Donna Gale Jenkins • November 19, 2020



Donna Gale Jenkins, age 63, of Pensacola, Florida passed away November 19, 2020.

Donna was a native of Pensacola and lived locally until graduating from high school. She then moved to Ft Lauderdale where she achieved her certification as an echocardiographic technician, a profession in which she excelled. She practiced for years in South Florida and then returned to Pensacola where she practiced in the NW Florida area. She was an excellent caregiver to her parents and a kind and caring neighbor to the elderly in her community. She loved yard work and had a real green thumb. There was little that she couldn’t tackle around the house, inside or out, and often did small jobs for others; she was quite the handyman. Donna had a big heart, a generous nature and a soft spot for those in need. Donna is preceded in death by parents Roy C. Jenkins and Sue V. Jenkins, brother Steve Jenkins, and precious niece Emily Jenkins. She is survived by brother Dwight Jenkins, sisters Carolyn Rohr (Randy), Suzanne Olvany (Jimmy) and so many precious nephews, nieces, great nephews and great nieces, several cousins, sister-in-laws Kathy Jenkins and Chris Jenkins, and best friend Denise Ware.

    Donna was also a spectacular aunt to Sister and me. How very sweet she was! And how incredibly fun…

    Aunt Donna’s uplifting and hopeful messages on social media were a positive influence to everyone that saw them. In person, any awkward situation was put at ease with her presence. Her knowledge was broad and vast and she loved to teach if you were willing to listen. She was a natural caregiver at heart. She always made sure the kids had a good time at the family gatherings.
    I’ll always remember you going to “Your Ami”.
    I love you and miss you!
