Born and raised in Kentucky Vena was well known for her wonderful sense of humor, her amazing green thumb, and her love of crocheting - which left so many warmed by her hat, scarf, afghan and baby blanket creations.

She will be fondly remembered and deeply missed.
She is survived by her children; Sara Alexander and her husband Jesse, James Franklin, Edward Lawrence and his wife Sheila, Vera Lawrence and her husband Henry Schwandt, Raymond Lawrence and his wife Rosie, Stacia Lawrence and her husband Tracey Taylor, and Max Pynacker. Also surviving are 14 grandchildren, 17 great- grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren and her son-in-law Douglas Coddington.
Vena was predeceased by her daughter Ida Coddington on May 20, 1988.
