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.
