Mrs. Jenkins loved her work and she did not like “half stepping” — that was her saying she wanted things done right, and if not, leave it alone. She was affectionately known by her grandchildren and friends as “Mama Rosie.”

Mrs. Jenkins leaves to cherish her memories to: sons, Robert L. (Sharrion) Jenkins of Georgetown, Texas, and Donald L. (Evelyn) Jenkins of Cedar Creek, Texas; daughters, Kathy R.

Robinson of New Orleans, and Eliza Mae Jefferson of Mary Ester, Fla.; a brother, Peter M. Bridges of St Paul, Minn.; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by eight brothers and seven sisters.

The visitation will be Wednesday, March 16, from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. at Crain and Sons Funeral Home of Bogalusa.

The funeral will be at noon Thursday, March 17, at Mt. Bethel Baptist Church. The Rev. Johnny Johnson Sr. will be officiating. Interment will be at the Bogalusa Cemetery.
