Burial in Buffalo Cemetery
Almetia Jenkins
June 17, 1934 – February 01, 2017
Almetia Jenkins was born June 17, 1934 in Wheeler, Texas to Frieda
and Lawrence Forrest.  She passed away February 1, 2017 in Denison,
Texas  at the age of 82 years 7 months and 14 days. 
She married Hansford Milton Jenkins on November. 28, 1953 at
 Lone Oak Baptist Church between Sweetwater and Sayre, Oklahoma. They
spent 63 years together, raising a family, working and traveling. They lived in
Texas, Wyoming, Michigan and Oklahoma, moving to Buncombe Creek when Hansford
retired from Shell Oil Company. While living in Gaylord, Mich. in the 1970s,
Almetia worked for Glen’s Markets.
Family meant everything to Almetia. A devoted mother, she was her
three children’s biggest fan, and her proud voice was easily detected in the
stands at their sporting and school events. In later years she was happiest
when surrounded by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She was a good cook, renowned for her chocolate pie and banana
pudding. She enjoyed fishing and held the family record for catching the
biggest fish. She loved camping and was always ready for a road trip, whether
by RV, motorcycle or car. Almetia also loved to watch western movies.
Almetia was known for her frankness, and those who knew and loved
her always knew where they stood with her. She did not mince words. She knew
her Bible, too.
She was preceded in death by her parents, a sister and a brother.
Besides her husband Hansford (Stubby), she is
survived by her children, Audie Jenkins of Sweetwater, Okla., Stacie Jenkins of
Kingston, Okla., and Kyle (Renee) Jenkins of Tuttle, Okla.; 18 adoring
grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.
