Sept. 4, 1957 — Feb. 12, 2014

Sunny Rosalie Atkins, 56, died peacefully Feb. 12, 2014, with family and friends by her side. Survivors include her mother, Rosalie Long; husband, Rick Atkins; daughters, Delia Menching and Desiree Throckmorton; and five grandchildren, Julianna, Garrett, Daisy, Korbin and Jordan. Her father, Henry Gallagher, passed away three years ago.

Sunny spent her life in the pursuit of adventure. She was a single-engine tail dragger pilot who also enjoyed sky diving and scuba diving. She was an avid gardener and talented painter. She was known very well in the community through her work with El Dorado Builders Exchange, Youngdahl Consulting, Ace Hardware, Serra Industrial and Case Concrete, among others. She wrote a book entitled, “Is Your Man Good for Your Health?” that has sold on amazon.com. She helped run her husband Rick’s airplane restoration business, Ragtime Aero, and also ran her own business, Aerostop Seat locks. She was a beautiful and amazing woman who could do anything she set her mind to. Her bright smile and fascinating personality will be missed by many.

A service in Sunny’s honor will take place at Green Valley Community Church on March 7, at 1 p.m.

    I am saddened by the news. Sunny was a friend, a great work colleague, and an inspiration to me as a lady pilot. I will miss her. God bless you, Sunny. My prayers are with her family.
