday, August 05, 2022 in the Chapel of Vance Brooks Funeral Home, Phenix City, AL with Rev. Troy Fripp officiating. Interment will follow in Ft. Mitchell National Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 10:00 AM till the funeral hour at the funeral home.
Mrs. Atkinson was born April 26, 1957, in Salinas, California daughter of the late Dale McCants and Eva Neff McCants. She enjoyed being with her husband and friends at the American Legion Post # 18, Opelika, AL and VFW Post # 5228, Smiths Station, AL. Mrs. Atkinson was a collector of antiques, even owing an antique store at one time. She loved to decorate her home in California and her seven Christmas trees with specialty Christmas ornaments she collected all year long. Mrs. Atkinson was also an artist who found great joy in creating special flower arrangements for her family and friends. After moving to Alabama a few years ago to be with family, she joined the Alabama “Roll Tide” fan club. She had a soft heart for all animals, especially her fur babies. She will be missed deeply, but every time we see a beautiful butterfly, we will remember her and how special she was to us.
Survivors include her husband of 42 years, Daniel “Dan” Atkinson, Phenix City, AL; a sister-in-law, Jannie Fripp; two brothers-in-law, Jimmy Atkinson and Marshal Atkinson (Beth); numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; her fur babies; and friends too numerous to name.
