Winnie ETHEL (Parker) Jensen was a twin to Wesley ERNEST Parker & they were born in Iowa. She grew up in Spencer, but in 1913 the family moved to Nebraska & settled on ranch land north of Morril in Sioux County. She married Jens Jensen on November 6, 1915 at the age of 22. They raised 5 children. She worked hard canning meat, peaches, cherries, tomatoes & pickles. In the hot summer months, she baked hundreds of loaves of bread, worked in the garden & raised chickens. They sold their farm in 1965. After the death of her husband, she moved to Texas to be near family. She is remembered as a tiny frail woman who took great pride in her children & who dearly loved her parents & brothers & sisters. She was a sensitive, tenderheated person who was quick to forgive.
