Dorothy (Dee) Ann (MacLean) Jenkins , born February 28, 1939 in Margaretville, NY passed away peacefully on the morning of December 25, 2019. Dee, daughter of Earl and Jessie MacLean, was born and raised in Margaretville. She attended Margaretville Central School and later worked at the Art Gallery in town. For those who knew Dee best, she loved the New Kingston Valley and the home that she and her husband Lee shared there. Dee had an amazing knack for gardening, was an incredible cook in the kitchen, an avid reader and her love for animals was known by all. Dee was a strong woman who always welcomed a good political debate. Her sense of humor and sarcasm were infectious. May she be at peace, knowing she was loved and will be missed by many.
Dee is pre-deceased by her husband Arthur Lee Jenkins and daughter-in-law, Mary Jenkins. She is survived by her children, Charles D. Jenkins of Indiana and Penny L. Hendricks of Maryland and by her grandchildren, Renee L. Keyser (Matthew) of Delanson, NY, Angela M. Jenkins of Catskill, NY, Nathaniel J. Hendricks of Margaretville, NY, Adam L. Hendricks of Margaretville, NY, and Aaron M. Jenkins (Heather) of North Carolina. Great grandchildren, Kate, Ezra, Ella, Elijah, Gray and Caleb and extended family, Margot Louise Jenkins also survive.
Sincerely, we thank The Pavilion at Robinson Terrace for their love and care and appreciate the friendships made there. A private service will be held for immediate family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Hynes Funeral Home, Margaretville NY.
