Lena Marie Foxcroft (Strachan)
March 16,1945 ~ January 31,2012
It is with great sadness that we share the passing of this wonderful Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Friend.
Lena passed away peacefully with her daughter Bernice and son Steven by her side. She fought her short battle with dignity and strength while her dear sister Kay encouraged her with love.
Lena leaves behind many people who loved her, she is survived by her Mother Eva Demorest, Sister Kay (Gene) Beaulieu, Daughter Bernice Henry, Son Steven Henry, Step-son Keith Foxcroft, Step-daughter Laura Foxcroft, her loving Grandchildren Levi Jackson, Scott Henry, Cody and Kassandra Weaver, Rhiannon and Rachele Foxcroft, Shane Foxcroft and Kenny Vetter, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Lena was born in Finland and came to Canada when she was 6 yrs old. Lena made Vancouver Island her home, living in Sointula, Port McNeill, Ucluelet, Gold River and Campbell River. Her passion for line dancing (choreography), gardening (award winning backyard) and her Feathered Friends gave her much joy. She made many friends through her dancing and love of music, cruises and live theater. Lena loved life, her family and entertaining her friends.
Lena will be greatly missed by her family and many loyal friends old and new. She was and always will be loved. We miss you already. Please join us for a Celebration of her Life on Sunday Feb 12th 2012 at 3:00 pm at The Anchor Inn, 261 Island Highway, Campbell River, BC, V9W 2B3
