For those that know Betty, you can imagine she went on her own terms. Warm thoughts of the next beach and a cool refreshment in hand, Betty Jenkins, 89, passed peacefully in the early hours of March 1, 2022.
Raised in Newton, MA, Betty graduated from Newton High School and the Chamberlain School for Women. She married Donald Jenkins, and moved to Framingham in 1960 to raise her family on Prior Drive. She spent many happy years working at Filenes and Macy’s before her retirement. She moved to Haverhill Crossings in Haverhill in 2020 to be closer to family, and made countless friends while she was there.
Happy to rejoin her parents Arthur and Alice Fleming and her sister Claire. Betty is survived by her children Donna and husband Tom McCarron of Haverhill, Bryan Jenkins of Brewster and Kevin Jenkins of Needham; her five grandchildren Robbie, Tim, Elizabeth, Cole and Dylan. She also leaves five great-grandchildren who loved their Grammy.
Betty enjoyed every sip from life’s glass to the last and would be remiss to let any of us forget the fun and laughter shared amongst friends and family.
In celebration of Betty, and the countless precious memories she has left us all, family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Betty’s Life to be held on Sunday, March 6, in the Driscoll Funeral Home, 309 So. Main Street, Haverhill from 12:00 to 2:00 PM. Catholic Funeral Rites beginning at 2:00 PM. Burial will take place on Monday, March 7, in St. Joseph Cemetery, West Roxbury at 11:00 AM. You all know the saying… Let’s just hope Betty can make it there on time. For guestbook, please visit www.driscollcares.com
