Albertine Jenkines Raub

Albertine Jenkines Raub, 100, Logansport, passed away at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, in Miller’s Merry Manor.

Born on Oct. 19, 1912, in Logansport, she was the daughter of Walter Bertrum and Elizabeth Lottridge Jenkines.

Albertine attended the Church of Christ, Scientist, as a child in Logansport. Upon her marriage, she became a member of Calvary Presbyterian Church.

She attended Daniel Webster grade school, Lincoln Junior High School, and Logansport High School. She completed high school at Fairfax Hall Boarding School for Girls in Waynesboro, Virginia. She attended Vogue School of Art in Chicago.

Albertine was a member of Kappa Kappa Kappa sorority and was a director of the F & M State Bank.

Until she lost her eyesight, she studied the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy and the Holy Bible one hour every day.

Albertine married Malcolm Jacob Raub on December 28, 1933. He preceded her in death in 1981. Her second marriage was to her high school sweetheart, Dr. William Henry (Bud) Kammerer, in 1991. He passed away in 1993.

She and Dr. Kammerer lived on three Indian reservations in Montana, South Dakota and Iowa, where he was a volunteer physician after retiring.

Albertine was a world traveler, but Lake Maxinkuckee in Culver was her love (though she lived in many places, such as Naples, Florida, New York City, Logansport, Chicago, and Virginia).

She had many friends in various parts of the world, with her Logansport and Culver friends being her dearest. The ones who have gone before are many, and were much loved by her and her children.

Surviving are children, Ann Raub (husband, Don) Snyder, Logansport and Malcolm Jenkines “Pat” Raub, South Bend; sister, Barbara Jenkines, Logansport; five grandchildren, Kathleen Snyder (husband, Duke) Tanguy, Logansport, Dr. David Raub (wife, Heather) Snyder, Clarksville, Tenn., Raubyn Snyder (husband, Reed) Barich, Fishers, Elizabeth Raub (fiance Dan Stenberg), South Bend and Brian Raub, Atlanta, Ga; 13 great-grandchildren.

Also preceding in death were a daughter, Kathleen Raub, loving cousins, Margaret Ann Frushour Wilson Becker, and Robert Frushour, Sr., niece, Carroll Young and nephews, David Young and Thomas Young.

The funeral will be at 2 p.m. on Saturday at Kroeger Funeral Home, with the Rev. Doug Mankell officiating.

Visitation will be from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday at the funeral home. Burial will be at Mount Hope Cemetery.
