Jenkins Reunion Held
The remaining children of the late Lee and Mavie (Applegate) Jenkins held their annual reunion at Pauline Richards big red shed this year. It is always on the Saturday before Memorial Day. There are four left and four are deceased. We had a good turnout. It rained a little before noon, but got really pretty later. We all went to the Jenkins Cemetery to decorate our loved ones graves. Those attending were Oliver Lee and Liz Jenkins, Randy Jenkins from Seymour, LeAnn (Haas) Grabel of Oklahoma, Pauline Richards, Danny and Beth Maloney of Sparta, Matt and Phoenix Maloney of Forsyth, Holly and Trent Tubbs of Springfield, Brenda Maloney from Branson, Donnie Sanders from Claremore, Oklahoma, Paula Kay and husband David Brigance of Mount Vernon, Marion (Jenkins) Morrow, daughter Shelly and John, Delana, Page and Morgan and Clayton of Springfield, Renee Goff of Branson, all daughters of the late Norman Jenkins, David Sanders and wife and five children, Ed Hall and Juanita Herrell of Ava, Pete and Sandra Jenkins of Fayetteville, Norma (Jenkins) Cross and son Kenny Hunt.
All four of the deceased had children at the reunion – Glen, Reatha, Norman and Georgia.
