Dorothy Ann Jenkins

Dorothy (Dot) Ann Jenkins, age 84, of Cartersville, Georgia, passed away on Sunday, June 27, 2021.

She was born in Cartersville, Georgia, on September 19, 1936, to the late Jesse Eugene Bearden Sr., and Naomi Flora McEver Bearden.

You are one of the luckiest people in the world if you knew Dot Jenkins, one of the most selfless women God ever created. So much could be said about her, but the list would be too long. She loved the Lord with all her heart, was a loving child, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She forgave easily, and was a dang good basketball player. She holds the record for the most points scored in one game at Cass High School to this day.

After she was gone, her husband rubbed her face and patted her hand and summed it up perfectly when he told her, “You are a good, good woman.”

Dot is preceded in death by her son, Daniel (Danny) Eugene Jenkins; great-granddaughter, Ella Chambley; brothers, Eugene Bearden, J. B. Bearden, and Billy Bearden.

She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Samuel Eugene (Gene) Jenkins; daughter, Rita (Jeff) Dixon; sons, Mitch (Yvonne) Jenkins, Randy (Holly) Jenkins; daughter-in-law, Belinda Jenkins; grandchildren, Jeffrey (Casey) Jenkins, Jonathan (Jenna) Jenkins, Dallas Jenkins, Trey Vice, Victoria (Jim) Stovall, Tyler Jenkins, Jaxon Jenkins, Natalie (Brandon) Chambley, Brookeanna (Daniel) Herring, Devin (Jordan) Jenkins, Naomi Dixon; great-grandchildren, Jaxston Jenkins, Carter Jenkins, Jett Jenkins, Cora Chambley, Wells Chambley, Dorie Herring, Lowery Herring, Claudia Jenkins, Dalton Jenkins, Jake Vice, Drew Vice, Ben Vice, Merritt Vice, Carson Stovall, Corbin Stovall; sister, Lucinda (Paul) Mathison; sister-in-law, Brenda Bearden.

A celebration of life service will be conducted at 11:00 am on Thursday, July 1, 2021, in the chapel of Owen Funeral Home with Dr. Eric Mathison, Darrell Bailey, and Kenny Jacobs officiating.
