Betty J. Jenkins

Betty J. Jenkins, 46, res­ident of Goffstown, NH, died unexpectedly of a heart attack on Sept. 23, 2016, at her home.

She was born in Morris­town, N.J., on Nov. 25, 1969, a daughter of Irwin and Margaret (Hol­man) Jenkins. She was raised and ed­ucated in Amherst, and graduated from MASH, Class of 1989 and then at­tended Fairwood Bible Institute in Dublin, NH.

Betty attended Milford First Baptist Church and worked at the A&P su­permarket while in high school and later worked at Shaw’s and Hitchiner Man­ufacturing Company, Mil­ford. For the past 8 years, Betty was employed as an LNA at Crestwood Health­care Center in Milford and greatly enjoyed spending time with her residents at the nursing home.

She enjoyed needlework, baking, bingo, and collect­ing Coke memorabilia, but her greatest love was being a mom for her son.

In addition to her par­ents of Amherst, family members include her son, Jeremiah Willey of Goffstown; a sister and brother-in-law, Jean and Robert Barton of Manchester; and several aunts, un­cles, and cousins.
