MARY ELIZABETH JENSCH, DMJ Sister Mary of the Daughters of Mary and Joseph, aka Sr. Gertrude Mary. Daughter of Raymond and Gertrude Jensch, Mary was born in San Francisco, February 28, 1928. Died February 13, 2015 in Torrance, California. She is predeceased by her parents. Mary will be deeply missed by her DMJ Community, numerous relatives, friends and former students. She attended St. John's Elementary School, St. Mary's Academy and Mt. St. Mary's College. Mary was tireless in her pursuit of learning and enthusiastically shared her passion for education throughout her life. As teacher, administrator and student-counselor, her ministry spanned a period of over six decades. Her assignments include: St. Paul the Apostle, Westwood; Our Lady of the Rosary, Paramount; Pius X High School, Downey; St. Joseph High School, Santa Maria and Saint Bernard High School, Playa del Rey. Mary was truly dedicated to her students and much loved by them. As former Provincial Leader of her Community during the turbulent 70's, Mary guided her Sisters in the spirit of renewal of Vatican 11, always with a blend of vitality, humor and creativity. In her later years she was an active member of the Interfaith Alliance of Culver City, an involvement she treasured and in which she participated the day before her death. To the very end she taught ESL to women at Presentation Learning Center, Watts. We are especially grateful to the E.R. Medical Staff of Little Company of Mary Hospital for their professional and compassionate care during Mary's final hours and to the Staff and Care-givers at Marian Residence.
