EAST-JENKINS, Carla It is with great sadness I announce the passing of my amazing mother Carla East-Jenkins age 52.

She is the Daughter of Harry East Sr. (deceased) and Mother Bernice Kent - Harrisburg, Pa. She has been a devoted part of the GA Tech Staff for around 20 years advocating tirelessly for the students and staff that she affectionately referred to as her second family.

Carla loved gardening, baking, her 1 year old German Shepherd Zehn Von, and helping anyone she could. She passed in bed at her Covington, GA home with her brother and nephew at her side. She leaves behind siblings Harry East Jr., Michael East, Rosalind East, Jacqueline East, Timothy East, & Michele Banks, and her daughter Syreeta Howard. Additionally but not least she leaves behind her loving partner Sheldon Jenkins, her step-father Samuel Jenkins, best friend and co-parent John Crippins, as well as extended family and friends. There will be a private family viewing on Friday May 5, 2017 at Pollard Funeral Home, 827 Pollard Blvd SW, Atlanta GA 30315. Lastly, a message from her mother Bernice East: Farewell to my beloved daughter. I appreciate all the wonderful things you've done. I'll leave with this quote: "Time for me to go now, I won't say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky. In the morning sunrise when all the world is new, Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you." Pollard Funeral Home, Inc., 827 Pollard Blvd., SW Atlanta, GA 30315 404-688-7073

    I am truly sorry for your loss. However, John 5:25 says “the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live”. Those who have died and are in God’s memory will be resurrected to a restored earth and have a hope of everlasting life. (Psalm 37:11, 29) I hope this brings you peace.
