Leni was the ninth of 12 children. She and Jacob married and started a family in Filadelfia, Paraguay. They immigrated to Canada in 1974, living in Winnipeg for 2 years before settling in Abbotsford, B.C. For 32 years on Janzen Street, Leni devoted her time to making a home for her family. She loved playing Skip-Bo and other games with her grandchildren. After Jacob’s death, she moved from their beloved home to an apartment. Leni looked forward to visiting with family and friends. She enjoyed travelling, playing musical instruments, singing, making puzzles, and telling jokes. Leni loved the Lord and was ready to go home.
