In Memoriam

We are sad to announce the passing of our wife and mother, Dorothy Jenson. She died peacefully in her home on Sunday, August 21, 2016 at the age of 61 due to advanced stage cholangiocarcinoma, a rare form of bile duct and liver cancer.

Dorothy touched many lives through her work as an artist, through her lifetime of service in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and all those who knew her as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, aunt, neighbor and friend.

A memorial service honoring Dorothy's life will be held on Tuesday, August 23, at 11:00 am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint meeting house located at 14340 Donovan Road, Oregon City, Oregon 97045.

Dorothy loved flowers and the outdoors, which will be celebrated at the memorial. Donations of live plants for a memorial garden can be delivered at the service or sent to 37213 NE Vernon Rd, Washougal, WA 98671. In lieu of sending plants, Dorothy would ask that you paint a picture, take a walk with a loved one, or read a book to a child in her memory.

We appreciate and welcome the sharing of memories and photos on this memorial account for Dorothy.

With gratitude for her life and legacy,

The Ken Jenson Family


  1. The Memorial Service for Dorothy was so beautiful. Her life was so wonderfully Shared in life and her death. Thank you for letting me take a peaceful watercolor for our home and a small tomato painting for Liberty. I am mailing something for the Memory Garden. My love to the family. Sister Joan Chelson
