In 1932 Jenkins Funeral Home was founded by Robert J. Jenkins in Coushatta, Louisiana. In his devotion to service more people, he moved his business to Mansfield, Louisiana on Mary Street in the year of 1940. The business continued to grow, and in 1965 the business was moved to Van Buren street Mansfield, Louisiana where it remains today. A branch business was established at 159 Ivanhoe Street in Many, Louisiana in the year of 1968.

After the death of Mr. Robert Jenkins on February 14, 1972, Mrs. Catherine W. Leshay became owner and operater of the business and continued to offer the same courteous, loyal, dependable, economical service for which Mr. Jenkins had became known.

Realizing the change in society, and the constant growth of our community, Mrs. Leshay made the change with the renovation of the Mansfield, office in 1982, and the new building built in Many, in 2002.
