She lived in various places in and around Plamondon. She especially enjoyed her 28 years on
the homesteaded family farm by the Lac La Biche River. Over the years, she participated in
several community organizations and projects, with some roles being a vice-president, typist
Lena sewed many clothes for her family. Her creative outlet was also applied to ceramics,
knitting, crocheting, and macramé over the years. She knitted sweaters for all members of the
family, with the grandchildren receiving several over the years as they grew. On one occasion,
as a surprise, the family organized themselves to show up wearing the sweaters she had given
them. They all had fun watching her reaction as she gradually realized what they had done.
She was also known as a wonderful cook and baker. It was always a treat to see what new
animal cut-out cakes she would make.
Lena was a wonderful mother, and delighted in her grandchildren and great-grand children.
Due to the Covid restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be planned later, together with her
sister, Alvena Dubé, who recently passed away.
The family wishes to thank Lacalta Lodge, Alberta Health Services Home Care, and lastly Long-
Term Care, for the many years of care.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Lacalta Lodge, Box 900, Lac La Biche, AB, T0A-2C0 may be made.
