I am glad we all have wonderful memories of who she was in life; sweet, kind and funny. She will be missed! Rest on the porch and save us a seat on the swing...

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of Lena's family.
I met Lena several years ago when she joined the Red Hats Club.
We became good friends and were together in two Red Hats Clubs, The Razzle Dazzle Dames and when that club disbanded we formed the club she belonged to until her passing the Classic Chicks. Lena was both, a razzle dazzle dame and a classic chick and we all had so much fun together. Her sister June is also a part of our Red Hat Club. Seven of us (including June) attended a Red Hat convention here in Amarillo and we called ourselves "The Magnificent Seven".
All of us will miss her, but she will live forever in our hearts.
We ask for God's strength, comfort, and peace to be with each of you in the coming days ahead.

She sure loved us all and appreciated everything anyone did for her. I will miss her lovely smile, humor, and warm hugs. It breaks my heart to know I won't get to see her again in this life, but rejoice to know we will get to see her again in heaven. Sympathies to all the of the family. ~ Denise Boose
