Shirley J. Jensen, age 83 of North Branch passed away on Thursday, February 7, 2019 at Ecumen North Branch.

Shirley was born Nov. 22, 1935 in Elrod, South Dakota to parents Peter and Martha (McElroy) Peterson. She grew up in Henry, South Dakota and graduated from Henry High School, class of 1954. Shirley moved to Minneapolis and began working for the phone company as a telephone operator. She married Eugene M.
