Carolyn “Carol” (Sullivan) Jensen – of Woburn, passed on Tuesday, July 12th with her children by her side, two weeks shy of her eight-ninth birthday. Beloved wife of the late Robert E. Jensen who passed in 2007. 
 
Carol was born to Julia and Julian Sullivan and raised in Melrose along with her four sisters.  She was educated in Melrose and graduated from Melrose High School. In 1960, Carolyn married the love of her life, Bob and together settled on Woburn’s West Side, where they raised their family.
 
After her youngest started school, Carol returned to the work force.  She started working at Toys-R-Us and then later for Heartland Drug and finished her retail career at CVS.  She enjoyed going to flea markets and yard sales.  She was a ‘collector’ of Avon bottles, beanie babies, salt and pepper shakers and many other things.  She will be deeply missed.
 
The Jensen Family would like to thank the staff at Bear Mountain in Reading for their compassion and caring for Carol in her final days.
