PRICE - Reila Jensen, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, age 79, passed away peacefully Sept. 27, 2008 in Price.

She was born June 8, 1929 in Standard to Merrill and Ora Bunderson Allred. Married Ralph C. Jensen on Dec. 27, 1945 in San Diego, Calif., and they were later sealed to each other in the Manti LDS Temple on April 3, 1965. Ralph preceded her in death on April 21, 1999.

Reila was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many capacities, including Young Women's president and Relief Society president in the Price 4th and Glenwood Springs Ward in Colorado. Reila and Ralph served together as missionaries in the North Carolina-Charlotte mission from 1991-1992 and also as Ordinance Workers in the Manti Temple.

She was an avid golfer and enjoyed snowmobiling with family and friends.

Reila was a gourmet cook, but her favorite things to make were homemade chocolates and candies. These were definitely a treat that everyone looked forward to.

She is survived by her five children and their spouses, Michael Ralph (Camille) Jensen, currently serving as the president of the New Hampshire-Manchester LDS Mission; Kerry Lee (Frankie) Jensen, Price; Jeffrey Marc (Marilyn) Jensen, Price; Wendy Sue (Randy) Williams, San Diego, Calif.; Jon Paul (Marla) Jensen, Highlands Ranch, Colo.; brothers and sisters, Jim Allred, Beaverton, Ore.; Richine Johnson, Salt Lake City; Muriel Allridge, American Fork; Ellis Allred, Heber City; 25 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; and many loving nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband; stillborn daughter; parents; brother, Wells Allred; and sister, Marcella Barrett.

Funeral service Thursday, Oct. 2, 11 a.m., Price 5th LDS Ward, 545 East 400 North. Family will be at Mitchell Funeral Home, 233 East Main Street in Price, Wednesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. and at the ward chapel Thursday one hour prior to service. Interment, Price City Cemetery.

In memory of Reila, the family requests that donations be made to the Ralph and Reila Jensen Memorial Scholarship Fund at the College of Eastern Utah, 451 E. 400 North, Price, UT 84501.
