|“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saint.”
Allean Jennings was born August 17, 1903, the fifth of five children of the late Christo-pher and Catherine Carper. She made her Christian Confession and united with the New Light Methodist Episcopal Church under the pastorate of Reverend W. R. London, Sr. In later years, she became a member of the Johnson Chapel United Methodist Church, where her husband pastored and she served faithfully until her health failed.
In January, 1922, she was married to the Reverend Lee C. Jennings. She was the mother of three children. One daughter, Ruby Logan, preceded her in death.
She was a devoted wife who stood steadfast by her husband in all his endeavors. She was a loving and caring mother who trained her children to love and serve God. She was quiet and unassuming and loved by all who came in contact with her.
On Tuesday, July 17, 1990 at 11:00 p.m. at the Willis Knighton Medical Center, this dear, beloved and faithful servant passed away. Her beautiful life will be forever cherished in the hearts of those who knew her.
She lives to cherish her memories, her husband, Rev. Lee C. Jennings, her son, Hardy
and his wife Elizabeth, her daughter, Blanche, a host of cousins and one niece.
“Come and Rest”
God said you were getting weary, so He did what
He thought best, He came and stood beside you and whispered,
“Come and Rest”
You bade no one a last farewell not even a goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why.
