in memory of

Joan Alma Jenkin

Joan Alma Jenkin

18th April 1937 - 18th December 2022


Joan passed away peacefully with family by her side after a battle with Parkinsons over the last 10 years.

Beloved wife of Ron (dec),

loving mother of Kerrie and Glenn and mother in law of Murray.

Grandmother of Mathew, Damien and Nicole.

Great Grandma Joan of Aurora, Harper and Luna.

Will be sadly missed by all who knew her xxxxx


Mum, watching you leave this world was very difficult but definitely the best thing for you.

Parkinsons has forced you to leave your beloved home and go into care which is not exactly your life plan.

Things will never be the same without you.

Reunited with your beloved "Ronnie" for your wedding anniversary.

Lots of Love Kerrie and Murray xxxx


Mum, Glad we got a chance to talk and say goodbye.

Thinking of you always.

Love Glenn xxxx


Such a kind and gentle soul,

Grandma, you will be missed, but can now finally be at peace.

Love Mathew and Harper xxxx


Grandma you were very special to us. Your love and the happy

memories you have given us mean so much, Will miss you forever.

Damien, Nicole, Aurora and Luna xxxx

    Joan was a lovely lady, determined bowling competitor and along with Ronnie introduced many to bowling at Harcourt. ‘Joan Jet’ as she was affectionately known by a few, left her mark and many happy memories.
    May she rest in peace.

    Dear Joan,
    Your 20 minute Probate workshop set me up for my nearly 20 year career. Were you a good teacher or was I a good student? Either way, I thank you.
    We certainly had some laughs. Your long term memory is unsurpassed, something we do not share.
    Thank you for your friendship
    Jo Arrowsmith

    Remembering an old school friend at Maryborough High School
    — Joan (Scottie) was always an admirable person, kind & sensible, caring & strong,
    and I can see from the tributes she continued in her grown up life to be all those things.
