Obituary of Ann Mulling Jenkins
Ann Mulling Jenkins, 80, of Auburndale, Florida passed away August 24, 2021 at Lakeland Regional Hospital in Lakeland, Florida due to complications from surgery. A retired Polk County school teacher who taught English at Stambaugh Middle School, Ann made a positive impact in the lives of so many in the Auburndale community.
Ann was born on April 23, 1941 in Lakeland, Florida to James Foister and Helen (Lane) Mulling. She was a proud graduate of Florida State University. A voracious reader and occasional bingo player, Ann loved nothing more than going to the beach and spending time with her grandchildren to whom she was “Gran.” She was a lifelong member of the First United Methodist Church in Auburndale and was co-chairing the church’s centennial celebration.
Ann was preceded in death by both of her parents. She is survived by her loving family: 2 sons: John (Vanina) Jenkins of Newport Beach, CA and Robert (Haleh) Jenkins of Long Beach, CA, and 5 grandchildren: Ethan, Matthew, Jasmine, Ian and Benjamin.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests those so desiring to make donations in Ann’s name to the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22478, Oklahoma City, OK 73123 (www.cancer.org).
