Obituary

Andrea Katharine LaCombe Jensen, 80 of Marquette, passed away on Sunday, January 8, 2023 at the Trillium House.

Andrea was born on March 26, 1942 at St. Mary's Hospital in Marquette, a daughter of the late James and Patricia (Moore) LaCombe. She was raised in Munising, attending Sacred Heart Grade School and was a 1960 graduate of William G. Mather High School. She was a lifelong area resident.

Andrea was employed for 28 years with J.I. Case Company as an accountant retiring on March 31, 2001.

At the age of 28, Andrea acquired a rare disorder called Sheehan's Syndrome which had a lasting impact on her life. She took piano lessons at age 40 for four years and then played at the Jacobetti Home for Veterans and other local nursing homes as "Keyboard Annie" for many years.

In her free time, Andrea enjoyed scrapbooking, painting and anything with crafts. She was a professional seamstress doing custom sewing for people. She was also known for doing occasional clown gigs.

She is survived by two children, Perry Jensen of Kenosha, WI and Wendy Jensen of Milwaukee, WI; one grandson, Harley Jensen; five siblings, Peter (Irma) LaCombe of Garden Grove, CA, Denise Micolichek of Munising, Gregory LaCombe of Curtis, MI, Michele (Joe) Benson of Munising, and Noel LaCombe of Green Bay, WI. Preceding her in death besides her parents was a brother, Mark LaCombe.
