Laureen Jenkins, 61
Sydney Mines

It is with profound sadness and grief that we announce the passing of Margaret Laureen Jenkins, age 61, on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at the An Cala Palliative Care Unit of the CBRH. Laureen left this world knowing that she was loved and cherished, which satisfied her through her long and difficult battle with cancer.
Laureen was the daughter of Louise Jenkins (Giles) and the late Walter (Skippy) Jenkins.
Besides her mother, she is survived by her spouse Wendy McLellan; sisters, Jocelyn (Rey), Mass., Tanya (Ron), Mass, brother Kimberly (Lynn), Alberta, five nephews and once niece. Laureen is also survived by her mother-in-law, Florence McLellan, sisters-in-law Kathy Scott (John), Sydney Mines, Eleanor Wilson (David), Truro, and their family.
Also left to mourn Laureen are very special relatives, Mary Viva and her family; and Bill and Esther Giles and their family. Laureen leaves behind many more aunts, uncles, and cousins and many cherished friends.
Besides her father, Laureen was predeceased by several aunts, uncles and cousins.
Up until the time of her illness Laureen was the General Manager of Wendy’s Restaurant, North Sydney.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation for Laureen will be held on Sunday, January 20, 2019, from 2-4 and 7-9 pm in the JM Jobes Funeral Home, Sydney Mines. A Funeral Mass to celebrate Laureen’s life will be held on Monday at 10:00 am in Holy Family Church, Sydney Mines, with Fr. James Oliver officiating, followed by a reception in the Parish Hall. Interment will take place at a later date.
In lieu of Flowers, charitable donations may be made to the Cape Breton Cancer Centre Patient Care Fund, the Autism Society of CB, Haley Street Adult Services or a charity on one’s choice.
