History of Gertrude Jensen Johansen
written by her daughter
Etta Marie Johansen Larsen

Gertrude Jensen Johansen was born in Norre Sundby, Denmark, April 30, 1869, a daughter of Simon Christian Jensen and Ane Marie Syndergaard (Sondergaard) Jensen. Around 1880 she came to America with her mother (a widow) and four brothers and one sister. Her father had died August 18, 1874 in Denmark when she was only five years old. Also, two of her older brothers had died; both in the year of 1878. One has to wonder if they died of the same illness.

They settled in Mt. Pleasant, Utah, living in a small house, on what was known as Main Street. The house was across the road from the home of grandmother's brother, Andrew Syndergaard.

Mother joined the church soon after they arrived and was baptized April 6, 1880 by L. C. Mariger. She was twenty seven when she married Niels Christian Johansen in the Manti Temple (January 1, 1896). To them were born eight children, Christella, Pearl, Heber Christian, Frances Simon, Mable, Aldeva, Lester Delbert and Etta Marie.

She died at home, Sunday August 14, 1938, after a month's illness of heart and liver complications...
