  3. We send our love to everyone whose lives were touched by Mary, especially her wonderful family. She was a beautiful, open hearted lady and I’m so glad I was given the chance to get to know her. My family have so many fond memories of summer lunches and BBQ’s at the Dykstra house. I have a pile of her knitted wash cloths in my cupboard which are now even more precious than before.

I too have dishcloths that she was always busy making. So nice to spend holiday meals with her and Alf over the years. I miss them both. May you all find comfort in your family and have the strength to carry on.

    Tribute To Mrs. Jensen
    I was shocked to learn the sudden departure of exceptionally great personality Mrs. Dawn Mary Jensen, a beloved wife of late Mr. Alf Jensen. What a perfect couple Mr. Alf Jensen and Mrs. Mary Jensen I ever known.
    Mary was so caring, thoughtful and she had warm and welcoming heart for everybody. Mary’s attributive aspect of life will be source of strength to me. She will always be in my memories.
    I was so privileged to enjoy Mary’s motherly hug, a mother son relationship. It is so wonderful and it will always be in my heart.
    My thoughts and prayers are with Jensen family. Please accept my sincere condolences. May Lord grant union to the departed soul in His Divine abode and peace and comfort to the Jensen family and close relatives.
