Lena was a lifelong member of St. Joseph Church and more recently Sacred Heart Parish. Lena was a wonderful strong wife, mother, aunt, and friend. She instilled good core values in her family, never spoke a curse word, and taught her children patiently and lovingly. She enjoyed cooking, baking, crocheting, tatting, and working on the farm. She could be found transplanting in the greenhouses during the spring and working in the farm stand through the summer and fall.
Lena is survived by a daughter Katherine Kulina of Suffield; a sister Jane Lucas and her husband Stanley of Chicopee; brother-in-laws Frank Kulina of Suffield and Joe Kulina of Enfield; many nieces and nephews; and grand-nieces and grand-nephews, and her beloved dog Bella. She was predeceased by a son, Walter III, a daughter, Joan; two brothers Joseph and Walter Majewicz; and sister Stella Rypysc.
A special thanks to ‘The Kulina Team’ from Trinity Health at Home, and the St. Francis Trinity Hospice Care team in Unit 8-1 for their exceptional treatment.
