JENSEN

MILDRED WRIGHT JENSEN, beloved wife of the late Brent Jensen, passed away on the morning of October 30, 2017, in the Raymond Alberta Hospital, at the age of 87 years. She slipped peacefully away after an extended illness. Mildred was born in Lethbridge, Alberta on March 12, 1930, the youngest child of James Ninian Wright and Mary Carbert Wright. She spent most of her young life growing up in Raymond. At the tender age of ten she and her siblings lost their mother to pneumonia, and while they endured the hardships of not having their mother in their lives, they benefited from and enjoyed the love and support of wonderful friends in Raymond. She and her older sister Rose were especially loyal loving sisters who sustained each other through difficulties, and both, being blessed with the gift of pleasantness and a great shared sense of humor, created happiness all around them. She was sealed to her eternal companion, Brent Walton Jensen in the Cardston Temple. She was the love of his life as he was hers. Together, they lived in Raymond and raised their family. Mildred was a loving and devoted wife and mother. Her family’s home was full of her warmth, her good cheer and natural mirth. Mildred loved being a mother and her mothering extended to all who knew her. Her home was filled with the good smells of her delicious baking and she always had something wonderful to feed any family or guests. Her love touched every family member and she knew and loved each one well. She is remembered fondly by former Raymond Hospital staff and patients for her many years of service there. Since the passing of her husband, Brent, in 1991, she has devoted herself to her children and grandchildren. Mildred is survived by children Rick (Charlotte) Jensen of Raymond, Alberta, Dianne (Bob) Larson of Whitefish, Montana, Ken Jensen of Raymond, Alberta, and Dennis (Kelly) Jensen of Raymond, Alberta. She has 21 grandchildren and 49 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Brent on November 26, 1991, her great- grandchild, Eva Louise Jensen, her sister Rose, and her brothers Jim and Basil.

Mildred, Mom, Grandma, Aunt Milly, is dearly loved and will be missed, but all sorrow is swallowed up in the thoughts of the joyous reunion between her and her loved ones. Thank you to the people serving at Good Sams for their kindness during Mildred’s final years. We are grateful to the staff and doctors at the Raymond Hospital for their loving care in her final days.
