Gerda Jensine Jenkin

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our lovely Mother, Granny and Great Granny Gerda Jensine Jenkin.

Mom was born in Hemnesberget, Norway on September 4, 1918 and passed away January 10, 2018 at the age of 99.

She is survived by her loving children. Tom (Joan), Judy (Robert), Jennifer, Marnie (Ron) and Tony (Ann).

Grandchildren Teresa, Craig, Kristine, Derek, Vince, Nicole, Jeff, Dyne,€Greg, Cora, Holly and Haley and thirteen great grandchildren.

She is predeceased by her husband Tim, sister Edel, son-in-law Dennis, grandsons Kristopher and Travis and nephew Larry.

Mom was fiercely proud of her Norweigian heritage. She emigrated to Trail when she was six, moved to Grand Forks and then back to Trail where she met and married Tim. Together they owned Trail Machine Works. They traveled the world and enjoyed life but number one was family.

Thanks to the staff at Rosewood Village, doctors and nurses at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital.

A very special thanks to Shannon.

Memorial Donations can be made to the KBRH Foundation or Kidney Foundation.
