Phyllis Louise Jensen, age 91, passed away peacefully with family by her side in Richfield, Minn. on Thursday, March 4, 2021. She was born on March 16, 1929 in rural Jefferson Township, Houston County, Minnesota to William and Dora Schuldt. She was the youngest of twelve children raised on the family farm.
Phyllis married Robert Hosch on August 12, 1948 in Caledonia, Minn. and they had five children. They divorced in 1967. She married Lee (L.B.) Jensen on February 19, 1970. During her life, she worked in the restaurant and banking industries and in various administrative positions in larger companies. Upon retiring, she and husband Lee moved to warmer climates, living in various states in the South and Southwest United States. They spent many of those years residing in Las Vegas and Bullhead City.
Being raised in rural Minnesota gave her a love and appreciation of the beauty of the outdoors. She particularly enjoyed the time spent after retirement in Nevada and Arizona. She loved her numerous pet cats over the years, and had a number of bird and cat prints hanging in her residence.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Lee Jensen; daughter, Ellyn Hosch; parents; and all 11 of her siblings.
She is survived by her son, Terry (Laurie) Hosch; daughters, Joan Hosch Jensen, Susan (Rick) Kuhn, Janet (Alana) Hosch; daughter-in-law, Lee Biersdorf; grandsons, Jeremy (Sarah) Hosch and Benjamin Hosch; great-granddaughters, Andi Hosch and Joslyn Hosch; and many adult nieces and nephews and their families, and friends in the Bullhead City area.
A private service and interment of Phyllis and Lee will take place later this year at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN.
She will be truly missed by all whose lives she touched.
