Obituary for Janice Mae Jenkins

Janice Mae (Underhill) Jenkins, 78, of Chandler, Indiana, peacefully passed on to be with her Lord and Savior on December 9, 2018, while in the presence of her loving family.
Janice was born August 23, 1940 in Lynnville, Indiana to Clarence and Emma Mae (Heilman) Underhill.
She was the oldest of eight siblings. She graduated from Lynnville High School. After high school, Janice met and married William Ray Jenkins, her husband of 59 years. The couple moved to Chandler, Indiana where Janice was a homemaker, volunteer, and mother to her children, Bill and Sherie. She was a longtime active member of Chandler General Baptist Church.
Her two children, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren were her life’s joy. As a sitter for many years, Janice touched the lives of many other children. Janice loved these children as her own. On any given day, she could be found in the audience at school activities or in the bleachers or a lawn chair at sporting events cheering on all of her kids. She had an exceptional sweet, kind, and unselfish spirit that was evident to all who met her.
Janice is survived by her husband, Ray; son Bill (Trena) Jenkins of Selvin; daughter Sherie (Mike) Forston of Boonville; grandchildren, Casey Jenkins, Abby (Jake) Board, Amy (Josh) Pierrard, Kelly Jenkins, Maggie (Jesse) Underwood, Molly Jenkins, Libby Jenkins, J Forston, and Luke Forston; 3 great grandchildren; sisters and best friends Linda Sellner, Carolyn Whitehouse, and Ruthie Howard; brothers Gary Underhill and David Underhill; an aunt, Louetta Young; several nieces and nephews; and her dog Rudy.
She was preceded in death by her parents Clarence and Emma Mae Underhill and her brothers, Donnie and Larry Underhill.
Services will be 10 A.M. on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at Koehler Funeral Home in Boonville, Indiana.
Visitation will be Tuesday, December 11, from 3-7 P.M. and Wednesday, December 12, from 9-10 A.M. prior to the service that will be co-officiated by Pastor David Garrett and Bob Noble. Burial will be in Maple Grove Cemetery in Boonville, Indiana
