Ann Lucinda Caspar

Ann Lucinda Jenkins Caspar went to be with Jesus on April 24, 2019. Ann was born on February 17, 1944 in Rogersville (now Radcliff), KY to Clarence and Irene (Vowels) Jenkins. She attended school at St. Brigid Elementary (where she was married and served as principal in her adult years), Mount St. Joseph Academy, and Brescia College, and later completed her Masters and Rank I at WKU. In the summer of 1969, Ann met Robert Caspar of Paducah, the love and partner of her life, and the two were married six months later on February 7, 1970. Known as Mom, Mommy, Mammy, Sissy, Mrs. Caspar, and simply Ann, her many hats included teacher, counselor, principal (founding Woodland Elementary School), and teacher intern advisor to countless students, staff, and fellow educators throughout the state. She served in every level of education from elementary through college, and approached each person--regardless of the role--with empathy, wisdom, and love. Ann and Bob went through the Diaconate ordination process of the Catholic church into which he was ordained deacon in 1996. Ann was the first woman to serve on the Deacon Council, and the two continued serving together at St. Brigid, St. Martin, St. John, and St. James parishes. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Bob; four children: Chris (Ange), Dana Noland, Beth Carter (Chris), and Mark (Kathryn); eight grandchildren: Conner, Evan, Katie, Jonah, Sophie, Ben, Cole, and Clare; and three siblings: Paul Jenkins (Cathy), John Jenkins (Janice), and Maggie Beville (Mike).
