Mother of Monsignor Michael Jennett , Marjorie Fay Bukin, born May 18, 1920, in Luzerne, PA, daughter of Stewart and Fay Clemow entered into eternal life on October 8, 2011. The family moved to Burbank, CA in 1923. Margie married Lester Jennett (dec.) in 1940. Together they had Janice (Jennett) Steimers, Michael Jennett, and Lester Jennett, Jr. (dec.). In 1956, she married William Bukin (dec.) and they had Thomas Bukin and James Bukin (dec.). She was mother for Dennis Bukin (dec.), Bill Bukin and Anne (Bukin) Munifering.
Homemaker and telephone operator for many years, Margie retired from Pacific Bell in 1976, and she and Bill moved to Wrightwood, CA and eventually built a beautiful home in Phelan, CA in 1986. Bill died in 2001, and she moved to be with her son, Monsignor Michael Jennett in Ventura, CA, and then moved to San Roque Church in Santa Barbara in 2006.
Over the many years of countless and generous and loving sacrifices as wife and mother she also enjoyed reading (romances), sewing, painting, gardening, cooking, family dinners; and, of course, shopping and going to Church! She loved very much and deeply appreciated her daughter-in-law, Janice Jennett, so devoted to Lester and her grandchildren, Joseph and John Przyborowski and Michele (Jennett) Puglisi and Tim Jennett and her great grandchildren Dominic and Patrick Puglisi. Great gratitude is extended to the care and kindness of Dr. Mietus and the wonderful staff at Valle Verde where she spent her last three years. Also thanks to her many friends and parishioners of San Roque Parish especially, Tricia Knight and Agatha VanWingerden.
Her favorite charity was San Roque Parish. A private interment service will be held at San Fernando Mission Cemetery on Thursday, October 13. and a Memorial Mass will be celebrated at San Roque Church, Santa Barbara, CA, on Saturday, October 22,2011, at 11 :00 a.m.
