Feb. 4, 1948—March 6, 2018

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 10, at 10:30 a.m. at the Grace Lutheran Church in West Point with Rev. Steve Lund officiating. Interment will be in the Mount Hope Cemetery. Visitation will be on Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Minnick Funeral Home in West Point and will continue on Saturday from 9 a.m. until the time of the service at the church.

Arlene passed away on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, at Valhaven Care and Rehabilitation Center in Valley.

Arlene was born in Fremont to Howard and Bertha (Petersen) Olson and grew up in Uehling. She was very active in high school and developed a love for music and sports, graduating from Uehling High School in 1966. Arlene attended Wayne State College where she majored in Elementary Education with a minor in Music and was a proud member of the Kappa Delta Gamma sorority.

Arlene married Theodore “Ted” Longe on May 3, 1970, at the First Congregational Church in Uehling. Ted and Arlene lived in Lincoln and later farmed near Wayne where Arlene taught at two different country schools in Wayne County. The couple eventually moved to Norfolk in 1975 where they raised their two boys, Trevor and Troy. Arlene had an in-home daycare while the boys were young before returning to the classroom at Madison County School District 16 in 1981 where she taught until 1996 when the school closed. She then moved to Battle Creek Elementary where she taught second grade for three years before retiring in 1999 due to her health.

Arlene loved working with kids, playing the piano, and watching her boys play or coach various sports. She played the piano for the youth groups at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church and her school Christmas programs at District 16 were legendary. She put her heart and soul into her teaching and always did her best to help kids. Arlene loved sports, especially college football, Kansas City Royals baseball and the College World Series.

In her later years Arlene loved playing games with her grandkids: UNO with Emily, hide-and seek with Gunnar, and catch with Vera. She was genuinely interested in the day-to-day lives of everyone who came to visit her and built strong bonds with the nurses that came to the house to take care of her. Arlene loved the Hallmark channel or anything that would make her laugh. Everyone who really knew her loved her spirit and her mischievous smile! She was also very passionate about coffee and looked forward to a fresh cup that Troy would make for her every morning.

Arlene is survived by her husband, Ted (47 years); son, Trevor Longe, his wife Michelle Williamson and their children, Emily and Ethan of Omaha; son, Troy Longe, his wife Katrina (Inness) Longe and their children, Gunnar and Vera of West Point; brother, Raymond Olson (Roberta) of St. Paul, Minnesota; sister, Carol Milander (Jon) of Coleridge; niece, nephews, and numerous cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, a niece (Kristin) and a nephew (David).

The couple came to Fremont in 1952, where Clinton was a long-time Hormel employee. Mary worked in the cafeteria at Fremont Medical Center for 35 years. She will be deeply missed.

Patrick Raymond Keitges, age 78, of Aurora, Colorado, passed away on Friday March 2, 2018. He was born on June 3, 1939, in Hollywood, California.

In his early years, Pat was a gifted athlete who excelled in football, basketball and baseball. In 1959, he met his wife, Carol Coleen Hout, at Wayne State Teachers College.

Francis Jensen

June 18, 1924 – March 5, 2018

Francis ‘Cisco’ L. Jensen, age 83, passed away Monday, March 5, 2018, at Fremont Health.

Fran was born in Fremont on June 18, 1924, to Axel and Pearl Jensen. He was a self-employed carpenter working on many homes in and around Fremont, including the Fremont Mall and the Crossroads Mall in Omaha.

Fran lived in Nebraska, Minnesota and Florida. Before moving to Port Charlotte, Florida, Fran was a charter member of the Inglewood Fire Department and the Fremont Airboat Club. After spending 15 years in Florida building houses, he returned to Fremont and was a proud member of the Democrat Delegates for Dodge County.

Prior to living in Valley, Fran and Donna lived on the Platte River near Fremont. He loved hunting and fishing and held the record for the largest catfish ever caught in the Platte River for many years. He especially loved spending time in his home on the Platte River during the summer. He was a nature lover and could identify the birds by listening to their songs. He watched the eagles nesting nearby, the deer wandering through the yard and the Canadian geese with their young along the river banks. Fran was a very soft spoken man who led by character instead of volume.

Survived by: wife, Donna; children, Dave (Yoli) Jensen of Florida, Teri Jensen of Minnesota, Janey Jensen of Minnesota and Susan Bittner of Fremont; stepchildren, Mark (Corrie) Buckley of Elkhorn, Larry (Rhonda) Buckley of Valley and Rob Buckley of Fremont; 13 grandchildren; 11 stepgrandchildren; brothers, Gerald Jensen and Carl Jensen; sisters, Sally (Arthur) Lackas and Karen (Dwight) Hinkle; sister-in-law, Alma Jensen; many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Preceded in death by: parents, Axel and Pearl (Dryden) Jensen; son, Clay Jensen; sisters, Irene Cawley and Vivian Varnish; brothers, Robert Jensen and Richard ‘Bud’ Jensen; and granddaughter, Tera Pederson.

Please visit to leave an online condolence.

Visitation is 5-8 p.m. Friday, March, 9, at Dugan Funeral Chapel.
