Mearle Elaine Jensen passed away after 90 vibrant years, on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, in her Bowie, MD home, with her family by her side. Beloved wife of the late Albert J. Jensen, loving mother of Evelyn Thrift, of Bowie, MD and Susan Goodnite, of Millersville, MD. Proceeded in death by parents Arthur and Mary Ehlenberger.

Mearle was born and raised in Yonkers, New York. She married the love of her life, Albert, in June 1955. They moved to Bowie in 1966 with their two daughters. Mearle devoted her life to her family, caring and loving her six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
