Obituary: Jensen, Elizabeth Anne
Elizabeth Anne “Lizzie”
Elizabeth Anne Jensen, “Lizzie” passed away April 5th. Lizzie was born in Spokane, Washington September 2, 1993. She is survived by her parents John and Marcia Jensen, and brother Jimmy Jensen, Grandmothers Betty Evans, and Nancy Jensen both of Spokane, and 7 Aunts and 7 Uncles, 22 Cousins, and a chosen family of hundreds. She was preceded in death by Grandfathers Mark Evans and Werner Jensen. Lizzie was the ultimate in “special.” She deeply touched and loved all who she met, and cared for one and all. Anyone who was lucky enough to meet Lizzie, fell in love and will never forget her. In addition to her “families” she loved kitties, birds, babies, band practice, colors, songs, The Beatles, dancing, books, camping, Lizziepalooza, bike rides, The Cougs, car rides, bubblegum, candy, rainbows and Jimmy’s games. Lizzie attended Mead High School where she had a student body of friends. Faculty and students alike were drawn to Lizzie’s incredible personality and positive attitude. During her sophomore year she was elected Duchess of Mead for homecoming, and she glowed. She would much rather go to school than have a day off. She couldn’t wait for bus 84 to pick her up. She inspired, and sparkled, loving unconditionally. Lizzie never had a bad day. A Rosary Vigil will be held at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, 7 pm Thursday, April 12. Mass of Christian Burial will be Friday, April 13, St. Thomas More 11 am. In place of flowers, donations may be made to Center Pointe or The Arc of Spokane.
