SNOW HILL - Mrs. Emma Mae Ginn Jenkins, 97, died Saturday evening, June 21, 2014. A native of Greene County, she was born January 5, 1917, the daughter of Edd Dawson Ginn and Patty Estelle Butts Ginn. Following retirement from Wachovia Bank in Snow Hill, Mrs. Jenkins began to divide her time between her residence in Snow Hill during the winter months and her home at Atlantic Beach during the spring, summer and fall months. An avid homemaker and hostess, Mrs. Jenkins was well revered for her famous chicken pastry and fried cornbread and greatly enjoyed playing Bridge with both her clubs in Snow Hill and Atlantic Beach. Mrs. Jenkins spent the last three years in Fayetteville to be nearer her son, where she still enjoyed the morning newspaper and doing the cryptoquote while enjoying a bowl of fruit with a cup of coffee before deciding what to actually have for breakfast, which was her favorite meal of the day. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Jenkins was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd P. Jenkins for nearly 50 years until his death in 1985. Left to cherish her memory is her son, Floyd P. Jenkins Jr. of Fayetteville; grandson, Bradley Albert Jenkins of Wilmington; granddaughter, Temesia Jenkins High of Chesapeake, Virginia; and a great-grandchild, Chase Nolan. Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, June 25, at the Snow Hill Cemetery with the Reverend Rick Mondell, Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Snow Hill, where Mrs. Jenkins was a member, officiating the service. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 1-1:45 p.m. at Taylor-Tyson Funeral Service in Snow Hill.
