Lena Elizabeth Minor Cherry

Courtsy of Nancy Benton

The photo is of Lena Elizabeth Minor, who married R. Graham Cherry on August 1 1935. I’m assuming that her husband is the man sitting beside her on what looks like a pleasant summer evening.

Lena was born August 1 1916 in Liberal, Missouri, the daughter of Cora Vera Noyes and John J. Minor. Cora was a daughter of Ray Noyes and Elizabeth Jane “Bettie” Brewer of Liberal, Missouri.

The family record gives Lena as dying July 1981 but her grave marker at Find a Grave shows she died May 31, 1981. She is buried at Centuries Memorial Park Cemetery in Shreveport, Louisiana, as are
Robert Graham Cherry Sr. and Robert Graham Cherry, Jr.
