Erica Ashley Jenkins

February 19, 1992 — January 22, 2023

Mrs. Erica Ashley Jenkins, age 30, of Murray, Kentucky, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 22, 2023.

Mrs. Jenkins was born February 19, 1992, in Murray, Kentucky. She was raised on a farm in Kirksey. She was an active child with a ton of imagination. She played softball and competed in numerous events in 4-H.

In 2005, she met the love of her life, Jarred Jenkins. It was love at first sight. They welcomed their first child, a daughter, in 2008. She graduated with her GED in April 2011, and welcomed their son later that year.

Throughout her life she worked in many different healthcare fields, gaining six total licenses and certifications. Her passion was to help people in any way she could. This passion eventually led her to become a 911 Emergency Dispatcher at the Marshall County 911 Center.

Erica loved being outdoors, rock hunting, shopping, and rescuing animals of all kinds, but most of all she loved her family.

She was preceded in death by her father, Gregory Phillip Wyatt; paternal grandparents, James Earl Wyatt, Cathern Wyatt, and Dorothy Scott Wyatt; as well as her maternal grandparents, Maryann Roesch and Charles Roesch.
