It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved daughter, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt.

She is survived by her two sons, Richard "Lil Rick" Blanco, Jr. and Stephen Blanco (Melissa); her four granddaughters, Kayla, Cheyanne, Jayden, and Mekenna; and two great-grandsons, Shane and Julian. Lena is also survived by her parents, Reyes and Julia, brothers Richard, Rocco and Kito, and sisters Martha (George), Veve (Buffalo) and Ninny, many nieces and nephews, as well as, family and friends.
