Doreen Olive Jensen Rogers passed away peacefully on September 3, 2019 in Bountiful, UT. Born in Montpelier, Idaho on October 19, 1928. Married Rex Eugene Rogers on June 1, 1946 in Montpelier, ID. Later Solemnized in the Salt Lake City Temple on September 12, 1969.

She was the fourth child of seven and third daughter of Olive Matilda and Alfred Thomas Jensen. She lost two of her siblings at an early age. She grew up in a loving pioneer household, where they were taught to use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. She has had apples prepared every way possible, as they were the one thing that was always plentiful around their Bear Lake County homestead…and she still loved them.

She was an adventurous soul at heart, and has been river rafting, flown in a small-winged aircraft and helicopter, traveled all over the U.S. but was probably never happier than when she was camping or out of doors with family. As a housekeeper, she was often accused of being too clean…we often said she would catch the dust in a net before it would land.

At 90, she was the last surviving sibling of her family. She was preceded in death by her husband, daughter Ann Sudweeks, and son-in-law Ray Browning. She is survived by her daughter Jean Browning, son Alan (Chris) Rogers, 10 grandchildren, and 29 great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, September 6, 2019 at 11 am at the Rose Park 4th Ward located at 1163 W. 800 N. SLC, UT. Viewings will be held on Thursday, September 5, 2019 from 6 – 8 PM at Larkin Mortuary, 260 E. South Temple, SLC and on Friday from 9:30 – 10:30 am at the Ward prior to the service. Interment to follow at the Paris City Cemetery in Idaho.

We would like to thank the staff of Welcome Home-Bountiful and Marcia Nielsen of Symbii Health for their care of our mother.
