Our patient loving mother, grandmother, special aunt and friend Constance Pearl Jensen Simcox Clement, 97, passed away on January 25, 2021 at the home of her daughter in Bear River City, Utah, surrounded with love from her family.
Connie, as she was preferred to be called, was born on December 31, 1923 in Brigham City, Utah to Kenneth Samuel and Elsie Rosetta Spencer Jensen, the oldest of two children. She was reared and educated in Brigham City, a member of the B’Etts, Boomerang Staff, and Band before graduating from Box Elder High School.
After attending Utah State Agricultural College for one year, she married Howard G. Simcox Jr. on June 28, 1944. They were blessed with three children and made their home in Brigham City.
Connie was a member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority and served on the Peach Queen pageant for several years. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints 9th Ward.
