December 9, 1943 – December 16, 2013
After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Myrna Dora Jensen of Barriere BC. Myrna passed away on December 16, 2013, with family at her side.
Myrna is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Vagn Jensen, her son Stewart Jensen and her daughter Corene Jensen, her grandchildren Laurel and Barrett and her special little dog Lacey.
Myrna was born on December 9, 1943, in New Westminster, B.C. Mom lived a very full and and happy life, but unfortunately, it was a life that ended far too soon. Myrna was an avid gardener and had the amazing ability to grow the best flower and vegetable gardens around.
Mom treasured going South every winter with her husband Vagn and their dog Lacey in their RV. Mom also enjoyed camping, boating and pretty much anything to do in the outdoors especially if it was during a warm, sunny day.
Mom loved her family dearly. She was the core and the strength of our small family and we will miss her more than words can express.
At Myrna’s request, there will not be a service. The family will hold a private celebration of life in the future to honour our Mother and best friend. In lieu of flowers, we are requesting that donations be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the staff at the Kamloops Hospice House.
We would also like to thank the Barriere Lion’s Club for their generous support as well as the Barriere Community Quilters for the lovely quilt that was made for Mom.
Mom, there are no good-byes because you will be in all of our memories forever and ever…
