She was survived by her husband and all eight of her children and a host of grandchildren.

From Susan Barwick Elliott: Ms. Lena, you had to be a special lady to take in and love this family in need of a Mom and to make such a lasting impression upon them all.

Poem she loved and was read at her funeral:

Somehow
I've tried for many an hour and a minute
to imagine this world without me in it.
I cannot think of a newborn day, without me there
Somehow, Someway.

I cannot imagine the autumns flare
Without me here alive, aware.
I cannot think of a dawn in spring,
without my hearts awakening.

These treasured years will come and go with swifter pace,
But this I know,
I have no fear, I have no dread.
Of that marked day that lies ahead,
My flesh will turn to ash and clay
But I'll be here
Somehow, Someway
