✿Jenkins, Ruby Marie Bash✿ 133214626
b. Mar. 23, 1920 d. Jul. 23, 2014

She loved flowers. She made her own from crepe paper & decorated Jenkins family and other family graves of people who had died before she was born, as well as those she had known, until she began to buy artificial or real ones. She was still interested in growing flowers at 94.

Please leave some of your flowers with her.

Thank you.


Many obits I use are from my sister, Peggy Jenkins Kreiger, and our deceased mother, Ruby Bash Jenkins' obituary collection. The obituaries are used with their permission.

I also use photos my sister, Peggy has taken at cemeteries for me, they are also used with her permission. I also have photos from John Schehrer, Big John (#46634520) & Betty Saltenberger (#47066478), that I may use with their permission. Photos I have used from other Find A Grave members are used with their permission.

Please note:

The Profile Comments are not the place for questions about any of the MEMORIALS that I MANAGE.


For ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, LINKS or TRANSFERS for any Memorial, PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON and click on Suggest A Correction or provide additional information."


If you have genealogical questions I don't have a problem with being asked to help here or via email. I prefer an email. it's more private.

Just try to give me enough information to understand what you want to know, and possibly be able to research for an answer.

Please place Find A Grave in the Subject, so I can tell it's not spam and include the link to the other Memorial/Profile to be discussed.

I've helped a lot of people since I started genealogy in the early 1980's. I'm now 76.

RE: Downing tombstone photo
The photo of the stone matches all the dates and also the middle initial as well as the spouse DM Downing.
I guess I am confused, what is wrong.

Allie's headstone date is correct. The trees are incorrect. This error has been copied from tree to tree. I have read the obit from the Northwest Ark Times, published on 16 July 1971. Social Security Death Index also shows July 1971. I found no solid citation regarding Allie's death date on Ancestry; just Rootsweb family tree. That is not solid evidence. - dennis

Yes, Reed was a brother. Velma's father, Bryon, died 30 May 1973. He was buried in the Silent Grove Cemetery, Springdale, Arkansas. There are obituaries in the Northwest Ark Times for Bryon and Allie. Vonda Burch may still be alive. - dennis

You are welcome. I was looking up her mother for another site request and found the daughter. However, I also was mistaken about the death location. Her obit said that she lived at Commerce but died in the hospital at Miami, Ottawa Co, Ok. - dennis

Martha Jane Gregory
continued. She only had one child and that was Nelle Speaker. Nelle married Buford Perkins on Jan 24, 1920 in Pettis Co, MO and in 1926 married Clarence Humphries. She is also buried at Galina, KS and I think in same cememtery as her mother and Aunt Magaret Ann Gregory Cooley, who died in 1957. They lived together in Galena, KS.

Uncle Jim Speaker never married, but had a drinking problem. He would want to hold my mother on his lap and he spilled coffee in her. Uncle James Speaker in buried in Otterville, Cooper Co, MO with his parents, Lucy Wood and Fred Speaker. Many of the Speaker children and their spouses are buried in the same cemetery.
If you would like copies of this information, I would be happy to supply it. Most of it is on my web page.
