Mr. Jensen was a member of the family of the late Soren Jensen which for many years was active in political and community affairs. The family of 13 boys and girls all remained in the county and raised families of their own and became a dominant force in many community activities. The annual Jensen family picnic, which was scheduled for last Sunday and cancelled because of his death on Saturday, was one of the affairs which always brought together several hundred persons – all related.
