Lettie Webb passed away peacefully on June 15, 2008 in Reno, NV. In her final days she had been surrounded by her family recounting their love for her and her love for them. She was born in Negaunee, MI on April 14, 1909 to Ernest and Gertrude (Broad) Geraghty and moved with her family to Ely, NV at the age of nine.

When Lettie was in junior high school she was always asked to serve at formal dinner parties at the home of Vail Pittman who became Governor of Nevada in 1945.

After graduating from White Pine County High School Lettie went to work for the Ely Telephone Company as an operator.

In 1934 Lettie married Harold Jensen, a local pharmacist, and they moved to Reno where they raised their two sons, Bruce and Tom. Lettie and Harold spent many happy years taking neighborhood children to watch the Reno Silver Sox baseball games and watching their own sons play Little League and Babe Ruth.

Harold died in 1964 and a few years later Lettie married Carlton Webb who was a wonderful Grampa to her grandchildren.

Lettie was in charge of the New Accounts Department at Nevada National Bank until retiring in 1974. She was an active member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Reno and volunteered for many years at their local thrift shop. She enjoyed conversation with people of all ages and was famous for her quick wit and warm personality. Her family and friends feel so fortunate to have been a part of her life.

Lettie is preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, Harold Jensen; her second husband, Carl Webb; her son, Tom Jensen; her brothers, Cecil, Tom and Jack Geraghty and sisters, Jean Brant and Bernice Lake.

She is survived by her son, Bruce Jensen (Lona) of Danville, CA; daughter-in-law, Suzanne Jensen of Reno; grandchildren, Rick Jensen (Dawn) of Renton, WA, Debbie Swisher (John) of Fallon and Andy Jensen (Stephanie) of Reno, Bruce Jensen Jr. (Kirsten) of Brentwood, CA; great-grandchildren, Hannah and Tommy Jensen of Renton, WA, Jack, Zoey and Will Swisher of Fallon, Bailey and Zack Jensen of Reno and Blake, Garrett, and Lauren Jensen of Brentwood, CA.

The family will schedule a private graveside service at a later date.
