She was a member of Holy Family Parish.
    Lena’s life centered around her family. They were her world. She was a superior cook and enjoyed craft shows and flowers. She especially liked going to garage sales.

She was predeceased by her son, Sam Campione; her grandson, Jamie Campione; and her brother, Raymond “Cat Man” Kretser.
    There are no public calling hours. Lena’s Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, at Holy Family Parish Church with the Rev. Thomas Lawless officiating. Burial will take place in the spring at St. Johnsville Cemetery, where she will be laid to rest alongside her husband, Salvatore.
    In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Lena’s name be made to the St. Johnsville Rehabilitation and Nursing Center or to the Make A Wish Foundation. Envelopes will be available at the church.
