Obituary of Joyce Jenkins

Please share a memory of Joyce to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of Joyce Jenkins who passed away on November 23rd, 2023, surrounded by family. Joyce lived to the age of 74 and was known by all as a kind and caring woman. Most recently a resident of Saint Augustine, Florida, Joyce spent the majority of her life in New Jersey where she raised her son David and daughter Emily with husband Dave. She enjoyed cooking, shopping, and entertaining, but above all, she loved her family and friends. They loved to take trips to the beach and explore shops and restaurants where they would create memories that are now priceless. Joyce will be remembered as a saint by not only her family, but by all who had the blessing of knowing her.

Though we are saddened by her passing, we take comfort in knowing that she is at peace, reunited with those who passed before her; her husband David Jenkins Sr., her parents Thomas and Bertha Anderson, and her sister Carol Schmidhausler. It is now that we look to those, she leaves behind to carry on her memory. Her survivors include her son, David Jenkins III and his wife Christine. She is also survived by her daughter Emily Murphy, her husband Pat, and grandchildren Maddy and Patrick.
