I heard on Sunday afternoon that beloved local actress Mary Atkins died Saturday night. Scot McKim from the Theatre Within forwarded me the following information and asked me to share it here on my blog:
A memorial service will be held this Friday, November 6th. at 11:00 am at St. Lukes Methodist Church, on 86th St. just west of Meridian St. The family chose that location as it was close for family and friends and had a “dramatic” look, which they thought fit Mary’s personallity.
Rev. Scott Lakin will lead the service and a number of artists and friends associated with Mary Atkins, including Peggy Arbuckle, Bill Myers, Bill Simmons and Helen Whitelove have unofficially taken up the task of creating a short tribute that will be offered during her memorial.
