Donna Jensen, 88, of Spearfish, SD, formerly of Sorum, SD, passed away peacefully on September 4, 2019.
She was born on October 29, 1930, to Albert and Ada Grove and grew up in Bison, SD. She was united in marriage to the love of her life, Howard Jensen, on July 2, 1948, in Belle Fourche, SD. To this union were born six children, Dee Dee, Rhonda, Doug, LuAnn, Nancee, and Jeff.
Donna was well known for her fabulous cooking and entertaining (especially making chocolate chip cookies for the grandkids), her love of playing games, listening to big band music, and going out dancing on Saturday nights with her husband and friends. She was a firm believer in no matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up with lots of sparkle. Donna loved her husband, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, family and friends so well and so much and she will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her children, Dee Dee (Al) Page, Rhonda (Les) Page, LuAnn (Les) Schroeder, Nancee (Pat) Kinghorn, and Jeff (Christine) Jensen, 14 grandchildren, and 24 great grandchildren, and one sister, Delores Garcia.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Howard, and her son, Doug (Myla).
In accordance with Donna’s wishes, a celebration of her life will take place at a later date.
Arrangements are under the care of Leverington Funeral Home of the Northern Hills of Belle Fourche. In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established to Hospice of the Northern Hills.
