Bonnie Sue (White) Jenkins was born Sept. 24, 1936 and left this earth on March 7, 2019. Bonnie was the daughter of Foster Marshal White and Bertha Marie (Sharp) White.

Preceding her in death besides her parents were her husband of 62 years, Roger, and siblings, Norma K. White, James M. White, and Mary Lee Hames.

Surviving Bonnie are her children, Rogina and Jeff Conroy of Washington Court House, Ohio and Josh and Elena Jenkins of Marietta, Georgia. She has two grandchildren -- Kyle Conroy-Barnum (Dan) and Brock Conroy.

Bonnie has four great-grandchildren, Bentley, Baylor, Beckett, and Bishop Barnum. Also surviving is her sister, Bertha L. White.

Bonnie was a 1954 graduate of Jackson High School. In 1996, Bonnie retired from the Jackson district headquarters of the Ohio State Highway Patrol where she served as a secretary for 12 years. Bonnie cherished her family time, her numerous travel experiences, cooking, sewing, reading, and playing the penny slots and bingo.

In 2016 she and Roger relocated from Jackson, Ohio to Cobb County, Georgia where she served as President of her local Resident Council. Though there are many fond memories, Bonnie will be remembered by those whom she leaves behind for her selflessness and unconditional love.

“What though the radiance that was once so bright

Be now forever taken from my sight

Though nothing can bring back the hour

Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower.

We will grieve not, rather find

Strength in what remains behind.”

--William Wordsworth
