Title: Lena A. Westover


Lena Alice Westover, 99, of Shreveport, La., formerly of Farmington, passed away January 4, 1992 at Heritage Manor in Shreveport. She was born Sept. 15, 1892 in Farmington to the late Eugene and Martha Thurman. She was preceded in death by her husband, Grover Westover.

She is survived by one son, Harold L. Westover of Shreveport, La.

Many may still remember the friendly bookkeeper who worked so many years at Jennings Lumber Company before retiring in 1959 at age 67.

She always worked hard, was open and kind to everyone, and could tell many tales; such as crossing a stream across a log felled by her father to save an additional five-mile walk to school.

Mrs. Westover was a member of the Memorial United Methodist Church of Farmington.

After retirement, she made her home with her youngest brother, Emmett E. Thurman, who preceded her in death, in Colorado Springs, Colo.

In 1985, she joined her son, Harold, and his wife, Sylvia, in Shreveport, La., and enjoyed 2 1/2 years of living with them before a broken hip necessitated her entrance to Heritage Manor South.

Graveside services were held January 6, 1992 in Parkview Cemetery with the Rev. James T. Powell officiating. Arrangements were made under the direction of Taylor Funeral Service in Farmington.
