Patricia Margaret (Nagle) Jenkins
Resident of Linden, VA
Patricia Margaret (Nagle) Jenkins passed away peacefully in her home at age 93 on the 30th of December, 2018, surrounded by her large, loving family. She was living in Linden, Virginia, with her daughter Marilyn and son-in-law Wayne Coffron. Pat was born August 30, 1925, in Sydney, Australia, to Patrick Francis Nagle and Josephine (O'Keefe) Nagle. Pat and her sisters, Eileen and Joan, attended a convent school in Mittagong through elementary school. Pat graduated from Sacred Heart High School in Sydney and completed a secretarial course of study from a local college. She was reared in Sydney by her father and his sister, Mary, who owned a home in a Paddington neighborhood. At age 19, Pat joined the Australian Army Medical Women's Service, serving as a clerk in the Sydney Hospital during WWII. After the war, Pat met and fell in love with Charles Jenkins in New Caledonia in the South Pacific. They married in Sydney and moved to married housing on the campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA where Charles earned a BS in Electrical Engineering. They had three children: James Sydney, John Patrick, and Marilyn Eugenia. The family lived in San Francisco, South San Francisco, Palo Alto and Los Altos Hills. After the children were grown, Pat earned a degree from Foothill College. Charlie and Pat then moved to Saratoga, CA. Pat worked for the Santa Clara County's library system for 20 years, was an avid Bridge player and active community volunteer wherever she lived. She moved to Virginia 11 years ago to live with her daughter Marilyn and son-in-law, Wayne.
Pat is predeceased by her husband Charlie and her sisters Eileen and Joan. She is survived by her three children: James (Christine) Jenkins, John Jenkins, Marilyn (Wayne) Coffron; four grandchildren: Sean (Erin) Coffron, Sarah (Ryan) Canfield, Andrew (Mukda) Coffron, Charlie (Emily) Jenkins, eleven great grandchildren, nephews and nieces and other friends and family members throughout the world.
