Punky was born August 29, 1950 in St. Cloud to Raymond and Marian (Kutz) Roering.  She married Ronald Jenderseck on July 18, 1970 in Waite Park.  Punky worked as a daycare provider for many years and her love for children was always evident.  The children she had under her care adored her.  Her patient demeanor and ability to relate to children made parents confident their children were receiving wonderful care.  Later she worked at the Fairfield Inn.  Her hard-working attitude was always evident.  She was a member of the Waite Park American Legion Unit #428 and the Disabled Veterans Auxiliary.

Punky enjoyed spending time with family and friends, going on cruises with Ron and sharing her love of baking. Punky will be remembered as an empathetic wife, mother and grandmother who loved with all her heart. Her charisma, spirit, and spunkiness will always be remembered.

Survivors include her husband of 50 years, Ron; children, Nikki (Lee) Kantor, Rogers, Sara, Sauk Rapids; grandsons, Caleb, Austin, Mason, and Trace; sisters Jan (Allen) Wentland St. Cloud, Cheryl Healy, Battle Creek, MI, Sheila (Bill) Nierenhausen, Waite Park, Lynn (Charlie) Koerner, Rice; brothers, Ron (Tonette Kieke), St. Augusta, Keith, Waite Park; and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Punky worked with my sister and always treated her like family. It's because of Punky that my sister could grow and blossom into a more confident version of herself and was safe and happy thanks to her watching out for my sister. I am just devastated to hear of her passing... Heaven may have gained a new angel, but the world is a little dimmer now having lost this light.
