Ollie B. Jenkins, 99, of Poteau, OK departed this life on  Saturday, November 4, 2017 in Poteau.  Ollie was born August 31, 1918 in Ardmore, OK to Gilbert G. & Susie (Conley) Byrd. She grew up in Wewoka, OK  the second eldest of 9 children.   She was preceded in death by her husband, Jesse Jenkins; her eldest daughter, Doris Forrest and her youngest son, Anthony Warren.

          Her survivors are a daughter, Vivian Warren & son, Laverne Warren; brother, Andrew Byrd.  She was grandmother to 5; great grandmother to 11 and great great grandmother to10; plus a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.

          Mrs. Jenkins was the church mother at  Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Poteau, OK.  She enjoyed attending services when she was able, going bowling, working outside in the yard, visiting with her sister and singing.

                    As her daughter stated, "She was my best friend."  I am sure that we can all agree to that.  She was an encourager, personable and a good listener.  She loved to laugh and she cared about people.

          Back in the day I remember her getting a paper route for some of the youth in the community.  She would drive up there in that orange Datsun to pick the papers up for them and sit there, help them get started rolling them and she went to work.  She was a motivator and gave us so many fond memories and laughs.  She was a true queen who was the epitome of Love and Faith.

          Services will be 12:30 pm, Saturday, November 11, 2017 at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, Poteau, OK.  Interment will follow in Centerpoint Cemetery, Redland, OK.
