BORDEAN, LENA (nee Shandro)

We regret to announce the

passing of Lena on the 13th day of June 2011, at the age of 97 years.  She was predeceased by Michael, her husband of 64 years, and is survived by her daughter Jane

Wilkinson (Warren), son James,

granddaughter Ashley Hackwell (Chris), great grandsons Dylan, Cole and Karter, and step

grandchildren Justin (Chris) and Craig Wilkinson.  She is also survived by her sisters-in-law Pearl Smith and Kate Shandro of Edmonton and brother-in-law Willard White of Sherrill, New York, and a host of nieces and nephews.  Lena grew up as a member of the large

pioneering family, the Shandros of Northern Alberta.  She and Michael lived in Whitford, AB, moved to Edmonton in 1954, then came to Kelowna in 1961, where they operated the Orchard City Motel for many years.  They enjoyed a happy retirement and eventually settled in at Hawthorn Lodge whose caring staff made she and Michael’s last years enjoyable and carefree.  There will be a Memorial Service on Thursday, June 16th at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC, followed by an interment in Edmonton.  In lieu of flowers, memorial

donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com
