Heber John Jensen in 1905?



In memory of John Heber Jensen. He was born in Parowan, Iron County, Utah on January 27, 1869. He was the 3rd child of Peter and Boudild Marie Jensen. He was baptized on November 2, 1954 and endowed on November 2, 1954. He married Hattie Hannah Booth on June 1, 1917 in Beaver City, Beaver County, Utah.

Heber John is buried in the Richfield City Cemetery. He is in plot A.36.09.03. Both he and his wife are buried in the same plot, but the plot numbers are not the same. I don't know which is correct. The following article appeared in a Salt Lake Newspaper. John H. Jensen dies when struck by a utility bus, Suffers Skull Fracture. Mr. Jensen suffered a basal skull fracture and brain injuries when he was struck by a Salt Lake City Utility bus at 3rd West and North Temple at 3:32 P.M. Sunday, taken to Salt Lake General hospital, he died at 5:25 P.M. Mr Jensen was crossing North Temple at 3rd West when the bus driven by Melvin Gerald Mathias, 29, 265 W. 4th South hit him. Mathias told George L. Tullippe, accident investigator, that he was going north on 3rd West and started to make a left turn after waiting for a traffic light. John suffered a fractured skull, contusion and laceration of the brain. John married Vernetta Carter in Richfield in 1906. In addition to his widow he is survived by his son, Karl Jensen, Payson and a Daughter Donna Jensen, Salt Lake City. Also surviving are four brothers and one sister, J. W. Jensen, Peter A. Jensen and Mrs. Sophie Little, all of Salt Lake City; Niels Jensen, Beaver; Wilford Burnell Jensen, Los Angeles, Calif., and four grandchildren. John was a Lead Miner living in Richfield, Utah.

I am the resurrection and the Life, Saith the Lord:
He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

and though his body be destroyed, yet shall I see GOD:
whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger.

We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. AMEN
