Sally Jane Ackerman, 73, passed away January 4, 2020, at her son’s home in Spanish Fork, Utah. The daughter of Wilford Moroni Ackerman and Amy Marjorie Edwards, she was born on January 7, 1946 in Dragerton, Utah. She attended high school at East High in Salt Lake City and raised her sons on the Jensen Palisade Dairy Farm in Sterling, Utah.

In 1965, she was married for time and eternity to Merrill Andrew Jensen, having met each other because her sister was married to his brother. Merrill and Sally had three sons: Jerry, Ron, and Brian. Her boys took special pride in their unique relationship of having double cousins, and were best friends with the cousins they worked the farm with.

Sally’s world changed in the late 1970s when she was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Even through battling this mental illness and the impact it had on her whole body for the next 40 years, Sally was full of love. She enjoyed music, poetry, walking outdoors, and being with her family. She was a life-long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Sally is survived by her sons, Jerry (Manti, Utah), Ron and his wife Jennifer (Spanish Fork, Utah), and Brian (Price, Utah); 19 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren and two on the way; sister Marcia and Rod Abramowski (St George, Utah), and sister Ann and Ken Payne (Roy, Utah). She was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, three brothers, and two grandchildren.

Sally will be laid to rest in Monroe, Utah, next to her parents, whom she missed greatly and spoke of often. A celebration of life will be held in the Spring.
