On Friday May 3, 2019 Barbara L. Jenkins, loving wife, mother and grandmother passed away at her home in Lancaster, Va. at the age of 71.

Barbara was born on January 7, 1948 in Washington D.C. to James and Joanne (Palmer) Lundquist. She graduated from Wakefield High School in Arlington Virginia in 1966. In the Fall of 1974 she was accepted at Howard University in the Dental Hygienist program. Barbara spent her years working, raising a family, volunteering, keeping foster babies, and maintaining an active role in her church. In 1990 she decided to go back to school and pursue her dream of becoming a nurse. Her hard work paid off and she became a Registered Nurse in 1995.

Barbara was preceded in death by her brother James “Jimmy” Lundquist; her sister Rebecca “Becky” Akscyn, and both her parents. She is survived by her husband, Lee Jenkins Jr.; her brother John Lundquist; her children Joanne Marshall, Tara Rose, Mike Holland, and Jason Holland; step children Amanda Scott, Amy Sinclair, Randall Jenkins ; nephew Robert Akscyn; nieces Melissa and Jenna Lundquist; her grandchildren Brandon, Alyssa, Justin, Lyndsay, Kaitlyn, Tyler, Mikey, Josh, Caleb, Alana, Alivia, James, Wallace, Holly, and 8 great grandchildren, the 9thto arrive in October.

Barbara was a truly kind person, giving of herself whenever and wherever she could. She was a devout Christian who not only lived by the Word but spread the Word as she traveled on many missionary trips. In her “spare” time she enjoyed reading, needlepoint, crocheting, and keeping up with her many grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at Currie Funeral Home in Kilmarnock on Tuesday May 7, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
