I met Mrs. Jensen and saw her a few times mostly at the airport but my Daddy A. C. Robertson knew Mrs. Jensen very well. He was crazy about her. He drove a limousine and he went back and forth to the airport a great deal and there were many times that on his off day he would take me to the airport just to introduce me to Mrs. Jensen. He often talked about her being the first lady on the police force. I can still remember how nice she was to me but I was told that she could be tough with people when she had to be. My prayers are with the family and I will always remember meeting Mrs. Jensen and the times I saw her. I also believe that she lived in Inglenook which s where I lived while growing up.
We love and will miss you Aunt Betty. Always on our minds, forever in our hearts. ?? Rest in peace.
Love, your neice Crystal (Jensen) Otts and Family
It was my great honor to be a part of Mrs. Betty's Taylor Church family and we all just adored her! She was always happy with a ready smile and a hug. I loved to look down from the choir loft and see her smile and sing with gusto! She was one of the sweetest and kindest people it has ever been my pleasure to know! She will be missed! Love and hugs to all her precious family!
It is such a honor being part of Mrs. Jensen's (Bot) family. She always had a smile and made you feel so loved. I will miss her.
I was blessed to have her in my life. She welcomed Bubba to the family right off no questions no judgements.. thank you. Betty you were one classy lady. I love you .
My husband and I both worked at the BPD with Betty. We both respected her, but I loved her dearly. She was an amazing woman. She was funny, friendly, and serious. As others have said, she was a gracious, charming lady who gave good advice. I'm so sorry for the loss.
A true pioneer, and a great lady! I only met her a few times while we both worked at BPD. But each time was a true pleasure. I pray for her perfect rest with the Lord.
Dale,I am so sorry for your loss.I know you loved so much and that she will be missed greatly.
I was fortunate to know Betty while we were both with the Birmingham Police Department. She will truly be missed.
When my husband and I first visited Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church, we sat in a "wing" and before long the most handsome of couples came to the bench in front of us. Immediately I thought they were made for each other. As I got to know them, I realized that here was the most gracious people on top of being so handsome. I enjoyed Betty's humor and wise advise. When she got her red jeep I told her I had always wanted one. We rode to Oneonta to see Reba Belding and when we returned, we declared that we would go for rides often. We didn't. I feel a great loss now. Love and prayers to Betty's family and close friends. See you in heaven, Betty. Save me a place near you.
We NY Jensens have very nice memories of Aunt Betty! She was such a nice upbeat person. You are all in our thoughts. Love, Lori
I am so sad to hear of Betty's passing. She and I became friends at the Beauty shop. Bob Branyon has been styling both of our hair for many years. I looked forward to seeing her there each Friday, and I loved her from the first time I met her. She has meant so much to me through the years. She was always smiling and so friendly. She will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved her.
Only met her after she retired. She seemed a very sweet and caring person
I was also very fortunate to have worked with Betty at the police dept. She and Ann Saunders were very good at helping me learn the ins-and-outs of the police dept. and giving me "motherly" advice. She was also a great example of how to speak up for yourself. She was a very gracious lady and a truly lovely person. I am proud to have known her. May your family be blessed with loving memories of her, as I will.
Betty was one of the sweetest and prettiest police officers I ever knew and worked with. She was always a great joy to be around. A polished and professional officer, she will be greatly missed. Betty visited me when I was recovering from a broken neck in Carraway Hospital. She was always such a friendly person in the mornings after I had worked overnight at East Lake Preceint. A smile and a "How did it go/" always made the day worthwhile. It is with great sorrow to have to say "Goodby" to a Great friend and lady.
With much respect

Betty was such a loving and compassionate person. She looked for the good in everyone. I loved her sense of humor and enjoyed working with her.
I worked with Betty at BPD. She was a kind well respected police officer. Her motherly smile could put you at ease. She paid her due being the first female police officer and if anyone should be honored as the first, it should be Betty. She did it honorably!

I was fortunate to have been able to know and work with Betty over the years we spent in the BPD. I extend my sympathy to her family. May she rest in peace.....
