Gerald Eugene Jensen, 86, formerly of Gladstone, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City, died Tuesday, November 17, 2015 and was joined by his wife, Evon Carol Jensen, 72, on November 23, following the last Sunday after Pentecost.
Jerry was born on April 21, 1929, the son of Chester Amil Jensen and Nina Amber (Kinkaid) Jensen of Coleridge, Nebraska. Evon was born on November 9, 1943, the daughter of Arnold Johannes Daberkow and Mildred Caroline Johanna (Ropers) Daberkow in West Point, Nebraska. Jerry and Evon were married on July 11, 1964 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in rural Beemer, Nebraska.
They are survived by their children, Clint Alan Jensen of Madison, Wisconsin, Dustin Gregory Jensen Adams and wife, Laura, of Kansas City, Missouri, Rodney Wade Jensen and wife, Laura, of Plano, Texas, Douglas Paul Jensen and wife, Diana, of Greenville, South Carolina, Susan Amber Jensen, of Alabaster, Alabama, and Gordon Eugene Jensen and wife, Heather, of Crescent, Iowa; eight grandchildren; and seven great grandchildren. They are preceded in death by their son, Daniel Wayne Jensen.
Jerry and Evon were salt of the earth in savoring family and suffering loss. Jerry served in the US Navy, and was a veteran of the Korean War. He was a career employee with AT&T. Upon retiring, Jerry volunteered nearly three decades with Meals on Wheels. Evon was devoted and ever resourceful as the cornerstone of the household, and as the president’s secretary with the Northland Chamber of Commerce and Northland National Bank. Jerry and Evon were grateful members of King of Kings Lutheran Church of Kansas City.
