Jemima Jenkins Milhorn

November 17, 1925 ~ October 14, 2018 (age 92)
Jemima Jenkins Milhorn, 92, was born on November 17, 1925 in Ft Myers , FL and shortly after, her family moved to Johnson City, TN . She spent the remainder of her life as an East Tennessean. Jemima was the second of four children born to Robert "RO" Jenkins and Pauline Connor Jenkins. Her father served as the President of Pet Milk until his retirement. His legacy lived on as Jemima often referred to herself as "The Milk Man's Daughter." If you know Jemima, you would agree that her sweet personality could light up any room. Her best friend and husband Glenn noticed this at their first meeting at Rock Creek Park. He loved to recall how they first met and the beautiful courtship they shared. They were married in Johnson City, TN at Central Baptist Church on June 6, 1945. This same day, Jemima graduated from East TN State University with a Bachelor of Science. To say they had a successful marriage couldn't begin to describe the intense closeness shared between these two. Their love grew stronger and more beautiful throughout their 69 years of marriage.

Jemima had a heart of selfless love for her family and that was revealed in every decision throughout her life. As the second born in a family of four children, Jemima deeply loved the time spent with her large family. After marrying Glenn, He and Jemima started a family that would grow to reflect the legacy of love we continue to share today. Years of Sunday's spent in Johnson City eating Pet Ice Cream will forever be cherished memories for generations of Jenkins and Milhorn's.
