Katina Offutt, 42, of St. Marys, Georgia, died Friday, July 10, 2015.
Tina, the daughter of Mr. Jerry Grimes and Mrs. Shelvy Leighty, was born on April 15, 1973, in Kokomo, Indiana. She worked at St. Marys Church for the past twelve years as church secretary. Tina was more than a good secretary-she was a friend, confidant, life of the party co-worker, adopted grandmother (Kiki), do anything that needed to be done kind of lady. Her smile was contagious and her compassion for people was real. More than that, her love for Christ, for her family and friends was genuine. You always knew where you stood with Tina and that was fine because you just couldn’t help but love her. She will be missed by her family, church family and friends more than words can say.
Tina was preceded in death by her step-father, Robert Lee Leighty. She is survived by her husband, Greg Offutt; daughter, Morgan Caleen Offutt; son, Gregory Robert Thomas Offutt; father, Mr. Jerry Grimes and mother, Mrs. Shelvy Leighty; sisters, Kim Duisson, Tamberly Cate, Debbie Smith, Carol Ann Willis, Nikkole Grimes and Vanessa Grimes; brothers, Richard Corbit, Toby Leighty, Bobby Leighty and Curt Grimes.
Services for Katina Offutt will be held in Indiana and the family will return to St. Marys to have a memorial service at St. Marys Church later in the week. Any contributions to the family or flowers for the service can be sent to St. Marys Church, 101 Pine Street, St. Marys, GA 31558.
