Birth: May 2, 1884
Manitoba, Canada
Death: Jan. 19, 1927
Lewis County

Lena Johnson was born Helena Nickel in Manitoba, Canada to Jacob and Maria (Dueck) Nickel. Like her husband, Frank's family, her parents were among the almost seven thousand German speaking Mennonites who emigrated to Manitoba, Canada from Russia. Lena's parents arrived with their parents and siblings on 19 Jul 1875 aboard the S.S. Canadian.

In 1903 the Nickel family moved to Polk County, Oregon and in the process, their surname was changed to Nichols. However, Lena signed her name Nickel on her marriage license and marriage certificate in 1906.

The family moved to Craigmont about 1910.

Children: Frank, John, Jacob, William, Helena, Henry, Ernest and Elmer.
