Barbara Jenkins

July 22, 1952 — March 7, 2022


Barbara Ann Richins (Jenkins), 69, returned to her heavenly home March 7, 2022, in Provo, UT.


Barbara was born on July 22, 1952 as the first of five children to Clyde Ray Richins and Afton Martha Walker. She was born and raised in American Fork, Utah


Barbaras greatest joy came from spending time with her family. She could frequently be found camping, fishing, and having backyard barbeques with them. Barbara was especially talented at decorating and loved to enhance the beauty of her surroundings through those talents. She had a gift for arranging flowers, crocheting and quilting. Perhaps the greatest tribute to her though was her personification of unconditional love towards others. She was always quick to forgive and sought to serve others in any way she could. She would gladly have given anything she had to anyone if she thought they might need it, including herself and her time. So much of who she sought to be was exemplified in her professional career as she served and loved residents at the Utah State Developmental Center.


Barbara was an active and faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had a testimony of and a profound love for her Savior, Jesus Christ, and sought to proclaim his name through the way she lived her life.


Barbara is survived by her loving children, Joshua (April) Jenkins, Danielle (Alan) Owens, Amber (Jake) Ellison, Mathew (Jennifer) Jenkins, Nathan Jenkins; 19 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren; her siblings Diane Morrill, Bruce (Barbara) Richins, Carl (Carmon) Richins, and Lloyd (Jennifer) Richins.


Barbara is preceded in death by her parents, Clyde Richins and Afton Walker, and by her granddaughter Emily Levi Jenkins
