  7. Family may you find peace and comfort in knowing that Mom, Eloise Jenkins, is now resting in the arms of the almighty. She was a great example of God’s love for all mankind. Personally, she was God sent in helping me when I served as the Mt. Hermon Usher Board President for 7 years. I would not have made it had it not been for her encouragement and direction. Missing her dearly.


    Those of us who have the privilege of knowing “Ma” Jenkins, are richly blessed. Ma Jenkins was a loving, caring, compassionate and a spirit-filled person. She always made you feel special. We are blessed to have her in our lives for so many years and we will emulate the life she lived. Love to her entire family.
