Margaret A. Jensen (nee Feehan) 88, of Pelham, NH passed away peacefully on June 26, 2014 at the Meadows in North Andover, with her eldest daughter, Claudia, at her side. She was born on October 20, 1925 in Montreal, Canada, the daughter of the late Thomas and Anna Feehan. She became a proud citizen of the United States of America in 1967. Margaret was preceded in death by her husband, Kai H. Jensen, whom she married in 1948. She was the beloved mother of Claudia M. Clark, Maryanne G. Jensen-Gowan, and her husband, Jeff Gowan, also of Pelham. She was the devoted grandmother of Meghan E. Gowan of Somerville, MA. Margaret spent most of her married life in Wellesley, MA, where she and Kai made a happy and loving home for their daughters. She was employed in the Foreign Students Office and the Development Office at Wellesley College for close to two decades, but her first joy was in being a homemaker and the center and heart of her family life. She studied at Regis College in Weston, MA, and later in her life, enjoyed taking continuing education courses in art history at Wellesley. She loved language and took great pleasure in literature, theology, and travel. Her Irish heart was devoted to her Roman Catholic faith, which gave her strength during her brief illness with cancer. Margaret was a communicant at St. Patricks Parish in Pelham, where she was a member of the Womens Guild. A prayer service was led by her pastor, the Rev. Volney Von DeRosia at the Pelham Funeral Home, followed by interment at Gibson Cemetery on Saturday, June 28. E-condolences at pelhamfunrealhome.com. Gifts in Margaret A.
