Pat Jenkins

Pat Jenkins passed away peacefully in her home, February 2023, at the age of 96. Her daughters, Sally and Sue and sons-in law, Dan and Bob were with her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bob, and twin brother, Art.

Pat was born on May 4, 1926, in Astoria, Oregon to Art and Anne Hildebrand. She met the love of her life Bob Jenkins, at a Navy dance held at Tongue Point near Astoria Oregon. They married December 7, 1950, and were married for 59 years. After several moves for Bob’s work, they settled in Palo Alto CA where they lived until they joyfully moved to the Sequoias Portola Valley in 2002. Bob and Pat travelled extensively and had a passion for entertaining; great dinner, great bridge, great conversation, and lots of laughs and love.

Throughout Pat’s life she volunteered for many different organizations. St. Mark’s church in Palo Alto and Girl Scouts were two of her favorites.

After moving to the Sequoias, she joined bridge and mahjong groups and volunteered on many committees. She was also know for baking cookies and custard for anyone who needed a “lift-me-up”.
