Amy Carol Jensen
July 16, 1935 – June 30, 2021
Amy Carol Jensen was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on June 30, 2021 in Boulder Colorado after a brief illness. She was born on July 16, 1935 to Edwin Charles Shuttleworth and Amy Caroline Shuttleworth in Amsterdam, NY. Her education included attendance at Emma Willard School in Troy, NY followed by LaSalle Junior College in Auburndale, MA where she studied art and design.
She married J. Douglas Jensen on April 20, 1957 in Amsterdam NY. They resided in Ridgewood, NJ until their relocation to Boulder in 1970. Doug and Carol’s 55-year marriage was a testament of true love.
Carol will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt as well as a talented artist, knitter and chef. Her infamous holiday meals and handmade greeting cards will certainly be missed by all. She was also known for her abilities as a tennis player, skier and, as of late, her many daily walks and her manicured gardens.
She volunteered in many capacities at both First Presbyterian Church and Calvary Bible Church. She also visited nursing homes and worked with the women’s jail ministry just to name a few.
She is survived by David (Rhonda) Jensen of Glenwood Spring, CO, Amy Wolf of Lafayette, CO, grandchildren Taylor Jensen, Landon Jensen, Elyse (Frederick) Beckman, great-granddaughter Olivia Beckman and her brother Dr. Edwin C. Shuttleworth II. She was preceded in death by husband J. Douglas Jensen, brothers Allen B. Shuttleworth and Dr. David B. Shuttleworth.
An 11a.m. celebration of Carol’s life is planned for Monday, July 19, 2021 at Calvary Bible Church, 3245 Kalmia, Boulder, CO 80301. In lieu of flowers the family requests contributions be made in her name to Calvary Bible Church or Samaritan’s Purse, PO Box 3000, Boone, NC 28607 (828-262-1980), samaritanspurse.org/donate.
