Community Leader Dies At 75

TABER, ALBERTA, CANADA -- Irene Jensen of Taber passed away last Monday at the age of 75. Many local members and southern Albertans remember her dedicated service to various community organisations.

Jensen was born in Russia in 1925 and immigrated with her family in 1930. By the time she was 16, her parents moved to Taber, but soon they left for British Columbia. She opted to stay back and got work at a local restaurant. Two years later she married Elmer Jensen on what was then Dominion Day.

After returning home from Moose Jaw following the couple of years her husband served in the Air Force, she got a job at the local hospital and then later worked for 15 years in the canner until she retired in 1989.

Not only was her retirement years spent in various volunteer capacities throughout Taber, she also served as President of Royal Canadian Legion ladies Auxiliary and President of the Ladies Lions. These positions gave Jensen, a member of the Taber Alberta Stake, the opportunity to walk with the other Legion ladies in each annual parade.

Jensen, a mother of two, grandmother of five and great-grandmother of four, enjoyed knitting, crocheting, quilting, gardening, and cooking.
