"Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts."

Lena was born and raised in Barelas. She attended Albuquerque High School and both she and Moe graduated from Saint Mary's in 1947, in Albuquerque. She will be remembered for her beautiful quilts, her strength, compassion, generosity, and love for her family.
