"Pioneer Passes Away -

"Andreas Jensen, Sr one of the oldest residents of Richfield, died at his home here Sunday evening (July 5, 1925). Mr. Jensen had been ailing for the past five years, having suffered with cancer of the stomach, but was not entirely confined to his bed until the day of his death. All that physicians and the care of loving hands could do was done for Mr. Jensen but the efforts were futile.

"Mr. Jensen was born in Denmark September 12, 1858. His parents embraced the gospel and emigrated to this country with their children in 1868 in the sailing ship 'Emerald Isle.' They crossed the plains with ox teams and settled first in Parowan, moving to Richfield in 1873 where Mr. Jensen has lived ever since.

"Mr. Jensen's wife passed away six months ago, and his youngest daughter about two months ago. Of his five brothers, only one survives, Rasmus Jensen of this city. The following children survive and were all with him at the time of his death: Owen Jensen of Monroe, Andreas, Jr., Eugene, Walter, Claud and Loral Jensen, and Mrs. Andrew Christensen, all of this city.

"Funeral services were held in the First ward chapel Wednesday afternoon (July 8, 1925), Bishop F M Ogden in charge."

Richfield Reaper, July 9, 1925, 4.
