What great memories of a strong woman. She had such a rich life and always a positive attitude. A wonderful person. She will be missed.

Aunt Lena will be missed. I remember she always had her door open and prepared a meal to anyone who came to visit. Loved our visits and time together. She was a gentle soul.

Dear Marilyn & family,

Our sincere condolences on the passing of your mother. What a wonderfully long life
she had and may you be blessed with the same. Never easy to lose our mother no matter how long they may be with us.

God bless you and may your family and friends be a great comfort to you at this difficult time.

A GRANDMA'S GARDEN TABLE BASKET was ordered on November 13, 2017

Expression of Sympathy Nov 13 2017 12:00 AM

I met Lena only a year and a half ago, but what a delight i learned she was. I couldn't believe her age when she told me. She filled my life with so much joy as I'm sure she did everyone that she met. I will so miss her smiling face. The void I know she leaves her family will be greater than anyone could imagine. My deepest sympathies to her entire family.

Dawn Vogt Nov 13 2017 12:00 AM

Dear Marilyn,
Sincere sympathy to you and your family on the passing of your mother. How wonderful you had her for so long. My mother was also born in 1914; however, she has been gone since 2003.
Love, Bev (Ecker) Haag
