Lillian Washington Jenkins, left this troubled world on Friday, February 28th, at the age of 93. She was the daughter of the late Edwards Washington and Edith Johnson Washington. She was preceded in death by her husband John Jenkins and five sisters: Alma W Duncan, Mildred W Burke, Evelyn W Walker, Gertrude, W Christopher, and Irene W Barrett.
Lillian is survived by two sons: James A Golson of New York, NY, Rudy B Graham of Charleston, one grandson, Joshua B Alafia, one great grandson, Sankara, one brother, Herbert L Washington (Earlene) of New York, NY; one sister, Bernice W Green, of Teaneck, NJ and numerous members of the Washington, Bradford, Burke, Fields and Christopher families. Also, her best friend, Mrs Elizabeth King and other members of her Jehovah's witness family.
Sister Jenkins always spoke her mind, sometimes quite bluntly, but her heart was generous and kind. She had been a dedicated school teacher, and remained a faithful Jehovah's Witness until the end of her life.
No sobbing, no ceremony, no flowers or public displays of grief.
Loving thoughts and God speed to make that final journey brief.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Palmetto Cremation Society, 5638 N Rhett Ave, N Charleston, SC 29406
