Glenora S Jensen

Glenora Sylvia Jensen passed away on April 12, 2022, at the age of 91 at her residence at Creekstone Care Assisted Living and has joined our Lord & Savior in Heaven.  Although she is gone from us now, she leaves behind a legacy of love & faith that will continue-on through her children, grandchildren, great- grandchildren, & great-great-grandchildren.

Glenora was born to parent’s Glenn & Sylvia Wentworth on April 28, 1930, in Ellensburg, Washington. She spent her youth growing up in Seattle and attended Lincoln High School.

Glenora was very artistic and ran a successful cake-decorating business, teaching classes to professional bakers in the greater-Seattle area.  Her talents caught the attention of many, which landed her a guest appearance on the Seattle Today show hosted by Cliff Lenz in the 1980’s.

Glenora loved her family and will be best remembered by all to be an unabashed woman of faith, who enthusiastically would share Christ’s message to those around her.  When she could no longer physically go to Church, she would send those she had converted to the Lord to her Church, Riverview Baptist in Pasco.  One day when she was listening to the Pastor on the radio, he mentioned Glenora saying that “I can only hope that if I ever get to be her age that I would be just as excited to share the Lord with people as she”.

Glenora leaves behind her children, Frank, Deborah, Julie & Greg, and was preceded in death by her son Glenn Aff, first husband Frank Aff & later Richard Jensen.

A funeral service is scheduled for 1:00pm sharp at Einan’s Funeral Home on May 5,  2022
Address is:  915 Bypass Hwy, Bldg H, Richland, WA  99352
There will be a catered lunch immediately following the service at the facility.

  • Glenora I already miss you. Mornings and nights are not the same without you. I miss saying good morning and good night. I miss saying I love you and you saying it back. The house feels lonely without my favorite lady there to bring me up if I’m having a stressful day. You always had a hug and a prayer for me. While my stress was not for you, you still kept me in your thoughts. I thank you for that. I miss all of our conversations and your talks about your farm, the constant hallmark movies we would watch and sweet home Alabama I introduced you too. I miss your sweet smile and you will always have a special place in my heart. Rest in peace beautiful we will see each other again.
    Love Always your caregiver

  • As I was the Oldest son by 5 minutes, I got to see a mother ask God in her life, where I got to See the Lord transform her through the years.
    Mom was all for the under dog, we’re she would work with them and even take in different people in.
    There would be times where Mom and I we have difficult arguments, but we always listen to each other and gave each other a hug and we both would pray for each other,
    Mom would ask about her kids,grandchild, her great grandkids and Great, great grand kids , Mom said she would pray for them all.
    Mom also had the love for her animals, cats, Dogs horses goat, Peacocks Docks , where one day my Dad came home and no more animals.
    It’s a great joy to have a Mom that love the Lord,
    Love much son Frank M. Aff

  • The gifts that bind us. While we have our differences, it’s apparent that we’re family when you witness the love of people, humor, and good food that we share when we’re together. From my earliest memories I recall extended family regularly gathering in the daylight basement, around the dinner table, and the Christmas tree at our grandparent’s home in Mountlake Terrace. I smile as I remember the giant teddy bear that grandma purchased (and apparently transported on her school bus) for me when I was born. Lots of memories of great meals, cake decorating, and worship music filling the house on Sunday mornings. As a child I often viewed grandma as the enforcer who would keep us in line, but as I reflect on her now, I realize how often she also laughed (which I often recall of Grandpa), and she smiled, loved, and encouraged us as family. As an adult I noticed how she showered me and others in compliments and encouragement whenever we’d visit. During a visit last summer, I was so touched that she recalled so many details about what was happening in my life. We shared a hug and a few laughs in a tender moment as she enjoyed a cheeseburger and a chocolate shake and told me about some of the exciting things that God was doing in and through her life. Grandma was a prayer warrior that shared the love of Christ with anyone that He placed in her path! I can’t imagine how hard it was for grandma to lose grandpa at such a young age, but I’m certain the reunion with the Lord and both of her loving husbands has been sweet. Until we see them ourselves, the love, courage, and laughter that we’ve inherited will help us remember her as we share those gifts with those that God places in our path.

  • I was fortunate to be related to Glenora,
    It started early for me.
    I have been told I had difficulty learning to walk. My Aunt I was told gave me a broom handle.
    It worked. I have not stopped walking sense.

    My 1st Job was a journal route in the Mountlake terrace neighborhood.
    Tend to think it may have been one of my cousins paper routes.
    I would walk or get a ride from my Mom.
    My aunt was so cordial and let me hang at the house when I waited for my Mom.
    She never complained. Lots of good memories of hanging out at her home.
    So grateful . Another memory was a present she gave my Mom I think at Christmas.
    Our Toy poodle Peppy. She gave him to Mom in a decorated hand bag.
    I taught Peppy to sleep at the end of my bed. He was a great dog.
    When I got Married she made our wedding cake! She was amazingly talented.
    Aunt Glenora was a blessing to me.

  • I first remember my Auntie Glenora as an animal lover. Long before my own daughters got in touch with their farmer sides, Auntie Glenora introduced me to goats and chickens, ponies and horses, dogs and kitties and lots of other critters. I’m pretty sure in heaven, she’ll be there lying with the lion and the lamb. She also had the home I remember as a kid, as being kid heaven. Always special birthday parties, Halloween parties and just plain fun. She was so very loving to all of us. Now the other thing I remember, because I’m a “foodie”, is her good cooking. Now the contest goes on with the Zoerb’s and the Aff’s about whose cooking is the best, but lets just say she was one of the best and passed that on to her kids and grandkids. My dear Auntie, in heaven your father will be serving you at His big table. Thank you for the beautiful memories. Love, Christi

  • My Auntie Glenora has always been one of the most loving people I have known. When I was a child she and Uncle Frank provided a safe place for my siblings and I after my father died. She always had a knack for making a person feel like they were the most important person, when she visited with them. She gathered people around her that needed love and exhibited true Godly love by listening and not judging. Love you Auntie, until we meet again.

  • My precious sister Glenora was always there for me as a child. She was the big sister who protected and defended me. She would lead me into sticker bushes to find the biggest back berries so our mother could bake a yummy pie.
    As adults we were Maid of Honor at one anothers weddings and I got to baby sit the twins and Deborah.
    We vacationed together from family camp at Warm Beach to Hawaii and Florida. She and Frank nurtured my children after the loss of their dad. We laughed together and cried together through many years. Until we meet again you have gained your eternal crown. I Love you to the moon and on to heaven. Dolores

  • I met Mom when I was 16 yrs old after I started going out with Greg. I remember her being so warm and inviting in her home. Before Greg and I got married I use to call her Mrs Aff . After I got married we were always visiting Mom and Dad all the time, going out to the Snohomish house (farm) she loved animals so much that she adopted many animals, including horses! She always made it fun to come over especially when we had parties there. Mom and I shared many hobbies including going to garage sales, or going to goodwill which she always found great deals. When my son Jacob was born he had really bad colic and she would sit and rock him until he wasn’t so fussy. Mom always had a lot of energy I’m way younger and I had to keep up with her lol. She has always treated me as family and I have always loved her for that. Her Christian faith has been amazing throughout her life and the way she would lead others to the Lord, I was so impressed by watching her with others. Love you Mom

  • I feel very blessed to have her as my Mom, and have many fond memories of her. Being the youngest, I remember after my older siblings were sent off to school, she would take me in our van to either get breakfast at Sambos or take a drive to Sears & Roebucks near Greenwood. I remember her favorite (and mine) were chocolate covered raisins, and she would head straight to the candy counter at Sears and ask for a bag.
    I also remember how much she loved driving school bus, because she loved kids. Particularly one’s that were tough to handle. I remember her taking “The Yellow Zonker” school bus to the donut-shop and treating the entire busload of kids because they were being good. Usually these sorts of things resulted in questions from my dad when he reviewed her check-book ledger.
    Mom had a heart of gold, and would give the shirt off of her back for anyone if she thought they needed it. She had a deep love for her family, and was a peacemaker. Traits that I saw exemplified in my Grandma Wentworth as well.
    “The only scars in Heaven, they won’t belong to me and you
    There’ll be no such thing as broken, and all the old will be made new
    And the thought that makes me smile now, even as the tears fall down
    Is that the only scars in Heaven are on the hands that hold you now.” (Casting Crowns)
