JENKINS, ANN BORSKI (1935 ~ 2018) The following is an obituary for Ann Borski Jenkins, spouse of Robert Ashley Jenkins. The obituary was provided by Cook-Walden Funeral Home of Austin.
On August 1st, Ann B. Jenkins was called to heaven after several years of illness. Ann was born in Anderson Texas on March 10th 1935 to Victor and Cecilia Seigle Borski. She graduated from Anderson, Texas High School and then received her BS in Education from Sam Houston State University. She met the love of her life, Robert “Bob” Jenkins and they were married on July 16, 1960 and eventually made Georgetown, Texas their home.
Ann is survived by her children, William “Bill” Jenkins and wife Nancy of Cedar Park, Julie Jenkins Blaylock of Georgetown, and Felicia Jenkins Weaver of New Orleans; sisters, Jody Skrivanek of Bryan College Station and Wilma (Blondie) Carrell (Cornell) of Anderson, Texas; grandchildren, Ross Jenkins (Sara), Robert “Max” Jenkins (Abby), Regan Jenkins, Victoria Jenkins, Nicole Blaylock, and Ashley Blaylock; great granddaughter, Hadley Jenkins, and many other relatives.
She was preceded in death and will now be reunited with her parents Victor and Cecilia Borski, her step-mother Beatrice Borski (the only mother she really knew), her husband Robert Jenkins, her son Mark and several other relatives.
Ann taught school for 30 plus years in Georgetown and influenced many youth throughout her years. She and her husband were active in the community and enjoyed going to football games, volleyball games and several other school and community sponsored events.
Ann was a devout Catholic and was a very active member of St. Helen’s Catholic Church. She enjoyed volunteering and giving back to her church community that she loved. When it became too difficult to get to church, members would visit and bring church to her. Ann also volunteered at the Georgetown Hospital and at Handcrafts Unlimited and was an active member of Delta Kappa Gamma and enjoyed hosting meetings at her house.
Ann enjoyed cooking, sewing, gardening and anything pertaining to family. She attended and supported her grandchildren’s many sporting and dance events throughout the years and it saddened her when she could no longer do it. She loved to entertain and decorated her house for the different seasons and holidays. One of her grandchildren’s favorite memories was getting all of the boxes of decorations down from the attic after Thanksgiving and helping her decorate her house for Christmas.
Ann was loved by many and will be greatly missed by her family and friends. The family would like to thank Altus Hospice, Fairway Vista where she resided the last several years and the many wonderful care givers who became like family to her. They would also like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes throughout her illness.
There will be a Memorial Mass at St. Helen Catholic Church in Georgetown, Texas for relatives and close friends on Saturday, August 25th at 11:00 a.m.
Memorial donations in her name may be made to The National Stroke Association http://www.stroke.org/ways-give/donate or to a charity of your choice.
