Lena, daughter of Benjamin and Anna (Oswald) Grieser. On Feb. 4, 1920, she was married to Simon Birky, who preceded her in death on May 15, 1969. Mother to Anna-Mrs. Leland Zehr, 3 sons Lyle, Wilford and Loren . Lena was my Great Aunt, sister to my maternal grandmother, Anna Marie Erb. I remember Aunt Lena as being small in stature but had a heart of gold, soft spoken and so very kind.
