Our much-loved mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend penned her own obituary as follows:
In checking the "Obits" today, I find I'm there! I passed on May 8, 2023. Welcoming me home are my Savior, Jesus Christ; husband, Kirk Stephens Jensen; parents, Cassie Ann Jensen Walker and Melvin Hyrum Walker; four sisters including twin and guardian angel Carmen; one brother; granddaughter, Rachel Jensen and many more relatives and friends. I temporarily leave my children-Cherie (Jan) Yates, Tamara (Bryce) Lemon, Tina Liddiard, Stephen (Karen) Jensen, 17 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
My birth was on April 5, 1936 in Pocatello, Idaho. Most important to me during my life were my family, the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, my friends, country and community. My faith in Jesus Christ was simple and pure and hopefully my life reflected my commitment in service to my fellow men - be they family, friend or foe. I served where I was called and as I was prompted. Studying and pondering the Gospel with an open mind, honest heart and with great faith was my delight. I loved to teach and share the Gospel of Christ. I lived after the manner of happiness.
If one sentence could summarize my life, I'd hope it would be, "She was without guile". When I stand before God, I hope to report that I have not a single talent left and that I can say, "I used everything you gave me."
Hope springs eternal. Of this I have no doubt.
