Lenora was awesome & hard working lady. She always had a smile & greeting for everyone. I knew her & her family when i lived in Cumberland. Then a couple of years ago I had the honor of meeting her again when she came to New Westminster to visit her sister Margaret. It was such a pleasure to renew her aquaintance again. Lenora's smile & greeting will be sadly missed by all.
