JENSEN; Mary Edna (nee Taylor)
Mary Edna Jensen passed away peacefully surrounded by family on January 21st, 2016. She will be remembered for having the heart of an angel and for her quiet and ever-loving nature. Mary was born in Edmonton, Alberta. She moved to Chilliwack with her family in the 1950’s, where she finished her schooling. She then worked in the family store in Vedder Crossing, where she met her husband Warner. Mary devoted her life to her family. She spent endless hours driving to swim meets and hockey tournaments, keeping the books for the family businesses, and providing a happy, welcoming place for friends and family to gather. Home-made chocolate cookies were always on the kitchen counter. After raising their children in Hope, she and Warner moved to Chilliwack where she found joy with her grandchildren and her puppies. Mary loved walking the dogs in the morning and chatting with her fellow dog-walking friends. Mary travelled throughout much of Canada and the States with Warner in their big rig before retirement. More recently, cruises took Mary, along with Warner, Terry and dear friend Cynthia, to Alaska, Hawaii and through the Panama Canal. Mary is survived by Warner, her loving husband of 49 years, her children Angela (Scott), Darren (Lorna) and Darrel (Robin), brother Terry, grandchildren Tricia, Sierra and Kate, and step-grandchildren Michaella and Keeley, plus extended family and dear friends. Internment and celebration of life will take place on a future date.
