Obituary for Dorothea M. Jensen
Dorothea M Jensen, beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away at the age of 82, on November 13, 2010 at her home in the Golden Oaks Apartments in Frederic, WI.
She was born November 19, 1927 to Andrew and Minnie Andersen in Winside, NE. Dorothea was the youngest of four and their only daughter. On December 26, 1946 she married Dewey Jensen. In March of 1959 the family moved to a farm outside of Frederic, WI. After their children were grown the couple lived in Modesto, CA and Eugene, OR before retuning to Frederic in 1994.
Along with raising her family during her life she worked the night shift at the yoyo factory in Luck, WI, in the office of the Frederic Telephone Company, and as a teller and loan officer for various banks in Frederic, WI, Modesto, CA and Eugene, OR.
Dorothea was an active member of the Pilgrim Lutheran Church and the Paul G. Johnson American Legion Post 249 Auxiliary. Currently she was serving on the Church Council and treasurer for the Pilgrim Lutheran Church Women and the Legion Auxiliary. She was generous in volunteering her time for many of their activities such as the Women’s Circles, Memorial Day Poppy Sales and the Blood Drive.
She loved spending time with her family and being part of their lives. She enjoyed reading, growing flowers, feeding the birds, playing cards and socializing with her friends. She couldn’t pass up watching an old western movie or picking up rocks and sand from places she’d been.
Survivors include her brother, Marvin Andersen; daughters, Andrea (Thomas) Hogg and Donna (Chuck) Mattson; son, Chris (Deb) Jensen; grandchildren, Mark (Teri) Mattson, Andrew (Heidi) Hogg, Laura (Brian) Keel, Kristina (Andy) Carigiet, Kirsten (Jeremy) Lyson and Annika (David) Arrowwood; great-grandchildren, Samantha, Natalie and Joseph Mattson, Thomas Carigiet, Jeffrey Lyson, Elise Hogg and Bailey Keel; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
