Jolyna Abernathy

Jolyna was tiny in stature, but huge in heart-felt compassion and love. She was a selfless wife, totally devoted to Randy, and always made him and his medical profession a priority. When Randy said, “Let’s go”, Jolyna was willing to drop what she was doing and pack. She loved going on road trips on their motorcycle (nothing beats sitting on the back of a bike, reading a book, dressed in Harley-Davidson Bling and chaps)! Jolyna was affectionately known as “my GiGi” to her grands, which alone tells you how extra-special they all feel. “GiGi” went just a little bit overboard in shopping for her little ones and doted on them when she willingly kept them. Of course, before the grands came along, there was their three children, plus Tyson! She enjoyed spoiling them by cooking their favorite meals, not only on holidays and birthdays, but anytime they asked. Fried chicken, pancakes, brownies, Rice Krispie treats, and who could forget Jolyna’s cheesy potato soup.
