August 15, 1952 - April 23, 2021

Born Lena Heidinger, August 15, 1952 to Elizabeth and Hugo Heidinger.

Mom passed away in the early morning of April 23, 2021.

Mom leaves behind her best friend/bird Rafiki, which lives on with her friend Marie. She was loved and proud of her three children; Dino (wife Mandy), Tammy (Husband Brian), and Elizabeth (Husband Rob).  Her grandchildren Aiden, Taliah, Isabella and Liam were her pride and joy and gave her the strength and love she so enjoyed.  Predeceased by her brother Art Heidinger, and his wife Betty. She also leaves behind brother Hugo; sister-in-law Lydia; niece Melanie, nephew Junior, and their families, relatives and friends that she held close to her heart.

Mom’s smile is the first thing everyone remembers when spoken of.  And if you ever were on the receiving end of her hug, its a peace and feeling of love you would never forget.  Mom was the BEST HUGGER EVER!

Mom taught us to love all people, help all people and be kind to all.

Know that though we mourn our loss, we know mom is free. Free to dance, free to sing, swim, cook, eat and laugh.  Mom is smiling down on us, wherever we may be and in our hearts.

Mom did not want a funeral but welcomes prayers and love for all. The family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by watching the photo-biography above.
