Tena was a devoted and loving mother. She was very proud of her family and was excited to become a "Grammy" to her 2 grandchildren and her grandpuppy Angel. Tena loved holidays and family get-togethers; any chance to spend time with her family was important to her. Tena was known for her feisty, yet good sense of humor. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her.
Tena leaves behind her two children: Ken (Peggy) York, and Julie York; her two adored granddaughters Rebecca and Rachel York; her brother Jim (Pat) Minard; loving niece and nephews; and many dear friends.
