It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother and grandmother, LENA DELAUW, at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at the age of 82 years.

She is survived by her sons, Peter Jr. (Carmen), and Fred (Tara) as well as her grandsons Ross, Austin, Nolan, Eric and Jordan. She is also survived by her one sister, Pauline Dipasquale.

Lena was born in Kimberley, B.C., on July 11, 1933. She met Peter and they were married in 1957. Together, they helped raise 2 nieces, Wendy and Lindsey, before starting a family of their own. Lena and Peter, with their two young sons moved to Monarch in 1969. In 2007, Lena and Peter moved to Lethbridge.

Lena was a fantastic mother who looked after her family, despite her health issues. She enjoyed music, especially Wilf Carter. Her companions, Dachshunds Betty, Barney and Lucy were loved by her. She will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

A Memorial Service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB., on Monday, June 6, 2016 at 2:00 P.M. with Deacon Frank Peta officiating.
