To all the Jensen children our hearts are aching for your loss. The sun shines a little less brighter today with out your sweet Mom. She taught me so much she was an amazing cook and there was nothing she couldn’t make come alive out of wood. Shona was one of the most talented women I will ever know. We loved living next door to her and your sweet family in South Jordan. She loved all of you very much and was such a
sweet neighbor. She shared her favorite recipes with us. She was so willing to give anything she had to help anyone. We love you all, our hearts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Your sweet Mom will always be close to you.
