Lena's home was a gathering place for family and friends.
Her grandchildren loved her dearly. She was never too busy
for them, and made each one feel special. Lena loved company
and had the ability to make each guest feel so very welcome in
her home. She loved singing and playing the piano. The love of
music was instilled in the children by Lena and August.
Her youngest son is Paul Revere of the group “Paul Revere
and the Raiders". Lena was his No. 1 fan. She became even
more proud when Paul's son Jamie joined the band.
The grandchildren loved to go to Grandma's house because,
there they could turn up the record player and sing and dance
all they wanted to.
Lena was even known to dance the "twist" with them. This
would make them squeal with delight! Lena also loved dolls and
collected many kinds.
She was a member of the First Mennonite Church of

life. When she could no longer attend church, and her eyes
grew dim, her favorite thing to do was to have her daughter
read the Bible to her.
