"Aunt Packy" will definitely be missed but never forgotten. She would try to help out anyone in need and would give you the shirt off her back. "Packy" adored her nieces and nephews and spoiled all of them their whole lives. Her great nieces and nephews were her most cherished masterpieces in her life and not one of them went without much. She made sure they all had the best of the best. One of her favorite sayings was, "If those kids want something, then "Aunt Packy" is going to make sure they get it." "Aunt Packy", we will hold you in our hearts until we can hold you again in heaven. Love you always and forever.
In her 50's "Packy" went back to college to become a preschool teacher. She taught preschool at Headstart in Granville for about 10 years. She also worked at the Casey's in Varna.
Cremation rites have been accorded and a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Memorials can be made to the Diabetes Foundation and online condolences can be left at lenzmemorialhome.com
