Vicky Jean Jenks

May 31, 1952 — July 23, 2023

Weston

Vicky Jean Jenks, 71, passed away Sunday, July 23rd peacefully at her home in Weston, WI, surrounded by her husband and daughters.

Vicky was born in Ladysmith, WI, to Victoria and Earl Kinnear on May 31st, 1952. She graduated from Bruce High School and continued her education attending North Central Technical College graduating in 1974 with her associate degree in Nursing. Vicky went on to practice as a Registered Nurse (RN) for over 30 years committing her life and career to helping others, first as a surgical/oncology nurse and then, in retirement, serving as a parish nurse. 

In September of 1976 Vicky was united in holy matrimony to Larry Jenks. This union went on to be blessed with three beautiful girls and countless family memories.

Vicky was a constant presence in her daughters' lives and their biggest supporter as they followed their dreams. Her smile was always warm and she always carried her heart on her sleeve, a reflection of her kind and giving spirit. Vicky was an animal lover always taking the opportunity to spoil her puppy Toby and fur grandchild Oliver.

Vicky is proceeded in death by her parents Victoria and Earl Kinnear, her mother and father-in-law Arliss and Arnold Jenks, her maternal grandparents Peter and Victoria Mansky, and paternal grandparents Otto and Goldie Kinnear.

Vicky lives on through her husband Larry Jenks and three daughters Krista Jenks of Weston, WI, Kesa Jenks (Eric Bendzinski) of Maple Grove, MN, and Kortney Jenks of Neenah, WI, her two brothers Daryl (Kathi) Kinnear of Bruce, WI, and Earl (Margaret) Kinnear Jr. of Albany, MN, her brother-in-law Richard (Mary) Jenks and sister-in-law Mary (John) Grossmeier of Olathe, KS, as well as countless nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews and friends.
