Zina Marie (Jensen) Davis

July 28, 1938 — October 8, 2022

Lehi, UT

Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and dear friend, Zina Davis passed away peacefully and reunited with her sweetheart Clark in Lehi, Utah, October 8, 2022 with her three sons by her side.
Zina was born in Mink Creek, Idaho, July 28, 1938 to Nels Christian Jensen and Wanda Christina McKenzie of Glencoe, Mink Creek, Franklin County, Idaho.  She grew up on the family farm in Mink Creek, the eldest of five children with siblings Mark, Joyce, Clifford, and Craig.
Zina moved to Salt Lake and worked as a secretary for Exxon and the Atomic Energy Commission both in Salt Lake and Las Vegas.  She later met her sweetheart and eternal companion Lester Clark "Clark" Davis of Springville, UT.  They were married July 21, 1961 in the Logan Temple. They moved to Holladay, UT where they reared their family and resided more than 30 years.
Zina made a career for herself as legal secretary and divided her time running her own secretarial service and volunteering her time with various community organizations including the Daughters of Utah Pioneers.  Active in the LDS Church, she had many church callings over the years including a general call helping to create church outreach programs to members who were unable to attend regular church services.
Clark and Zina loved sports and cheered on BYU. They were season basketball ticket holders for BYU and went to games often with friends and family.  She was also an avid golfer and she and Clark would golf with friends and family frequently.  She even won several state amateur tournaments over the years.
Zina loved to travel, visiting California on many family vacations and to see friends.  She also visited Europe several times and was especially grateful to visit her ancestral home in Denmark.
Zina always opened her home to friends and family traveling through the area, often having overnight guests when someone had a medical trip, a departing missionary, or other event. She often spoke of her niece Rhonda as her surrogate daughter when she lived with her while attending college.  And this was true of so many nieces, nephews and friends who temporarily shared her home.
After retirement Clark and Zina moved to St. George, UT where they lived until his death in 2003, at which time she moved to Springville, UT and eventually to Lehi, UT, and with each move making new friends and remaining active in the community.  Her last few years were spent at the Covington retirement home, where once again, she made new friends and was considered a joy and pleasure by the staff and nurses there.  We are so grateful for their loving care in her final years.
She was preceded in death by her husband L. Clark Davis, her parents, Clark’s brother Keith and sister-in-law Marva, as well as two siblings (Mark Christian Jensen and Joyce Wanda Stark). She is survived by her three sons, Kerry, Madison, WI, Lance, Lehi, UT, Brian, Lake Forest, CA, and grandson Samson Landon; as well as her brothers Clifford Jensen (LaDawn) Mink Creek, ID; Craig Jensen (Laura), Presto, ID; loving nieces, nephews, and extended family.
A viewing for family and friends will be held at Wheeler Mortuary, 211 East 200 South in Springville on Friday, October 14th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 15, 2022 with a viewing from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. prior to the service.  Burial will be in the Springville Evergreen Cemetery.
