JENKINS, Donald R. and B. Jane of Lion’s Head, Ontario. – Jane (nee Stock) passed peacefully at Gateway Haven Nursing Home in Wiarton, Ontario November 19, 2020 in her 87th year.  Don, in his 90th year, went to continue their 67 year love affair with her on March 10, 2021 after a final brief stay in Lion’s Head Hospital. Don and brother Ken operated A.C.

Last but not least, Don & Jane will be missed by cousin Russell Usher and wife Bonnie to whom our eternal thanks are extended for the overwhelming love and care they showed to Dad in his final days.  They made it possible for his final days to be in his beloved Lion’s Head and we will forever be in their debt. The family extends special thanks to Dr. Dave Thomson, Dr. Shannon Vanderstelt and the staff at Lion’s Head Hospital for looking after both Mom & Dad with respect and expertise.
