Ida Jensen

Obituaries #1

Ida Jensen passed away yesterday at the age of 73.

Miss Jensen was an institution at the gas company. She'd worked there 53 years. No one did bookkeeping and payroll better than Miss Jensen.

She began working for the gas company at age 20 and rarely missed a day. She'd just finished payroll for the previous week when her heart gave out.

Her boss, Jared Moore, said, "She was put in the debit column when she left Heaven and added as a credit to Earth. Now...it's the opposite."
