Mrs. Annie Ruth (Bell) Jenkins March 27, 1934 - April 6, 2011
Mrs. Annie Ruth (Bell) Jenkins was born on March 27, 1934, the youngest of 3 girls to Mr. William Bell and Cleo (Allen) Bell in McDonough, Georgia. Educated in public schools in Atlanta, GA she attended Booker T. Washington High School. Later, at the age of 75, Annie decided to continue her education by attending Warren Central High School day adult program. She truly was a Georgia peach. She met the love of her life, Moses Jenkins, while working at the To-Ma-To Tomato Plant in Atlanta, GA. Moses decided that Annie would be his Queen, so after a whirlwind courtship she married her King Mr. Moses Jenkins Sr. on April 8, 1949, 12 days after her 15th birthday. Mom would often say, “All I wanted was to be married and have a house full of children.” God granted her wish and to this union 8 children were born: first the four girls came and after much anxiety finally the first boy came and was followed by three more; Gloria Ann, Belinda Gayle, Brenda Joyce, Connie Denise, Moses Jr., Aaron, Joel, and Darius. Annie arrived in Indianapolis, her new hometown, on her 17th birthday and resided here for the next 60 years. Mrs. Jenkins united with King Solomon Baptist Church under the Pastoral care of Rev. Otis L. Nance. Mother Jenkins’ favorite scripture was Jeremiah 29:13 “And you will seek me and find me, when you search for me with all your heart.” According to the word, Ann was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost on Monday, June 4, 1962. Sis. Jenkins loved the Word of God and loved telling others about Jesus. She often gathered the neighborhood children along with her children and conducted Bible studies and Vacation Bible School in her home. On Sunday mornings you could find Mother Jenkins loading the family station wagon with her own children and children from the neighborhood to make a mad dash to Sunday School. While at King Solomon, Sis Jenkins faithfully served God in the capacity of Sunday School Teacher, choir member and missionary. After the demise of Pastor Nance, Mother Jenkins came to Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church September of 1983 under the leadership of Pastor Rev. Dr. Wayne T. Harris Sr. As a member of Mount Olive, Mother Jenkins was a faithful member of the Mass Choir and encouraged the hearts of many with her rendition of “Through It All”. Ms. Babe, as she was fondly called by many, was loved by all and was known as a community “Mother” in her beloved West Indianapolis “WI” Neighborhood where she resided for over 40 years. Annie Jenkins was a faithful worker and gained many lasting friendships during the 26 plus years she was employed by the US Postal Service. Shortly before her demise, Mother Jenkins and Dad Jenkins were honored with an “Indiana Healthy Marriage & Family Coalition, Inc. Longevity Award, which was a tribute to the 62 years she spent as Mrs. Moses Jenkins. Mother Jenkins’ one desire was to “live in the house of the Lord forever”. She went to her new residence April 6, 2011 to forever be with her Lord. She will be missed. Mom Jenkins was preceded in death by her parents William & Cleo Bell and her beloved daughter Belinda Gayle Gathright. She leaves to cherish her memory her beloved husband Moses Jenkins Sr., children: Gloria (Gerald) Grundy, Brenda Nichols, Connie (George) Powell, Moses Jr., (Geneelle), Aaron (Theresa), Joel (Sheila), Darius (Glendora); 22 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren; and a special cousin Charles Allen; and a host of special friends, loved ones, and her church family.
