Hebertine Jenkins Obituary

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
John 14:1-3

Herbertine Jenkins was born in Monroe, Louisiana, on September 4, 1950, to the late Herbert and Christell Jenkins. She transitioned on Sunday, December 17, 2023, in the comfort of her home in Forest Hill, Texas.

In 1967, she moved to Houston and attended Phillis Wheatley High School. She later moved back to Monroe, Louisiana, where she attended Carroll High School.

At an early age, she accepted Christ and united with the Riverside Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend H. Y. Bell, later united with Free Gift under leadership of Reverend Rodney McFarland, Sr., where she remained until her health failed.

Herbertine was an encourager and a wonderful soul who enjoyed raising her children as well as other’s children. She enjoyed playing pool, dominoes, and cards, and was known as the Dominoe Queen.

She united in matrimony to Earnest David Jenkins, Sr., where two children were born, Melinda Smith and Earnest David Jenkins, Jr.

Her family that preceded her in death are her mother and father, Christell Sanford Jenkins and Herbert Jenkins, and sister, Carolyn D. Buckley.

She leaves to cherish her memories: one daughter and one son, Melinda Smith (Cedrick) and Earnest David Jenkins, Jr. (Levon); three sisters, Paulette Lewis (Ezard), Delana J. Fields, Linda Ross (Greg); one brother, John Louis Jenkins; eight grandchildren, Nyeshia Daniels of Monroe, Mulayshia Mitchell of Arlington, TX, Cohath Washington of Dallas, TX, Franklin Mitchell, Jr., of Denton, TX, Quintaria Mitchell of Dallas, TX, Quintarius Mitchell of Terrell, TX, Corneluis Bursey of Dallas, TX, and Chris Washington of Dallas, TX; ten great-grandchildren, Tanner, Jace, India, Josiah, Saint, Xion, Queen, Quinleigh, Dakari, and Jamelia; best friend, Ruby Benard; friend, James Kelly; special loves, Rhyan Jackson and Dequalin Edwards; her puppy, Bailey; and an abundance of God-siblings, God-children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other friends, extended family, and the Greater Free Gift Family.
