Sharon Marie Jenkins passed away Monday, April 11, 2022 at her home in Butte with her daughters and sister at her side.

She married William “Bud” Jenkins January 26, 1964 and became a stay home mom to their four girls. Once the girls were all in school, she earned her licensed practical nursing certificate going back to work until her health no longer allowed her to do so. Sharon bravely and graciously dealt with Multiple Sclerosis for 40 years. After Bud passed away, she was able to stay in her home mostly due to the loving an attentive care of her daughters. She never felt sorry for herself and had a very positive outlook about life. She enjoyed being with family; never being one to miss out on a family event, working puzzles, playing games and quiet time on her deck watching the birds.
