Tena attended Beardstown High School with the class of 1973. She was a cook at many restaurants in the area including The Side Door Cafe and Riverview Restaurant in Beardstown, and The Depot in Virginia. She then took time off to watch her granddaughter which led to her starting her own in-home daycare in Beardstown. Tena crafted, sewed, and baked many goods that she shared with everyone. She enjoyed working puzzles with her friends at Parkside Place, and watching Reality TV, especially Jerry Springer and Maury. She loved shopping and taught her daughter and granddaughter how to find the best deals. Tena's sense of humor and giving heart will always be remembered by her friends and family.
