Shirley Jean Jenkins
January 22, 1934 - November 13, 2023
Shirley and Vernon were members of Union Park Baptist Church in Des Moines for 37 years and most recently attenders at Calvary Baptist Church after moving to Cedar Rapids.
Shirley worked at Iowa Methodist Hospital for 3 years after graduation, then served her family and returned to work as a nurse after 20 years. She will be remembered for loving her family well, her faith, and her grace through the years of her husband's decline with dementia, the pandemic, and her own health challenges in her later years. Through the pandemic and her last years at the Rehabilitation Center of Lisbon she actively kept up with friends and family and world events with the use of her ipad and smartphone. She died November 13, 2023, just short of her 90th birthday.
