Lenne was devoted to her family, her church, her friends, and her community.
A long-time member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Lenne was active in many areas of church life. An alto, she sang in the choir for over 45 years, still carrying a tune and standing with the choir past age 80. She was active in Lutheran Church Women, evangelism, and fellowship, often assisting with receptions and meals. In her later years, she helped to found a group that became known as The Brown Baggers. It was comprised mostly of single women who carried a brown bag lunch with them to church and met in the church social hall after church services. Their numbers swelled as did their activities.
Having graduated from Thiel College in 1941, she was active in the Thiel Alumni Association, the Thiel Women's Club and in a scholarship program for the Sigma Kappa Alumni Association.
She was a volunteer aide at Greenwich Area Hospital for 38 years helping to recruit and train volunteer aides and "Candystripers" and to schedule volunteers and substitutes. During the 20 years her children were in school she was active in PTA, was a band mother and Girl Scout leader. She was also a volunteer at Hempfield Volunteer Fireman's Station One fundraisers. In 2004, the Kiwanis Club of Greenville recognized her years of diverse volunteer service with their Unsung Hero Award.
She was a long-time member of the Bayview Literary Club, an organization which met monthly for over 50 years to discuss books and current events.
Coming from a family who believed in the importance of faith, education, hard work and high moral standards, she touched all who came in contact with her. Every day she manifested her gratitude for God's blessings, passing God's blessings on to each and every one. She brought a glowing smile with her wherever she went.
