Dyne Jensen, Miss New York of 1940

Dyne Sedgwick Jensen of Greenwich, formerly of Palm Beach, Fla., died March 4. She was 92 years old.

Born in Alva, Okla., Jensen was a graduate of Syracuse University, where she majored in speech and drama. In 1940, she was crowned Miss New York. Jensen was a Conover fashion model and in September of 1943 Norman Rockwell's drawing of her as "Miss Liberty" appeared on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. In her later years, she enjoyed playing the piano and singing and sang at events of The Braille Club in Palm Beach. In Greenwich, she hosted numerous events of the Byram Garden Club. A few of her favorite things were dining out and traveling with her late husband, Carl N. Jensen. Dyne's greatest joy was spending time with her children, grandchildren, relatives and friends.

She is survived by three children, Jeffrey Carl Jensen of Greenwich, Wendy Wylie and her husband, Scott, of Greenwich, and Lori Barnes and her husband, Raymond, of Greenwich, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held Friday, March 11, at the First Presbyterian Church, Greenwich. Memorial donations can be made to the Alzheimer's Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington, D.C., 20090.
