In Memory of June Jensen
June Alicia Jensen, age 54, of Amery, Wisconsin passed away at home on Sunday, April 12th, 2020.
June was born October 28th, 1965 in St. Paul, Minnesota to Rose and LeRoy Jensen. Throughout her life, June lived in various cities in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Ohio. She truly enjoyed working with and helping the elderly through her career as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). June’s passion and calling for her career began in 1993 and continued on and off until 2019. June endured a 6 year battle with breast cancer that began with her first diagnosis of invasive breast cancer in 2015. Over the years she underwent a double mastectomy, chemo therapy, radiation and hormone therapy in an effort to overcome the cancer. After a short stint in remission, she was diagnosed with HER2+ cancer in 2019. June fought a long, hard fight and never lost hope of beating her illness.
June was preceded in death by her mother, Rose (Cady) Jensen and father, LeRoy Jensen.
She is survived by her children, AnnieJo (Jimmy) Stellato of Newark, TX; Betsy Jensen of Clear Lake, WI; Tim (Christy) West of Clear Lake, WI and Stephan West of Amery, WI. She is also survived by her siblings, Linda Jensen (Shirl Gumpke) of Amery, WI; James (Caleste) Jensen of New Richmond, WI and Alex Jensen of New Richmond, WI and Char (Troy) Stokes of Chetek, WI. June is survived by 9 grandchildren: Peyton Stellato, Ayden Gardner, Giavanna Stellato, Vivianna Stellato, Samantha Kichler, Brianna Gerde, Stewart Austin, Sean Singh and Lillie West.
She will also be missed by many friends, co-workers and other family members. Per her wishes, June will be cremated.
A Memorial Service will be announced at a later date.
