Lena worked for Dominic Yascavage at the former VFW Post 1687, Hummelstown for 32 years; had worked at the Sears Snack Bar in Colonial Park; and was a seamstress at the Arrow Shirt Factory in Shamokin. She was member of Trinity United Methodist Church, Hummelstown. Lena was a 1948 graduate of Shamokin High School. She was a social member of the American Legion Post 265 and the former VFW Post 1687, both of Hummelstown. Lena loved to cook, shop and have a good time.

She is survived by her husband of 56 years, David R. Herr, their two daughters, Jeri and Judi; three other children, Linda, Lee and Lamar; and numerous grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a granddaughter, Erika J. Frazier, and a great granddaughter, Rosario G. Snyder.
