She married Al Campbell the 21st of November, 1934, at age eighteen, and moved back to Beaver Valley in the Caribou. I was lucky enough to spend a couple of summers with them, until their daughter was born. Lena was expecting her second child, and there was just too much to do for her to have me there for the summer.
We were both raising our families.. she had a daughter and two sons. I had three sons, just a little younger than their cousins.
As the children grew we were once again able to visit for a couple of weeks in the summer. Those were very special times. Then, after they moved to Quesnel, we went there. Her son, Les and his wife Dayle were so good to us. They drove us to a lot of the out lying areas, had picnics, and generally gave us a good time. By this time they had three kids. A daughter, and twin sons.
One year when we were visiting, we decided to have Christmas in July. Dale cooked a turkey dinner, and when we went for a drive, we played and sang Christmas Carols.
Leslie was born 25 Feb 1943, and died 29 June, 2005. Very difficult for a mother to lose a son. Lena passed 4 March 2010 at age 94. Her husband predeceased her Nov. 9, 1969.
We all hold them dear in our hearts.
