The Professor

A professor of Speech and Dramatics at Park College for over 30 years. In the summer, his family operated a theater in the barn next to their home. Rather that a traditional funeral service, his wife and family celebrated his life by sharing his favorite stories, poems, readings and songs performed by his four daughters, several grandchildren, friends and the college choir. Those that attended laughed, smiled and left knowing something new about Jenkin as a person, teacher, father, grandfather and the wonderful life that he had lived. Everyone was invited back to the farm for a reception.

This celebration was planned by his wife and four daughters and held in Parkville, MO.
