Mary Beaton Jenkins Henderson
Birth: May 2, 1908
Glasgow City, Scotland
Death: Jan. 17, 1991
Mahoning County
Ohio, USA

Wife of John Cassell Henderson Mary came to America after WWII from London England. Sailed to America on the SS JOhn Erickson during Nov 1946. Born in Glasgow Scotland, daughter of William Russell Jenkins and Annabella Cumming.
She married in Decenber 1946 at Chapel of Friendly Bells in Youngstown Ohio to John. Had her first child at age 40. She left a daughter and one grandaughter . She was survived by one sister Annabelle Jackson of Glasgow Scotland. A sister Margaret Murray preceded her in death and a brother Willie Jenkins died about 1968 in Australia or South Africa as believed.

Mary was an excellent seamstress, made her own clothes and daughter's clothes for years. She like to garden and learned to drive about 1958 through driving school classes. Failed her test several times, a cautious driver she was. In 1965 she became known as "Mustang Mary" as she purchased a new Mustang convertible, yellow with beight top and drove it for years. She had a very quick to wit sense of British style humor, and could be very sarcastic at times. She liked a "good cup of tea" steeped in a pot and served on a silver tray.

To my mother...
"She calls to me from long ago; through sunlit skies; through drifts of snow. In clouds that dance upon the sea, I call to her, and she to me.

So real was she. She laughed; she cried. She loved; she lost. She lived; she died. She hoped and dreamed; so real was she. She lived a life that I may be.

The blood through which my veins does flow is the same as her's from long ago. So it will be that when I'm gone in an unborn child it will flow on.

I'll live my life and when it's done I'll live again in those to come. For I'm a bridge from she to me; from those that were, to those to be."

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the sun. A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill and a time to heal ... a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to...(Read more)
