Nancy Jenkins of Calgary, Alberta, passed away on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at the Foothills Hospital from heart failure at the age of 69 years.

Nancy was born October 15, 1948 in Whitehorse, Yukon. She was educated in a Residential school until her father passed away. She was then placed in a foster home in Medicine Hat.

    Brian, my sincere condolences to you and your Family.
    Nancy Jenkins, VE6OTL – my dearest friend. Who was Nancy?
    Nancy was a WOW factor. She not only made beautiful jewelry and needlepoint, but she was a soldier when camping. She sawed wood, cooked on an outside fire-pit, and was also the hostess of her campsite.
    Nancy made everyone who visited feel welcome. She had a joyful laugh and was always smiling.
    As an Amateur Radio operator, Nancy helped with radio communications for many public service events. To name a few, the MS Bike Tour and Walk, K100, Jasper-Banff Relay Race, Lung Association and the Stampede Parade.
    Nancy had a heart of gold, easily made friends and was true to form where her loyalty was strong and true. Nancy was one my best friends, and I am going to be very lost without her.
    Loving and missing you!! Linda-Lou, Oelke, VE6LGO

  10. Brian, my deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your Family.
    Nancy had been a Friend of Chapter 151 for several years before coming eligible for full membership in QCWA. She recently joined on February 6, 2018.
    Nancy would seldom miss a Chapter meeting, and would always assist with selling 50/50 tickets, providing door prizes for our meeting without being asked, and would share her laughter and smile with all who attended. Her organizing skills were second to none, and if anything needed to be done, she was there pitching in.
    Whatever Nancy did, it created a WOW factor. Her needlepoint and jewelry making, along with her other crafts, were amazing.
    She enjoyed camping at Glacier Waterton Hamfest, along with many other places. She was the campsite hostess at the Glacier Waterton Hamfest, and invited everyone to her campsite for a Saturday evening of fun and laughter.
    Nancy will be sorely missed by all who knew her. I know Linda-Lou and I will!

    73,

    Ken Oelke, VE6AFO
    President, QCWA Wild Rose Chapter 151
