It is with extreme shock and sadness we share the sudden passing of our Wife, Mother and Grandmother Rhonda Louise Jakubowski (Sentes) on Monday, July 26, 2021 at the Regina Pasqua Hospital, Regina, Saskatchewan.
Rhonda was born on April 15, 1960 in Regina, Saskatchewan. She is survived by her husband of 42 years Joseph (Joe); daughter Jodi (Chad); son Jared; grandchildren Allie, Laney, Zoey, Jakub, Kayla, Brandon, Nicholas and Taylor; great-granddaughter Everlee; along with many other family members. She was predeceased by her parents Helen and Alex Sentes and her sister Lyn Robinson.
Rhonda was best known for her welcoming and caring nature. She included everyone and made them feel like family from the moment she met them. Mom always had an open-door policy, “no appointment needed”, but if given enough notice your visit would always include your favourite dish, a favourite beverage and many leftovers to take home. Laughter, conversation and great words of wisdom were also a common occurrence. Mom loved nothing more than having family and friends gathered at the lake. She loved outrageously large bonfires and great tunes on the radio. Mom took great pride in her Grandchildren and in all their accomplishments. She always had time for them.
Mom spent over 30 years working for the Regina Catholic School System. Her dedication and heart went into every student and family she came in contact with. Mom’s tiny stature was always a hit amongst any child that knew her. It seemed like the common goal was to always measure and surpass her height.
Mom touched so many lives and taught us all so many things. She was the roots and strength of our family and was always the underdogs biggest cheerleader. Family, friends and community meant everything to her.
She will be sorely missed by all that had the opportunity to know her.
We would like to thank the Regina Pasqua Hospital ER and ICU Staff. You were incredible and made Mom’s final days full of compassion, comfort and laughter prior to her unexpected passing. We truly appreciate all you did.
At Mom’s request there will be a Private Family Gathering at a later date.
Flowers gratefully declined. Donations may be made in Rhonda’s memory to Carmichael Outreach (www.carmichaeloutreach.ca).
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Rhonda Louise Jakubowski July 26th 2021..
