Sherman Arthur Jensen

Sherman Arthur Jensen, 84, returned to our Father in Heaven after a full and happy life on Feb. 20, 2013.

He was born on Sept. 4, 1928, to Leah Viola Wilson and Thorvald Arthur Jensen. He was born, lived, loved and died in Lyman. He received his draft notice the day he married Gloria Shurtleff on Nov. 18, 1950. He served our country from 1950-1952 fighting in three of the four major battles of the Korean War.

He supported his wife and six children by working for FMC for 41 years. In 1967, he gained a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His family became an eternal family on Feb. 20, exactly 46 years to the day he died. He served as executive secretary, ward clerk, high priest group leader and worked in the Ogden Temple.

He loved the mountains, hunting, fishing, camping, boating, and sports, especially basketball. His fun personality will be missed by all.

He is survived by his wife Gloria; children Bradley and (Karen) Jensen, of Albuquerque, N.M., Jeani and (Ernie) Field, of Syracuse, Utah, Bruce Jensen, of Salt Lake City, Utah, Jolane and (Jeff ) Thornock, of Fruit Heights, Utah; Brian and (Alysia) Jensen, of Lyman, and Colette and (Randy ) Christopherson, of Lyman; two brothers, Allen (Gwnda) and Craig (Judy); sister-in- law Sharon; 23 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father; two brothers, Udell and Rodney; and a sister, Eileen. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23, at 2 p.m. at the Lyman LDS Ward Chapel. A viewing will be held on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the ward chapel, as well as one hour prior to services. Interment will follow services at the Lyman City Cemetery.
