Obituary: Ileen Jensen

Great-grandmother, longtime Claremonter and CUSD employee

Ileen Jensen died peacefully in her home in Placerville, California on December 23, 2021. She was 88 years old.

Born September 25, 1933 in San Bernardino, California, Ileen lived much of her life in Claremont, where she worked for the Claremont Unified School District for 30 years. Later, she and her late husband Donald Jensen retired to Placerville, California.

She is survived by her daughters Karen Paul and Linda Jensen Rodriguez, and their spouses Leland Paul and Pierre Rodriguez; grandchildren Heather Paul, Jonathan Paul, Ryan Rodriguez, Ashley Stanley, and all of their respective spouses; and great-grandchildren Madison Paul, Charlotte Gelfond, Ella Stanley, Max Stanley and Alice Paul.

A celebration of her life will be held this summer in her beloved high Sierra.

“We will cherish the memories she has given us,” her family shared.

In lieu of flowers and in honor of her memory, her family requests that donations be made to a local animal rescue or shelter.
