Mary Fulton Jenkin of Davis, who celebrated her 100th birthday last Saturday, has been welcomed into the 4th Assembly District’s Century Circle.

Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis, launched the Century Circle in 2010 to identify centenarians throughout her Assembly district. The program brings attention to the growing number of people 100 years of age and older, their families and those who care for them.

Jenkin was born March 29, 1914, in Valier, Mont., to David L. Fulton and Stella Nuzum. She was one of four children. She attended Lawrence University in Appleton, Wis., from 1932 to 1936. While writing a column for the college newspaper, The Lawrentian, she became acquainted with Thomas Jenkin, the business manager of the newspaper. They were married on Dec. 26, 1938.

From 1946 to 1963, the couple went on several sabbatical trips and traveled the world. Mary was involved in the League of Women Voters, took as many art classes as she could and was active in various social groups. Having enjoyed many ornithology trips, she continued to travel with her sister and niece. She enjoys bridge, painting, traveling and had a beautiful garden.

In February 2004, Mary moved to the University Retirement Community in Davis to the delight of her niece’s family and friends, who live in the area. She is frequently visited by all who enjoy her wit and conversation.

Jenkin is very special to her 10 nieces and nephews and their families and dear friends who are gathering to celebrate and encourage the move into the next century of her life.

If you or a loved one would like to participate in the Century Circle, contact Yamada’s district office at 530-662-7867 or assemblymember.yamada@assembly.ca.gov with the name, contact and birthday month for the centenarian.
