Helen Jennings Obituary

Helen Frazier Jennings, 84, of 996 Bachelor Hill Road, Walterboro, entered into eternal rest Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at Beaufort Memorial Hospital.


Mrs. Jennings was born March 5, 1938, a native and lifelong resident of Colleton County and was the daughter of the late Ashley and Lorine Bazzle Frasier. She was a member of Bedon Baptist Church.


Affectionately known as “Nanny” or “Nanny Goat” to the boys. Helen was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great grandmother. She was an amazing southern cook and loved spending time with her family. She looked forward to visits from her grands and great-grands. She loved traveling and taking trips to the mountains with her family and friends. You could always find her at a casino. She loved to drive the interstate to visit with her sister Sue. She loved her country music: Conway Twitty, Willie Nelson and Elvis. She loved to dance and cut-up. She loved her flowers. She always kept up with all the family through the visits and phone calls.


Surviving are: her daughters, Reba Strickland (Willie) of Walterboro, and Rita Strickland (David) of Ruffin; grandchildren, Natasha Wilson (Brian), Justin Thomas (Hilary), Kyle Thomas (Lindsay), Dusty Strickland (Karen); great-grandchildren, Brooke Harmon (Robert), Mariah Aguilera, David Aguilera, Tanner DeWitt (Hannah), Tatum DeWitt, Mason Thomas; great-great grandchildren, Jaydon, Ava, Lucas, Travis and Layla; three sisters, Sue Lyon, Lucille James and Diane Jones (Wayne); special sister-in-law, Letha Ramsey and Diane Melander, whom she loved as a daughter. She was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Reginald Jennings; and her siblings, Mary Jennings, Lorraine Keegan, Gloria Fletcher and Ashley Fraser, Jr.


The family would like to thank her Chaplin, doctors, nurses and staff at Beaufort Memorial Hospital, and a special thanks to Jeremy Todd with Hospice and Hilary Thomas for their care and support.
