Ada Kathleen Jensen Harr, age 92, passed away on April 1, 2022 in Lehi, UT.
She married Grant J Harr in the Los Angeles Temple on August 16, 1959. Together they had four children, David, Stephen, Daniel and Janet. He passed away in 2010.
Kathleen loved her family, both her immediate family and her extended family. Nothing gave her greater joy than spending time with her children or her siblings and their children. Along with her love of family was a commitment to education. She worked as a schoolteacher until she had children. Once her children were a little older, she founded her own pre-school and spent many years teaching the local children the things that would give them a head start once they entered regular school. Later in life, she returned to Los Angeles and took up teaching again. She continued to teach until her retirement at age 71.
Kathleen inherited a love of music from her mother Lillian. She learned to play the piano and sing. Throughout her life, she sang in church choirs, and was chosen several times to take part in special area choirs tasked to perform at events like the dedication of a new temple.
Kathleen was an avid gardener. When her family lived in Idaho, she converted a half-acre of land into a miniature farm that supplied the majority of the food they ate. Corn, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, and onions all grew under her care.
Kathleen was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and was a faithful member her entire life. She instilled a love of the gospel into all her children. She was given many callings in the church, including that of Relief Society President, and she fulfilled all of them to the best of her ability. Her service to others and Christ-like manner of living was an example to everyone who knew her.
Kathleen is survived by three of her children, David Harr, Daniel Harr, and Janet Harr, two granddaughters, Rachel Fosdick and Dierdre Sommer, a great-grandson, Robbie Sommer, and two siblings, Jack Jensen and Judy Key.
She is predeceased by her father and mother, her siblings Lamont Jensen, Blaine Jensen, and Rex Jensen, her husband Grant and her son Stephen Harr.
The family funeral service for Kathleen will be held on Tuesday, April 5 at 1 PM at the Anderson & Sons Mortuary in Lone Peak, 6141 W 11000 N Highland, UT.
