Lynda Lea Ekman Jensen held the hand of her husband and soulmate, Todd Jensen, as she passed away on the night of October 12, 2021. Lynda bravely persevered in her fight against multiple sclerosis for over twenty years, ultimately passing from COVID-19 pneumonia and related complications. She was 57 years young.

She is preceded in death by her father Lee Dale Ekman and her brother Brett Ekman.
Lynda fiercely loved her family. She was a devoted wife to Todd and happily sealed to him in the LDS Idaho Falls Temple. She was his “bug-a-boo.” She was also a proud mom of three daughters. She loved to share their successes with the world. Most recently, she cherished her title of “Grammy,” spoiling her grandchildren with homemade treasures. She enjoyed sharing her talents with them, including crafting, sewing, and painting.
Lynda was a remarkable person who radiated positivity even on her hardest of days. She was known for saying, “Every day is a good day.” Lynda exemplified strength and courage in her decades long battle with multiple sclerosis. Despite her own struggles, Lynda showed empathy and compassion for others. Among other admirable characteristics, she will be remembered for her kindness, her steadfast faith, and her beautiful smile.
