Please donate in loving memory of Wayne Meredith Jenkins.

Mr. Jenkins was born on July 31, 1943 to the late Alton Meredith Jenkins and Adelaide Bazemore Jenkins in Aulander, Bertie County, North Carolina. Having developed a love of the outdoors at an early age, Wayne had wonderful times at White Lake, boating and fishing at White’s Beach, hunting, and traveling through the mountain roads. He enjoyed nothing better than traipsing through the fields and forests of his family farm. Wayne graduated from Aulander High School and later Atlantic Christian College becoming a social worker in Bertie County. Always smiling, he never met a stranger and the impact on those he knew, served through his work or his church was significant. He was a skilled mechanic and carpenter who changed his own oil and constructed wheelchair ramps for the needy. A snappy dresser like his mother, it was in a coat and tie that he met his wife Norma at a dance in 1982. They were a pair for 39 wonderful years. He also loved his large extended family and looked forward to Christmas parties and other gatherings. Wayne was devoted to his church becoming a deacon and choir member. He will be remembered as a loving father, husband, brother, and grandfather.
