Lena’s family immigrated to Canada in 1926, settling on the prairies before moving to Yarrow, B.C., Lena’s home for 70 years. She became a Christian at an early age. Lena attended Elim Bible School and Vancouver normal school. Lena and Albert’s faith carried them after the 1971 death of their daughter Sharon in a car accident. Lena enjoyed the Dorcas Ruth Club and volunteering at the MCC thrift store. She was known for being loving and nurturing. Lena loved vacationing with her siblings, reading, playing games and spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In 2010, Lena had a mild stroke. Arthritis diminished her mobility, and Albert cared for her until his hospitalization in 2014, when Lena moved to Menno Home.
