A lovely lady with spunk. I met Lenice at Martha Franks. She was living there when my parents moved in and she made them feel welcomed. I enjoyed visiting with Lenice occasionally. She spoke of her children and grandchildren and it was obvious how much she loved you. I met Lenice when she was 92. She was still beautiful and full of life. Lenice was one of those folks you enjoyed visiting and she will be missed. She had a good sense of humor. My prayers are with your family.
