Kathleen was born in Ilkeston, England. She and her husband, Arthur JENSSEN, were happily married for over 74 years. Together, they lived in Hunterdon County for over 50 years. They have three children: daughter Arleen Hendry and her late husband DAVID, son Thomas Jenssen and his wife Chris, and son Richard Jenssen and his wife Lori. She brought Faith and joy to her eight grandchildren: Christie Farmiga and her husband Stephan, John Jenssen and his wife Mary, Jennifer McManus, Blake Jenssen and his wife Laurel, Greg Jenssen, MaryBeth Jenssen and her husband Colin, Veronica Jenssen, and Kelly Jenssen. She delighted in her six great-grandchildren: Cassidy, Emma, Simon, Thomas, Mazie and Alexander.

She was a member of the Emmanuel Reformed Episcopal Church in Somerville , where she directed the choir, lead many Bible studies, and shared her faith with the community. She volunteered at the Somerset Medical Center as well as at the annual Pottersville Fire Company Antique Show. She enjoyed gardening, reading, and loved birdwatching while drinking her first cup of tea. Kathleen was the cornerstone of her family and while she will be greatly missed, her family rejoices in knowing she is at peace with her Savior in her eternal home.
