Dorothy Priscilla “Taggie” Jenkins
October 28, 1941
November 3, 2020

Known to all who loved her as “Taggie,” Dorothy Priscilla Jenkins went to her heavenly reunion on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020 at CenterPoint Medical Center, Independence, Missouri after a brief illness. Taggie had retired in 2003 after working as a file clerk for the Missouri Division of Family Services for 23 years; prior to that, she had spent several years at AT&T and various hospitals as a telephone operator.

Taggie loved bingo, canasta, drives in the country looking for “moo-cows,” farkle, Jerry Springer, Louis L’Amour books, and John Wayne movies. But more than anything she loved spending time with her husband, Jim, her kids, her grandkids and her great-granddaughter. She attended William Chrisman High School in Independence, and was a member of the Lighthouse Pentecostal Church. She was one of the most big-hearted, compassionate and generous individuals ever born, and she will be terribly missed by everyone who loved her.

Taggie was preceded in death by her father, Abe Nichelson, her mother Hazel Hunter, her sister Karen, her brother Carl, and her sons Larry Jr. and Tony.

She is survived by her husband James Jenkins, of the home; her son Timothy Sinnard, of Independence, her daughter Holly Kamal, of Houston Texas and her husband Quazah; her son Travis Sinnard, of Austin, Texas; her grandson Ryan Sinnard of Buckner, Missouri and his partner Leanna Ulberg; her grandson Nazeem Kamal, of Houston, Texas; her granddaughter Alexis Kamal, of Houston, Texas; her great-granddaughters Laila Ulberg and Zarra Kamal; her sisters Barbara Hubbard of Sugar Creek, and Rosa Shatswell of Blue Springs

Services will be at Woodlawn Cemetery through Carson-Speaks Chapel at 10 A.M. on Tuesday, November 10, 2020, with the Reverend Jeffrey Ready presiding.
