Florene Roundy Jensen was born November 9th, 1939, in Eugene, Oregon, to Floyd and Myla Roundy. She joined her older brother Rodney to make a family of four. They moved to Lynndyl, Utah, when she was three and then to Mendon when she was nine, where she lived for many years. In grade school she learned to play the piano and was a cheerleader. She also played the drums in high school. She married Frank Christiansen when she was 17 and had four children, Donnette, Neal, Janna and Tara. She and Frank were later divorced. She married Darwin Jensen in 1968 and along with Darwin came two more children, Lisa and Carlos. They moved to Providence and built a home there. It was a busy time raising six children, one in every grade from kindergarten to fifth. She was a wonderful mom, always sewing matching outfits for the four girls, cooking, playing games and camping. She has always had dogs and tons of birdfeeders. She spent many years rock hunting with her family, making jewelry, creating beautiful flower arrangements and collecting antiques. She worked at the USU library and then for many years as a phlebotomist at Logan Hospital where she made many lifelong friends. Her family has grown to 80, including 20 grandchildren and 32 great grandchildren with twins on the way. We will celebrate her birthday with a family Dutch oven dinner. Happy 80th Birthday Mom! We love you!
