Obituary for Lois Jensen

Lois Jensen
After a long struggle with Alzheimer's, Lois Irene Jensen, age 87, passed away peacefully in her sleep at Mercy Hospital in Dubuque, IA with her two eldest children by her side.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, April 21 at Grand View United Methodist Church with the Rev. Tom Shinkle officiating. A visitation will be held from 9-10:45 a.m., Saturday at the church. Burial will be held at a later date. The Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Westview Funeral Home and Crematory is assisting the family.

Lois was born on September 25th, 1930 in LaCrosse, WI to Kenneth and Marguerite (Dikeman) Kemper. In 1946 she stole the heart of James "Jim" Jensen with her charms and upon his return from the Marine Corp they were wed on July 16th, 1948 in the University Chapel at The Wesley Foundation in Madison, WI.

Lois was a devoted wife, loving mother, and doting grandma who would do anything for her family and friends. She enjoyed reading and houseplants. Lois was known by many for her excellent cooking skills. She made a mean Southern fried chicken and her pies were outstanding. She spent hours each year making gift boxes filled with her homemade cookies and candies. She was an accomplished seamstress making clothes and costumes for family members. Lois was extremely talented with a crochet hook. She made exquisite baby blankets for all her grandchildren and her nieces and nephews children.

In addition to raising her four children, she went to Fennimore Vocational College and then worked as a secretary at LCC, Inc and Wisconsin Job Service in Lancaster, WI and also at Mutual of Omaha in Omaha, NE.

Lois is survived by her husband, Jim; her children: Dean (Lori), Barb (Dwayne) Holliday, Donald (Josefa), and Laura (Larry) Salopek; her grandchildren: Javier, Alex (Lily), Dean, Adam, Mitchel, and Katie; and great grandson, Felix. Lois was preceded in death by her siblings: Phyllis Garthwaite, Joyce (Gerald) Pluemer, and Wendell "Butch" Pien.

Memorials may be given to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America at alzfdn.org.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at Mercy Hospital and Oak Park Place in Dubuque for the tremendous care and compassion shown to Lois and her family.
