Obituary for Charles O. Jensen

Charles Olen Jensen, age 54 of Cornell, died Saturday, July 27, 2019 at Cornell Health Services with his “Angel Angela” at his side.
Charles was born to the late Gordon and Betty Jo (Bailey) Jensen on June 18, 1965. He grew up in Cornell and graduated from Cornell High School in 1983. Charles was quiet, humble, kindhearted, silly, stubborn, resilient, and would do anything for anyone. He loved everyone he met and brought immeasurable joy to everyone who truly knew him. Charles was loved by his biological family and left his earthly home knowing he was unconditionally loved by his surrogate family, The Pratt's. He will be remembered in everyone's heart forever.
Charles first and last love was the family farm and his dog, Annie. He enjoyed Ritz crackers slathered in peanut butter, Doritos, shopping for clothes, diet mountain dew, anything John Deere and his newest love of the movie theater. He had fun bowling, camping, fishing, and listening to music. Charles cherished his large collection of The Hamilton Collection and Franklin Mint die cast cars, trucks, and motorcycles which he proudly displayed in his home! Most of all, Charles appreciated being included and would tell stories of his most recent outing with the nursing home or his trips to Kevin and Angie's campground where he was showered with kindness from those who met him there.
Charles was an active member of the Faith Baptist Church where he faithfully attended every Sunday and did whatever he could to help others. He also attended the Northwoods Church in years past.
Charles is survived by his siblings; Jo'Ellen (Ernest) Jerome Sr. of the Town of Arthur, Wanda (Chris) Knez of Cornell, Lynn (Rob) Peters of Pueblo, CO., Roderick (Michele) Jensen of Burlington. He leaves behind his very special Aunt Sally Bailey among many other aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Finally, he will be deeply missed by his surrogate family; Angela (Kevin) Pratt of New Auburn, Adam (Katoria) Pratt of Bloomer, Jacob Pratt of Henderson, NV., and Mikel Pratt of Bloomer as well as his church family. Charles is preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.
Memorial services will be held at 3 p.m., Friday, August 16th, at Faith Baptist Church located at 724 Main St., Cornell with Pastor Mark Williams officiating. The community is welcome to call on the family at the church from 2-3 p.m. prior to services. There will be a luncheon to follow in the church basement graciously served by parishioners of the church.
Borton-Leiser Funeral Home in Cornell is serving the family. A private family Interment will be held later this Fall at Forest Home Cemetery, Rhinelander, WI., where Charles will be laid to rest peacefully next to his Mother.
