Jeanette McKenna was a popular and selfless carer at Whitecraigs care home in Thornliebank, where she had worked for ten years. Described as someone who was “absolutely selfless and gave love and support to all residents and families within her care”, she had recently become an internet sensation when a TikTok video of her dancing with Percy Mann, a 102-year-old care home resident, went viral.
Her son was quoted as saying, “She gave her life to protect others and pretty much that was my mum in a nutshell, as long as you’re okay she’s okay. Selfless in every way....Hero for me doesn’t quite cut it, my mum was an absolute angel.”
She passed away on Thursday 7 May 2020.
Our thoughts are with her family.
We will remember Jeanette McKenna.
