Patricia (Patty) Lou (Jensen) Nessen

Patricia Lou (Jensen) Nessen, 69, departed this life on Wednesday, April 6th, 2022 at the UK Hospital in Lexington, KY.
She was born at Hamilton AFB, CA to Kenneth Jensen and Wanda Bonnie (Butcher) Saindon.
Patricia enjoyed planting her garden, transplanting her flower bulbs, and caring for her plants. She had quite the green thumb. She could never pass up a yard sale and loved to find little treasures. She did what brought her true joy, in all aspects of her life. She loved the journey, the excitement of life and would often pack up and head out on new adventures, crystal digging in the Arkansas hills was one of her favorite things to do. Her mission in life was to live, love and learn, as well as pay it forward to everyone she met. Laughter was always on her mind, she loved playing pranks, telling knock knock jokes and singing silly songs she came up with on the fly. Patty loved fiercely and lived in each moment, gently taking in life as it came.
Patty is survived by her husband James Nessen Jr., daughter Thalia (Langdon) Insco, son-in-law Jason Insco, granddaughters Ashley Phillips and Catherine Insco, grandson Layne Insco. Step-son James Nessen III, daughter-in-law Marnie Nessen, grandsons James Nessen IV, Conner Nessen, granddaughters Cadence Nessen and Jillian Nessen. Brothers Richard Jensen, Ronnie Jensen, Sisters Cecelia Traylor and Victoria Trott.
In lieu of a memorial service, cards and flowers we kindly ask that you make the world a better place, random acts of kindness and paying it forward, planting a tree or flower in her memory.
When the sun shines upon your face, know she is with you, smiling down upon you. This is not goodbye, it is just for now, we will see her again.
