STRACHAN, Lena Marie
March 1945 – February 2012
Lena was born in Finland, and arrived in Sointula at age 6, with her brothers and sister. She raised three children while living in the Upper Island.
Lena had a very special talent for teaching. She excelled at that passion while directing the dancers to her music selection. Her loyal “Saddle-Up Dancers” class were with her every season at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and enjoyed many invitations to perform at various public functions.
She married Keith in 2006 and spent her summers in their back yard and in her “Grotto” which she loved so much.
Most winters were spent traveling to Pt. Vallarta, Cruise Ships thru the Canal & Caribbean. The Saturdays at the Courtenay Legion gave her the entertainment and friendship she so much enjoyed… thanks to you all who knew her and always said, “Hi”. Pretty little thing, she was…
She is survived by her husband Keith, mother, brother and sister, her children and grandchildren.
I KNOW YOU WILL DANCE AND TEACH UP THERE TOO, “BAABEE”
BYE FOR NOW…
