Minnie Dorothy (Mitzi) Jennings

DUBLIN - Minnie Dorothy (Mitzi) Jennings passed from this life into eternity on June 2, 2020 in Dublin, Texas. She was 94 years and seven months old.

She was born on Oct. 13, 1925 in Gleason, Wisconsin to Robert and Olga Wedemayer. She attended school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, graduating in 1944.

She married the late Edward Jennings, her World War II sweetheart in May of 1946.

Her husband, Reverend Jennings, was a minister for 34 years, and was pastor of the First Baptist Church of Florence, Texas for 22 years.

While a pastor’s wife, Mitzi held many roles in service to her Lord.

She was a beloved wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a very loving, giving, and generous person. She loved flowers and gardening, animals, her Church, her Lord, her family, and many, many wonderful friends. Mitzi will be missed dearly, by all who knew her.

Her favorite Bible Scripture was Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Mitzi was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 55 years, one son, Richard Wade, who died at birth, four sisters, seven brothers, six sisters-in-law, seven brothers-in-law, and a number of nieces and nephews.

Mitzi is survived by her children Edward Jennings (Blanca), Jean Montgomery (Wayne), grandchildren, Andre (Jenn), Evan (Suzy), Coy, Kacy (Brandon), and Dustin. Mitzi has three great-grandchildren, Isa, Beto, and Jaxx. She is also survived by three sisters-in-law, and a host of nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, a benefit fund has been established at Texas Bank in Dublin, Texas to develop a garden at Three Oaks Assisted Living in memory of Mitzy. Please call to give your donation at 254-445-3356.
