Dolores Marie Jenkins was born on May 8, 1951, to her parents Tony and Phyllis Thoms (née Burtney) in Humboldt, Saskatchewan; the second child in a family of five children. She grew up on the farm with her brothers and sisters: Lawrence, Leona, Ruth, and Danny, and attended Mount Carmel School from grades one to seven and later Carmel School. A wife, mother, and homemaker, throughout her life, Dolores had two children of her own, Connie and Brent. Over the years Dolores enjoyed her flowers and crafts, including needlework, knitting, and crochet. She was a stylish lady and she thoroughly enjoyed the effort it took to look wonderful every day, with hair cuts and dress shopping both seen as highlights, rather than chores to be done! Dolores was known to be a gifted conversationalist and to be a good host and a good friend. One of her favorite places to go to relax was certainly her familiar home-away-from-home, the campsite at Waldsea Lake. When her children were young all the way to the present, Dolores made time for getting away at the lake and before his passing, she would be at the lake with Rick for five months during summer; it was another home. A destination that was a bit more of an effort, but well worth it, was a trip to Fairmont Hot Springs in southeastern British Columbia, and Dolores had fond memories of her visits there over the years as well. A quiet woman who enjoyed the simple joys of life, Dolores will be sadly missed by her children and their families: Connie Poss (Mark Hauk), and Kyla and Kirsten, and Brent Mycock (Emaghea Lau); her siblings: Lawrence (Bev) Thoms, Ruth (Doug) Engele, and Danny (Debbie) Thoms, and her nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her husband Richard Jenkins; her parents, Tony and Phyllis Thoms (née Burtney); her sister, Leona (Simon) Boneault; and her parents-in-law, Verna and John Jenkins.
