Obituary for Kenna Larue Jensen Prestwich

Contributor: Todd Millett Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Kenna Larue Jensen Prestwich September 30, 1930 - October 9, 2015 Kenna Larue Jensen Prestwich returned to her heavenly home on October 9, 2015 after a 12- year battle fighting the devastating disease of dementia. She died in her own home surrounded by her caretakers, her daughters. She was born on September 30, 1930 to Calvin Christian Jensen and Edith Osborne. Kenna married the love of her life, Morris Keith Prestwich, on October 29, 1949. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with four children: Dennis (Cheri), Marjean (Jerry Sorensen), Craig (Raquel), and Ellen (Joel Knighton). Kenna grew up in the small town of Clawson in Emery County. At the age of 18, she and her mother boarded a bus and headed to San Francisco to attend dental assistant school. This must have been an adventure for a small farm girl living in San Francisco. This experience became one of the last memories to leave her. She enjoyed many years working in the dental field. Kenna's greatest joy and most prized possession was her family which includes 21 grandchildren, 52 great-grandchildren, with two more on the way, and 4 great-great-grandchildren. Her children and grandchildren have a lot of great memories of Christmas Eves, family fun at the cabin, sleepovers and parties with grandma and family dinners in her home. She had a strong work ethic and passed that on to her children. She opened her doors to many nieces and nephews who spent time on the farm in Mapleton. She loved keeping beautiful flower gardens, reading books, traveling, and journaling the important events in her life. She was proud of her heritage and had a great love for antiques. She had a beautiful alto voice and did a lot of singing. She was a loyal friend to many, including her beloved childhood friend, Val Jean "Curley" Curtis. Kenna was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served willingly and lovingly in many different church callings. However, serving in the Jordan River Temple was her favorite. The Temple brought a lot of peace into her life and she loved the years she was able to spend serving within its walls. Among her loved ones that greeted her on the other side was her husband Keith, who preceded her in death in 1988. She was also greeted by her family, which included her mother and father, Calvin and Edith, her sister LaVer Nielsen, her brothers Don, Max and Coy Jensen. Being the baby of her family and the last one to leave this earth made it a joyous reunion. She was also preceded in death by two great-grandchildren Adam Gabriel Prestwich and Calvin Josiah Prestwich, whom she will now have the chance to know and love. The family would like to express their appreciation and thanks to Heidi from Heartwood Hospice and Anna, Jessica, Annette, and Mike from Peak Specialty Group. At mom's request, a private family viewing will take place prior to the services. Funeral services will be held, Thursday, October 15, 2015, 11:00 a.m., Sky Drive LDS Church building, 4147 West Sky Drive (9800 S) South Jordan. Immediately following the funeral, a luncheon will be held for the family at the church. Interment will follow at 3:00 p.m. in the Orem City Cemetery, 1520 N 800 E Orem, UT. In lieu of flowers the family suggests that donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association Utah Chapter in the name of Kenna Prestwich. http://www.alz.org/utah/

Life timeline of Kenna L. Prestwich (Jensen)

Kenna L. Prestwich (Jensen) was born on 30 Sep 1930
Kenna L. Prestwich (Jensen) was 11 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Kenna L. Prestwich (Jensen) was 25 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California. The Disneyland Hotel is a resort hotel located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, owned by the Walt Disney Company and operated through its Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products division. Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
Kenna L. Prestwich (Jensen) was 39 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
Kenna L. Prestwich (Jensen) was 43 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
Kenna L. Prestwich (Jensen) was 59 years old when The tanker Exxon Valdez spilled 10.8 million US gallons (260,000 bbl; 41,000 m3) of oil into Prince William Sound, Alaska, causing one of the most devastating man-made maritime environmental disasters. A tanker is a ship designed to transport or store liquids or gases in bulk. Major types of tankship include the oil tanker, the chemical tanker, and gas carrier. Tankers also carry commodities such as vegetable oils, molasses and wine. In the United States Navy and Military Sealift Command, a tanker used to refuel other ships is called an oiler but many other navies use the terms tanker and replenishment tanker.
Kenna L. Prestwich (Jensen) was 61 years old when The World Wide Web is opened to the public. The World Wide Web (WWW), also called the Web, is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), interlinked by hypertext links, and accessible via the Internet. English scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN in Switzerland. The browser was released outside CERN in 1991, first to other research institutions starting in January 1991 and to the general public on the Internet in August 1991.
