Jenna Elizabeth Homeniuk
“ Yennah” – “Jenna Banana” – “Kiddo”
1998 – 2014
It is with profound sorrow that the family of Jenna Homeniuk announces her passing on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 in Calgary, Alberta.
Jenna was born on April 15, 1998 in St. Albert, Alberta. Jenna and her family moved from St. Albert to Kimberley in October of 2000 when she was 2 years old. Jenna fell in love with the beauty and nature of the Kimberley area and her love for the outdoors started to develop. Jenna also discovered a love of drawing and she flourished in her drawing skills. It was not too often that Jenna did not have a pencil and paper in her hand!
Jenna will be fondly remembered for her vivacious and adventurous spirit. The outdoors is where she was happiest – on her mountain bike, in a lake or river, skiing down her favourite run on a powder day, or sitting under a tree being creative with her pencil and pad. Jenna loved being around her family and friends. She loved life and all it had to offer. Regardless of the activity, Jenna’s enthusiasm was contagious which always made being in her presence a great joy.
Jenna is survived by her parents Paula Thomas and Dana Homeniuk, sisters Katie and Brittany, nephew Bentley; grandparents Robert and Linda Giddings and Wendy McCoshen, uncle Andy (Dixie), cousins Jarrett, Brody Kaeleigh, Adrianna (son Emmitt), aunt Jill (Brian), cousins Jeffrey, Amber and Jordan, uncle Shawn (Kathy), cousins Jamie and Keanu, aunt Susan, cousin Dominic, aunt Tanya (Gerritt) and cousin Kyle.
A Celebration Of Jenna’s Life will be held on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 1:00 pm at the McKim School Auditorium, 689 Rotary Drive, Kimberley. Jenna’s favourite colour was teal/mint green. If you have this colour in your closet, please wear it – if not that is okay too.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
