Roy worked with the construction crew engineering and constructing the bridges going through the gorge. Mitzi loved to work with people and because of that love, she became the first City of Mesquite secretary. Mitzi would always go the extra mile and excelled in whatever she did. She loved working for the city, she had the chance too work for several mayors and council members, she loved people and people loved her.
Mitzi loved her family, especially her grandchildren. Her life was her family, she looked forward to family visits and gatherings. In the summertime she loved to spend time with them working on the Jensen ranch in Lund, NV. She enjoyed her garden, specially when the rose garden bloomed in the springtime. Mitzi was very compassionate, and was loved by all those who knew her. Her family and friends will miss her laugh, her cold knees, her sense of humor, and her willingness to serve others.
