In Memory of Patricia “Patty” Jenkins

May 5, 1943 ~ August 16, 2014

Patty left us on August 16, 2014, after a six month battle with cancer. She is so greatly missed by friends and family and her dog, Delany. She was born in Spokane, WA on May 5, 1943, to Henry and Elvira Fletcher, and attended North Central High School in Spokane. On October 6, 1960, she married Daniel J. Waldby, and they had two daughters. The family ran a Volkswagen restoration business called ‘Born Again Bugs’. Patty loved showing off their products at malls and fairs. Divorced in 1989, Patty moved to Wenatchee to be near her family. In December of 1995, she married David Jenkins and worked in the family business running the putting course at the Four Seasons Inn. After the business sold, she continued her love of meeting people by doing food demos at Top Foods. Patty loved the outdoors, cross country skiing, hiking in the woods, her flower garden and feeding the birds, along with enjoying traveling and cruising.

She was preceded in death by her parents. She leaves behind her husband, David; two daughters, Renae Bobbett of Richland, WA and Karene Wolf of Spokane Valley, WA; her sister, Darlene Jenkins of Leavenworth, WA; a special uncle, George (Louie) Fletcher; four grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

There will be private family get-together to celebrate Patty’s life. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society in her name. Arrangements are by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
