Obituary

Leatrice Lenora (Crandall) Jenkins, was born on October 29, 1938, the daughter of Huber and Louise Crandall, in Milltown, Indiana. 

She passed away on October 12, 2021, at the age of 82, at Nortons Hospital, with family by her side.

Leatrice (Leah) was proceeded in death by her husband Jack Jenkins, father Huber, mother Louise, sisters Ruth Elrod and Martha Rightley.

Her spirit lives on through  her sons Michael (Christy) Jenkins and Bryant, daughter  Beth (Richard) Searl,  grandsons Wesley (Jenifer) Jenkins, Ryan Searl, Robert Searl and one granddaughter Marlea (Kaleb) Lay, and three great grandchildren, brother Roger (Jo) Crandall, many dear family members, friends and neighbors.   

Leah  received a nursing degree from Baptist Hospital and a degree in Occupational Health from the University of Louisville.  She worked as nurse in a Doctor's office, hospitals and a nursing home.  She also taught Nursing Assistance at a community college. She felt her work there as a teacher was the most rewarding, as she was able to influence and improve the lives of young intercity women. Later in life she worked as a Nurse Case Manager for several insurance companies and an in-home care company.

Leah  treasured spending time with her family and friends.
