Her visitation was Saturday, February 11 from 12:00 -1:00 p.m., followed by a Celebration of Life Service at 1:00 p.m., all at Trinity Lutheran Church, Carrington, with Pastor Paul Cross officiating.

Honorary pallbearers were Fourth Corporation family and friends.

She attended Beauty College in Jamestown, N.D., and took some classes at NDSU. She was bookkeeper for her father and husband's businesses for many years and worked almost 25 years for the Fourth Corporation, working with the clients she so dearly loved.

She was united in marriage to Michael Larson on July 2, 1987, in an outdoor wedding at their favorite place, the Hawks Nest. Her love of animals and nature was a most cherished part of her life that always brought a sparkle to her eyes.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Peter and Elinor "Babe" Jenson and Adam and Katie Rodacker; parents, Donald and Elma Jenson; sister, Shirley; brother Dwight and nephew, Lyle Scheck.

She preferred memorials to the James River Humane Society, Jamestown, N.D., or any humane society or shelter of your choice.
