Obituary for Ross Andrew Jensen

Fantin’s Funeral Chapel
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ross Andrew Jensen of the MD of Pincher Creek on April 28, 2021, at the age of 90.

Ross was born on May 10, 1930, in Taber, Alta., to parents Nephi and Ivy Jensen. He was raised with an appreciation for hard work, love of the land and the caring of family.

On Feb. 3, 1949, Ross married Marion Beatrice Myers. In 1958, they moved from Taber to their farm on Rock Creek Road near Lundbreck, where they raised their four children.

Ross‘s greatest love was his family and his animals. He enjoyed hunting, ranching, playing the organ and entertaining all with his rendition of “Popeye the Sailor Man!”

Ross leaves behind his four children, Doug (Joan), David, Danny (Donna) and Nancy (Carmen) Rinke; nine grandchildren, Vicki (Glen) Smyth, Cindy (Steve) Fix, Sherry Jensen (Valerie Brown), Tammy (Jason) Jack, Bev Parker, James (Tammy) Jensen, Dayna (Kevin) Rogalsky, Colter Rinke and Jared Rinke; 16 great-grandchildren, Nadine and Natalee Smyth, Ryan and Raegan Fix, Skylar Jack, Macey Jo Friel and Taylor, Brayden and Mia Jensen, Tatiana, Jack and Hudson Rinke, Ashlynn Rinke, and Gavin, Morgan and Alexa Rogalsky; sisters Shirley (Bill) Stoltz and Darlene Layton; sister-in-law Betty Gilbert; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Ross was predeceased by his wife of 54 years, Marion Beatrice Jensen; his parents, Nephi James and Ivy Annie Jensen; brothers Marion, Fred, Roy and Walter Jensen; an infant sister, Thelma; brother-in-law Richard Layton; and grandson Andy Jensen and family: Shelley, Allan and Amanda.

Ross is dearly loved and will be missed by all who knew him. He was laid to rest beside his beloved Marion in the Fairview Cemetery in Pincher Creek.

Ross’s family would like to thank Dr. Bell and the many nurses and home-care ladies who took such good care of him.
