Harriet G. Jensen

 

Harriet G. Jensen, a lifelong resident of Sheboygan, passed away on September 28, 2022 at the Sheboygan Senior Community.  She was 99 years old. 

Born on July 1, 1923, Harriet was the youngest of four daughters born to Otto and Ella (Koehler) Sinn.  She attended U.S. Grant Elementary School and graduated from Sheboygan North High School with the Class of 1941.  In 1947 she married Arthur Jensen.  They were married for 53 years before he passed away in 2000. 

Harriet was a gifted seamstress.  After raising three sons and three daughters, she had a 20-year career doing alterations at J.C. Penney, where she skillfully tailored men’s suits, and altered hundreds of complicated wedding dresses. 

For more than 75 years Harriet was a faithful member of St. Luke United Methodist Church, where she had many friends and enjoyed membership in the Rachel Circle and United Methodist Women.

Harriet was preceded in death by her husband Arthur W. Jensen, and her son Erik A. Jensen.  She was also preceded in death by her parents, Otto and Ella Sinn; three sisters, Louise (Joseph) O’Toole, Florence (Paul) Merriman, and Bernice (Theron) Lewis; and two infant great-grandchildren.  She is survived by two sons, Jack (Emily) Jensen of Austin, TX, and Lars (Molly) Jensen of Shanghai, China; three daughters, Ann Jensen, Claire (David) Grohskopf of Sheboygan, and Edie (Carl) Mueller of Sheboygan; and daughter-in-law Sharron Quasius of Sheboygan.  She is further survived by 12 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren.

Harriet's family offers heartfelt thanks to the staff at Sheboygan Senior Community for the compassionate care, support and loving kindness shown to her over the years.  Special thanks to Lora and Nicole for being so attentive and always lifting her spirits.
