Marlys Elaine Jensen (Petterson)
Oct. 23, 1939 - May 19, 2011

Marlys Jensen, 71, of Lakewood, WA passed away unexpectedly on May 19, 2011.
She was born Oct. 23, 1939 in Bottineau, ND to Nels and Helga Petterson.
Marlys is survived by her loving husband Richard of 50 years, whom she married on November 26, 1960. She is also survived by her children, Kristine Campbell, Paul Jensen (Tiffany), and Steven Jensen (Kris); and her eight grandchildren, Jennifer, Andrew, Ashlie, Taylor, David, Mariah, Karlie and Alex. She also leaves behind her brother, Norman (Pat); sisters, Peggy and Bernice; and numerous nieces and nephews and uncountable friends.
Marlys was a proud 1957 graduate of Everett High School. She attended Western Washington University where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Education. She worked in the education field her entire life and retired from the Lakewood School District in 2000.
Marlys lived her life for others. After retiring, she volunteered for the Assistance League / Operation School Bell where she was the Historian for the organization. Marlys loved to scrap book every event that ever happened in her life. Her favorite joy in life was spending time at her home on Lake Ki with her friends, family and especially her grandchildren. One of Marlys' favorite times was Opening Day of fishing each year where she could share her home (and scrap books) with hundreds of people. (You will all still be "required" to sign the guest book!)
We would like to take this time to thank all our friends and family for their prayers and support.
A celebration of Marlys' life will be held on Tuesday, May 31, 2011 at 4 p.m. at the Smokey Point Community Church, 17721 Smokey Point Blvd. Arlington, WA 98223.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Assistance League / Operation School Bell, 5107 Evergreen Way, Everett, WA 98203.
