Lena's Story

Text size

Lena Lucille Sisney, age 91, moved to her heavenly home on February 14th, 2017.
Lena was born March 1, 1925, in Bristow, Oklahoma to John Wesley and Dicie Rae Sisney and moved to Stillwater as a child.
Lena grew up with three brothers, Elza, Ernie and Bobby, whom she loved dearly. Lena was a graduate of Oklahoma A&M and worked in Stillwater for the Central Rural Electrical Cooperative until her retirement. She moved to Arlington, TX in 2014 but her heart remained in Oklahoma.
Lena was a longtime member of Altrusa International where she served in various leadership roles. She enjoyed traveling and visited many different countries in her lifetime. Some of her best travel companions were friends she knew from Altrusa.
Lena adored animals and had a number of beloved pets. She was especially fond of cats and always had one by her side.
Lena never married but she had seven nieces and nephews that she spoiled whenever she could. She was always delighted to hear the latest news from each family and was faithful to send cards for every occasion. Her sweet spirit, loving nature and sense of humor will be missed by those who knew her.
Lena is survived by her nieces Carole Secrest, Georgia Sisney, Linda Turner, Beverly Guadagnolo and Brenda Feeny, nephews Richard Sisney and Steven Sisney, nine great nieces and nephews, and their families. She was preceded in death by her parents and three brothers.
Family and friends will celebrate Lena's life on Monday, February 27, at 10:30 a.m. at Strode Funeral Home in Stillwater, followed immediately by a brief graveside service at Fairlawn Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be sent to Tiny Paws Kitten Rescue, 901 S. Lowry Street, Stillwater, OK 74074.
