  4. Jensby Family says:

    “…Well done, thy good and faithful servant …” (Matt 25:23).

    I enjoyed teasing Dottie by calling her “Walter Cronkite” because she always had her hand (and heart) on the news of Calvary whether through her e-mail updates or the Crossroads monthly newsletter. If you had a question about someone or something at Calvary, you just knew to ask Dottie.

    Just an absolutely delightfully, wonderfully FUN person—just a “hoot” !

    GOD BLESS YOU, Dottie—you are sorely missed ! Love, The Jensby’s

    Dottie, you were a great neighbor in Lombard and a great friend. Cindy loved you dearly and now you two are together having fun again in heaven. Thank you for kindly looking out for Rich and Joyce all these years.

    We will miss you very much,

    I would like to express my deepest condolences. I have experienced losing a loved one in death and I know very little can ease the pain. My family and I have found comfort in Jehovah God’s promises that soon our loved ones will be brought back to life. Yes, at Isaiah 26:19, the Bible States “your dead ones will live again. They will awake and cry out joyfully. ” I hope this brief thought can bring you a measure of comfort in this difficult time.
