Ms. Nellie is also preceded in death by her Parents, Levi and Ella Jenkins; Sister, Kathleen Williams; Brother, Lloyd Jenkins; and Grandson, Larry James “Jamie” Reed
She leaves behind her Son, Larry Jenkins Reed; Daughter, Karen Sue (John Webb) Owenby; Granddaughter, Bridgett (Scott) Baird; and Great grandchildren, Jacob and Sydney Karjala, who will all miss her immensely.
Ms. Nellie will always be known for her sweet smile, homemade chocolate chip cookies, and her giving heart. She was the oldest member of New Era Baptist Church, and faithfully attended her monthly WMU meetings. When you didn’t find her reading or crocheting, you could always find her doing something within her community. She will be greatly missed by the lives she continuously touched.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to her caregivers for providing such great care to her in her last few months. They would specifically like to thank Sue Chance, Donna Lewis, Ashley, and Jawana for their love and hospitality
