I can only imagine all the changes that happened during your long life. 105 is amazing!

I have a few memories of visits to the farm: the basement kitchen, watching you churn butter and great time spent playing with cousins.

Our thoughts are with your family during this difficult time. You will be missed.

Farewell, Auntie Lena. What a wonderful long life you lived. Although it has been many years
since I saw you, I still have a few memories of being at the farm when I was young: the big barn, my Baba's small house across from yours and Uncle Bill's, chasing my cousins around your house and endless tables of delicious Ukrainian food at family gatherings. Then there was the chicken slaughtering - a trauma of sorts for my young eyes! Never forgot the first time I witnessed that. Rest in peace.
