Janet Faye Jensen

June 3, 1947 — February 18, 2022

Janet Faye Jensen was born June 3, 1947 to the late Glenn and Lorraine (Petersen) Larsen in Exira, Iowa. She was baptized and confirmed at Bethany Lutheran Church in Kimballton. She graduated from Elk Horn High School with the Class of 1965.

On June 26, 1965, Janet was united in marriage with Donald Jensen at Bethany Lutheran Church. To this union, three children were born: Amy, Jerod and Corey. They made their home in Elk Horn, Iowa.

Janet worked at Salem Lutheran Home in Elk Horn until her retirement on March 13, 2015. During her employment there she worked as a Certified Nurse's Aide and the supervisor of maintenance, laundry and housekeeping. She was a lifetime member of Bethany Lutheran Church and helped with meals in her church ladies' group for many years.

In earlier years, Janet and Don loved attending dances. Janet enjoyed going to garage sales, sewing, reading books, cooking, canning and playing cards. She was an avid gardener and she had many flowers around the house, especially roses. She also enjoyed going camping with her family and watching her grandchildren's activities. Janet had a strong faith in her Lord and she cherished her family more than anything.
