Brooke Atkins, 36, of Charlotte passed away December 17, 2016. She was born October 11, 1980 in Durham. She had a compassionate heart, with a special love for children and her fur babies: Beau Duke, Lily, Clinique and numerous foster kittens.
Brooke loved talking to every person she met, making them feel comfortable, while feeding both their souls and their bodies. She had a natural flair for design and fashion, especially makeup that highlighted her natural beauty for all to see.
Brooke was a licensed esthetician; 2008 Belmont Abbey College graduate, and member of Alpha Sigma Pi sorority; and 1999 graduate of Grafton (VA) High School. She is survived by the love of her life Rich George of Charlotte; her mother Linda Thompson of Durham; and her father David Atkins (and wife Carolyn) and her step-sister Meghan Squires, of Carrboro.
The family will receive friends from 1-3 PM Thursday, December 22 at James Funeral Home of Huntersville, immediately followed by a memorial service at 3:00 PM.
