Rosemary A. Jensen (nee Staub), 96, passed away peacefully of natural causes Friday, Aug. 19, 2022. She was a resident of Rose Senior Living in Clinton Township.
Rosemary was born April 6, 1926, in Detroit, and graduated from St. Martin's Catholic School. She raised four sons at her home in Grosse Pointe Farms and was a faithful parishioner of St. Paul's on the Lake Catholic Church. Later in life she joined St. Isidore Catholic Church in Macomb Township.
Rosemary worked for Grosse Pointe Farms City Hall for 15 years and enjoyed the friendships she developed with co-workers and residents alike. She loved to travel and was an avid golfer. She also enjoyed many card games, especially when she shared those times with close companions Gordon "Gil" Gilbert and Ed Soave.
Rosemary is survived by her sons, Christopher (Kathleen), David (Diane), Daniel (Laurie) and Frank (Renee); as well as her 11 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren whom she adored, as they did her. She was predeceased by her parents, Ralph and Helen Staub; brothers, Ed and John; and sisters, Kay and Gerry.
A memorial Mass takes place at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 19, at St. Isidore Catholic Church, 18201 23 Mile Road, Macomb Township. The family will receive friends at 9:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Rosemary's name to the Capuchin Monastery, solanuscenter.org.
Rosie was a genuinely witty and adventurous gal We spent time driving and chatting on our trips from her home into Grosse Pointe (several times) laughing all the way. She had a zest for life, a sharp memory and a punchline for all occasions. My condolences to family and loved ones. You were very lucky to have her for so long. She will be missed. Best wishes, Hutch
On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Rosemary. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of her life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Jensen family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Rosemary.
