Jens Peter Ingstrup

It is with sadness the family of Jens Ingstrup announce his passing on July 2, 2012. Jens was born August 9, 1932 in Rosebud, Alberta. He was predeceased by his parents Viola and Anthon Ingstrup. He is survived by his wife Maureen, son Lavon (Kim) and sisters Bodil, Vi, and Karen. Jens moved to Quesnel in 1964 and purchased what was to become Jens Food Market which he operated for 32 years.

Jens was a sports enthusiast. He sponsored the Jens Hobos Baseball Team (so he had someplace to play) and had managed the Quesnel Kangaroos Hockey Club. Jens was also an active curler and he golfed numerous rounds at the Quesnel Golf Course.

Jens was a well known member of the community. He will be remembered for many things but most fondly remembered for his quick, sarcastic wit which was appreciated and entertaining to many and endured by others.

The funeral service was held July 9, 2012 at Clayton’s Funeral chapel with the eulogy delivered by Bob Johnston.

He will be missed by his family and his many, many friends.
