   Korena Kay Jenkinson Williams, age 76, of Burlingham, Ohio died July 20, 2020 after a short illness from returning cancer.  She was born August 1, 1943 in Providence, Rhode Island and was the daughter of Curtis Jenkinson and Dortha Satterfield Jenkinson.
   A graduate of Middleport High School and Bliss Business College, Kay was a former employee of the State of Ohio and Royal Crown Bottling in Middleport.  She was an avid swimmer and as a teenager she and a friend swam across the Ohio River and back just for the fun of it.  She also spent a great deal of time on family genealogy and county history.  She was a member of the Meigs County Historical Society, the Chester Shade Historical Association, the Bedford-Lodi Historical Society, the Shade-Lodi History and Genealogy Association, and the Shade Community Center Association.  She often posted historical pictures on various Facebook groups, was very well known to post in the Middleport Interesting Pictures group, and was active in her Middleport High School reunions.  She loved her cats, planting flowers, teaching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren how to swim, and cheering them on in any sports they played!  In her spare time, she loved to use her sharp wit to joke with anyone she met and ask them about their family history.
   Kay attended the Middleport Church of Christ and was a member of the Carleton Church of Kingsbury Road, Pomeroy.
