Priscilla A. “Pat” (Jenkner) Magnan, 78, formerly from Auburn, lived the last 31 years in Charlton, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 22, 2021 in the comfort of her home, surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Worcester, raised and educated in Auburn, Pat was one of two daughters of the late Richard and Gertrude E. (Marlowe) Jenkner. She was a graduate of Auburn High School. She then began an extensive career of over 25 years with Auburn District Nursing as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Because she had a strong love for animals, she began pet sitting once she retired and continued to do so until her passing. Pat enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, reading, crocheting, and rooting for the Red Sox.

She leaves her loving children: Joanne Lafleche and her husband James of Charlton, with whom she lived. Deborah O’Malley, of Webster, Alan O’Malley, of Pennsylvania, and Carol Huard and her husband David, of Oxford; seven grandchildren, Rhianna Lafleche and James Lafleche, Terrye Kurtyka, Kyle Beinar, Christina Beinar, Brooklyn Huard and Jenna Huard; four great-grandchildren; her cousin, Beverly Wiggen; four nephews; and her two grandpuppies whom she adored, Toby and Oliver. Along with her parents, Pat was predeceased by her sister, Gertrude E. Levasseur.

She brought joy and laughter to everyone she met. The world was a better place with her in it. She will be deeply missed by her family.
