Gwendolyn C. Brackin, 76, entered her heavenly home early Friday morning June 26, 2020.
Gwen was a member of First Baptist Church of Town Creek. She was a secretary at many businesses until she found a home at Town Creek Carpet where she retired. She was the church financial secretary at First Baptist Church, The Muscle Shoals Baptist Association’s Vacation Bible School coordinator, and spent countless hours working on VBS material. She was a wedding planner before that was a term. When Gwen planned and decorated a shower everyone followed orders. She loved her family and when tragedy struck she took Mama Gee to a new level by helping raise her grandson who lost his mother at 18 months old.
She was preceded in death by her parents J. H. and Wilene Crisler; a brother Hiram Crisler Sr.; a sister Janell Crisler Smith; and the love of her life, her husband Billy Jack Brackin.
Survivors include her son Jackie Brackin (Amy); a sister Linda Rodgers; grandson Jade Brackin; granddaughter Marley Brackin; step-grandsons Todd Crumpton (Darbi) Kyle Crumpton; great grandchildren Jett, Memphis; step-grandchildren Jailyn, Cash, Carter, Brees and Maddox.
Visitation was Sunday, June 28 from 12-2 p.m. followed by a service for the family at Jackson Memory Funeral Home Chapel with Mickey Brackin officiating. Burial was in Elmwood Cemetery.
Pallbearers were Jay Brackin, Greg Brackin, Chris Kerby, Coy Kerby, Stevie Kerby, Charles Kitchens, Ethan Kitchens, Bob Montgomery.
