Terri Lynn White Harkins


Terri Lynn White Harkins, age 65, of Clayton, Georgia passed away on April 23, 2020. 

Terri was born the daughter of the late John Neal White and Lillian Kelly White on September 15, 1954 in Gainesville, Georgia. In her professional life she worked for the Rabun County High School as an administrative assistant and bookkeeper.  Terri liked being outdoors and working in her yard. She enjoyed reading and collecting miniature figurines, but most of all she was a loving mother and grandmother. 

In addition to her parents, Terri was preceded in death by her husband, Dennis Clyde Harkins; one brother in law, Cleon Egbert Heard.

Her survivors include her three sons, Blaine Harkins, Brandon Harkins (Cheryl), and Britton Harkins (Katie), all of Clayton, Georgia; one brother, Steve White, of Travelers Rest, South Carolina; two sisters, Deborah Heard, of Franklin, North Carolina, Suzanne Parks, of Dahlonega, Georgia; seven grandchildren and one great grandchild on the way also survive her. 

In order to protect our community from the healthcare crisis that our nation is facing, the family will hold a private family service. A public memorial may be held at a later date.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations should be made in Terri’s memory to the charity of your choice. 

Beck Funeral Home, in Clayton, Georgia, is in charge of the arrangements. If there are any questions, please call 706-782-9599. An online Memorial Register Book is available at  www.beckfuneralhome.com.
