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