BOYD HOMER JENSEN, 94, of Cardston, Alberta, died peacefully on Saturday, May 11, 2019. He was born on April 8, 1925, in Cardston, as the youngest of seven children of the late James Hyrum and Ellen (Nelly) Woodward Jensen.
For over 50 years, Boyd owned his own farm in southern Alberta. On March 30, 1950, he married Rhea Olsen in the Cardston temple; they were married for 66 years until Rhea’s death on January 6, 2017. Boyd was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served the church in many callings, including as stake missionary, in the bishopric and as a temple worker. He was a dedicated gardener and enjoyed many artistic pursuits as well, including playing the piano, singing and painting. He was always up for a drive and was well-known for teasing his family. He took immense pride in all of his grandchildren and was particularly pleased that his granddaughter Jennifer Quinton currently serves in the United States Navy.
