Lena FRIESEN

FRIESEN Lena. Sept. 26, 1925 ~ Aug. 2, 2013. It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Lena Friesen last Friday at Pinegrove Place in Richmond, BC at the age of 87. Lena was predeceased by her husband Abe in 2002. She will be lovingly remembered by her 3 children, Brian (Beverly), Carolyn and Ron (Debbie); 3 grandchildren, Craig (Archirose), David (Jessica) and Staci; and 2 great-grandchildren, Archianne and Marlow; as well as her many relatives and friends. Lena was a hardworking Ukrainian girl who grew up on the family farm in Alberta with her parents, Mary and Emil, and 3 brothers and 6 sisters. She married Abe Friesen on August 25, 1949 and became a devoted wife and loving mother. She was a truly remarkable individual known for her great cooking, sewing, knitting, crocheting and gardening skills … even though having only 10% of her vision. She was a lifetime member of the CNIB. Viewing will be held on Friday, August 9, 2013 from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 34537 Marshall Road, Abbotsford, BC. A Graveside Service will follow at 1:00 pm at Musselwhite Cemetery. Donations can be made in memory of Lena to the CNIB. Tributes and condolences may be left at:
