Our beloved Maurine passed away September 23, 1998 of ovarian cancer at her home in Salt Lake City.
She was born in Redmond, Utah August 31, 1917, the eldest child of James Ervin Jensen and Imo Eudora Christensen. Maurine started early in life being a caregiver for mothers in her little community who were recuperating from childbirth. Because she was the eldest child and only girl and because of her own mother's tenuous health, she became a second mother to her brothers. She attended schools in Redmond and Salina graduating from North Sevier High. She was active in sports, drama and music.She married Kent Wendell Jeffery in the Manti Temple, January 24, 1936. She held executive and teaching positions in all the Church auxiliaries and spent much of her time in service to others.
Preceding her in death were her husband, Kent W. Jeffery; her brother, Russell; and her parents.
She married Warren S. Ottley, Sr. in 1983 and they filled missions to Canada and New Zealand.
She is survived by her husband; and sons, Kirk (Karen) Jeffery, Weston (Kayleen) Jeffery, and Stan (Judy) Jeffery; her brothers, (Joe) Rollo E. (Ruth) Jensen, and J. Preston (Kay) Jensen; step-children, Warren S. (Montez) Ottley, Jr., and Barbara (Bob) Hoffman; as well as seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
The family extends special gratitude to Dr. Anna Beck, oncologist, and her staff and Betsy Braun, R.N. of Paracelsus Home Care and Hospice.
