Josephine D. Jenkins (1953-2017) was a loving mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, neighbor, and friend to many. Sadly, Josephine passed on Friday, March 31, 2017 after a long illness.
Josephine’s family and my family were next door neighbors for decades. My youngest sister Odesell and Josephine’s oldest daughter Christina played together as children. Years later, Josephine served as a Girl Scout Troop Leader to their daughters Suriyah and Brianna! When Josephine moved to another area, I was saddened that she and my mom would no longer be next door neighbors.
Josephine shined her light in working with children as an Assistant Teacher, in her home, and in her community. I appreciated Josephine for being a wonderful neighbor to my mom. Josephine will be terribly missed.
