Bertie Boucher Jenkins Norman, 83, died December 23, 2019. She was born December 9, 1936. Bertie’s happiest years were when she lived in Clarendon. She loved the river life. She often referred to it as God’s Country. Many mornings you would find her on her back porch reading her Bible, or watching the humming birds feed and the squirrels scampering across her back yard. She enjoyed a simple life and always found beauty not only in her surroundings, but also in the people she came in contact with. She never met a stranger and always said if you look long enough you can find some good in everybody. That is how she lived her live. She loved unconditionally and would help anyone she could. She enjoyed her Sundays at the Church of Christ in Clarendon.
Bertie was preceded in death by her father, Charley Samuel Boucher, her mother, Irene Walker, her first husband, Alfred “Bo” Jenkins, her second husband, Claude Norman and son, Donald Ray Jenkins. Survivors include her daughters, Margaret and Gary Walker of Shannon Hills, granddaughter, Kelly and Carson Slaughter of England, grandson, Donnie and Cerae Jenkins of Carlisle, Tyre Jenkins of Carlisle, Johnathan Jenkins of Stuttgart, and granddaughter Jessica Jenkins of Stuttgart. A private graveside service will be held at the Crisswell and Jenkins family cemetery in DeWitt.
