In memory of Joseph Willard Jensen. He was born in Parowan, Iron County, Utah
on May 28, 1879. He was the 7th child of Peter and Boudild Marie Jensen. His brothers
and sisters were: Andrea Christina (1867 - 1950), Peter Andrew (1867 - 1950), Heber John
(1869 - 1945), Catherine Karoline (1871 - 1917), Neils (1873 - 1962), Anna Sophia (1875 - 1951),
and Willard Augustus (1881 - 1946). All of the children were born in Parowan, Iron County, Utah.
Joseph was baptized on November 2, 1887 and endowed in February of 1958.
He married Rose Laura Koonts in Beaver City, Beaver County, Utah. He also married Margaret
Susan Hall, who I remember as my Aunt Margaret. I do not remember Rose.
Joseph died in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 9, 1956 at the age of 77.
I am the resurrection and the Life, Saith the Lord:
He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet
shall he live:
and whosoever liveth and believeth in
me shall never die.
I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall
stand at the latter day upon the earth:
and though his body be destroyed, yet shall I see GOD:
whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and
not as a stranger.
We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain
we can carry nothing out.
The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be
the name of the LORD. AMEN
