  • Warren was such an important part of Lazona Ward. He was known and loved by everyone. He had such a quick whit and humor that he used to give everyone a hard time and everyone loved him for it! You could always count on Warren to come up with some funny quip to lighten any mood and crack everyone up! I loved the way he would roll his eyes when someone did or said something off beat. He cracked me up and keep me stocked with smarties! I loved your dad and pray that the spirit of comfort will attend you now as we say “See you soon”.

  • Paul and Carol Malmstrom

    After Mom and Dad picked us up to adopt us, Warren and Sandy were the FIRST members of Mom’s family that we met. Warren always had quite the sense of humor. My entire childhood that I can remember, Warren has been a part of. I loved him then, I love him now, I will eagerly look forward to being with him again. We are truly shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. He still looks like Warren though. Aunt Gloria undoubtedly received him with great joy. Wish we could have been geographically closer, but still treasure the time we visited when we left New Mexico and moved to Utah. Our love, is forever with you and your family Myrna. May the comforting hand of our loving Heavenly Father rest upon your shoulders to lift and strengthen you in this time of loss. We love you dearly, and will keep you in our prayers always.

  • One of the nicest guys ever! Such good memories of Warren and Myrna. He was always so kind, funny, and my first memories of Warren is when I used to babysit for the Jensens… He was always so happy to be taking his sweet wife out on their dates, and he always saw me home safely afterwards. I know he loved his family so much, because his actions spoke so loudly. Later as a young married we were in their ward for 10 years; and it was always fun to be part of their ward family as an adult. He always had a warm smile to give and a twinkle in his eye. Prayers of comfort and peace for his wife, Myrna and the kids. Love you.

    He was such a sweetheart – we considered him and Myrna our adopted Uncle and Aunt. Surely, my Dad has been organizing his welcoming party in heaven for the last few years! We miss them both.xoxo

    We are so sad to hear of Warren passing away. We were neighbors through the church parking lot. We wish Myrna and children and spouses and their wonderful grandchildren peace and comfort through this very sad time. Sincerely Jay and Sharon Clark

  • Warren and Myrna were some of my favorite memories and stll are. Loved you both.

  • Wally McAllister

    We wish all of the family our sympathy. I was quite surprised at Warren’s passing. Wally McAllister, a cousin

  • Francis Ralph McAllister

    Warren was my childhood buddy, cousin and fellow mischief maker. Life was always good when I was with him. I feel so bad that we did not keep close over the years and allowed our paths to go separate ways. My fault for I dearly love him, his family — my Uncle Clyde and Aunt Gloria and his sister Sandra. I remember them as though the past were today. God bless his wife, Myrna, his family and his friends. Our hearts reach out to all.

  • Myrna, you, Warren and I go way back. Sorry for your loss at this time. However, you and I both knw that even though we will miss the old boy right now, we will all be together again at some future time. Lve to you and your family.

  • Christopher Zeigler

    What a Christ-like person. I still remember going around delivering bread with him to people around the ward and neighboring. He even took time to help me make Christmas presents for Christmas last year. I have no doubt that we’ll see him again with Christ.

  • To the Jensen family, I’m very sorry for your loss. I wanted to offer you some comfort that I’ve found in the Bible. In John 11:25 Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from this promise that we can see the loved ones we gave lost again.
