Justi "Nana J" Jensen passed away in her home on Thursday, November 13th, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Justi was born in Afton, Wyoming and spent the first four years of her life in the tri-city area of Washington State with her parents, Reynold Kennington and Enna Bee Hemmert. Shortly after her 4th birthday, her father was killed in a helicopter accidQent, so her mother moved the family back to Star Valley.

She loved living nearby her family and treasured spending time with her children and grandchildren.
