Lena grew up on a farm south of Radville and split her education between the school there and the convent in Montmarte. In 1953 she moved from Radville to Lake Alma where she spent most of her life until she moved to the Radville Marian Health Centre in 2012. She was very involved in the community throughout her life and was always volunteering when she could. She loved gardening and baking and spent time quilting, crocheting, knitting and making rugs. Lena enjoyed the company of her friends and family and always had a pot of coffee on and dainties ready when they would stop by for a visit. Lena loved her family, especially her grand children, they were her pride and joy. Her favourite sound was hearing them laugh.
The family would like to say thanks to the staff at the Radville Marian Health Centre for taking such good care of Lena and providing support to us at the time of her passing.
Lena was a kind and gentle soul who will be missed dearly.
For family and friends so wishing, charitable donations in memory of Lena may be made to the Radville Marian Health Centre, Box 310, Radville, SK, S0C 2G0.
