Sadly, Lena passed away suddenly at home in Kamloops on 23rd June 2012. She is survived by her loving family 3 daughters, Patricia of California, Gemma (Ron) & Theresa (Ian) of Kamloops and a son Michael of Windsor, Ontario. Nana as she was fondly known to her 13 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren will be sorely missed. A sister, Theresa McVeigh of Scotland and special friend Andrew Clark share in our sorrow.
She was predeceased by loving husband, John McGrandles.

Lena's faith was very important to her and her deep spirituality helped through the difficult times. Lena enjoyed her family and travelling to Scotland, Italy, USA, Mexico, Hawaii and cruising. She danced her way through a rewarding and fulfilling life.
