Nekrolog Kenna Larue Prestwich

Kenna Larue Jensen Prestwich returned to her heavenly home on October 9, 2015 after a twelve-year battle fighting the devastating disease of dementia. She died in her own home surrounded by her caretakers, her daughters.

She was born September 30, 1930 to Calvin Christian Jensen and Edith Osborne.

Kenna married the love of her life, Morris Keith Prestwich, on October 29, 1949. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with four children: Dennis (Cheri), Marjean (Jerry Sorensen), Craig (Raquel), and Ellen (Joel Knighton).

Kenna grew up in the small town of Clawson in Emery County. At the age of eighteen, she and her mother boarded a bus and headed to San Francisco to attend dental assistant school. This must have been an adventure for a small farm girl living in San Francisco. This experience became one of the last memories to leave her. She enjoyed many years working in the dental field.

Kenna's greatest joy and most prized possession was her family which includes twenty-one grandchildren, fifty-two great-grandchildren, with two more on the way, and four great-great-grandchildren. Her children and grandchildren have a lot of great memories of Christmas Eves, family fun at the cabin, sleepovers and parties with grandma, and family dinners in her home. She had a strong work ethic and passed that on to her children. She opened her doors to many nieces and nephews who spent time on the farm in Mapleton.

She loved keeping beautiful flower gardens, reading books, traveling, and journaling the important events in her life. She was proud of her heritage and had a great love for antiques. She had a beautiful alto voice and did a lot of singing. She was a loyal friend to many, including her beloved childhood friend, Val Jean "Curley" Curtis.

Kenna was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served willingly and lovingly in many different church callings. However, serving in the Jordan River Temple was her favorite. The temple brought a lot of peace into her life and she loved the years she was able to spend serving within its walls.

Among her loved ones that greeted her on the other side was her husband, Keith, who preceded her in death in 1988. She was also greeted by her family, which included her mother and father, Calvin and Edith; her sister, LaVer Nielsen; and her brothers, Don, Max, and Coy Jensen. Being the baby of her family and the last one to leave this earth made it a joyous reunion. She was also preceded in death by two great-grandchildren, Adam Gabriel Prestwich and Calvin Josiah Prestwich, whom she will now have the chance to know and love.

At mom's request, a private family viewing will take place prior to the services. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. in the Sky Drive LDS Church Building, 4147 West Sky Drive (9800 South), South Jordan. Immediately following the funeral, a luncheon will be held for the family at the church.
Interment will follow at 3:00 p.m. in the Orem City Cemetery, 1520 North 800 East, Orem.
