Gracie Amelia Jenkins, 20, of Batesville,  went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, May 30, 2024.

Born and raised in Batesville, Gracie had the definition of a servant’s heart, and was pursuing a nursing degree from Northwest Mississippi Community College to help serve those who needed her. She stayed busy between school, work, and spending time with her friends; but always made time for her family and God.

Even through her struggles with sickness, she always had the best attitude; and, everyone who knew her knew how her humor and smile could light up any room.
