Age 85, of Hillsdale, formally of Durand, went to be with our Lord Tuesday, July 30, 2019.

She was the daughter of Leonard and Harriet Davis, one of 14 children. She was married for 53 years to Clifford Jensen Jr.; together they raised nine children.

Mrs. Jensen participated in countless volunteer and social activities, including girl scout leader, Special Olympics volunteer, bowling teammate, high school sports and band booster, a member the Clio Moose Lodge and member of the Durand First Baptist Church, on whose behalf she organized and led Sunday worship services at the Durand Convalescent Home for many years.

In 1975, Mrs. Jensen was recognized for her many philanthropic endeavors as the Shiawassee County Woman of the year.

Many will fondly remember her pride in her garden fresh, from-scratch cooking and her passion for board games, sports, and singing. A less known pursuit was her consistent and quiet generosity to those in need.
