Leota “Marlene” Tenney, 71, of Buckhannon, went to be with her loving husband on Monday, Jan. 14, 2019 at her home under the compassionate care of WVU Medicine Hospice following an extended illness.
She was born Feb. 7, 1947 in Buckhannon, a daughter of the late Floyd and Leota Margaret Rowan Holden. She was preceded in death by her husband, Burt Eugene “Fuzzy” Tenney; and two sisters: Dorothy and Gretta Holden.
Survivors include her two children: Rejeana Smith and husband, Matt, of Buckhannon, Marlin “Bo” Eugene Tenney of Weston; grandchildren: Rusty Eugene Neal of Clarksburg, Dramica Neal of Weston, Satasha Young and husband, Joshua, of Ketchikan, AK, Trevor and Trenton Tenney both of Weston, Elizabeth Eagle of Buckhannon, William Smith of Clarksburg, and Joshua Schulte of Buckhannon; great-grandchildren: Leota and Winter Wells, Eli, Braiden and Brandon Ferrell and Josia MacaBee.
Marlene was employed by Weston State Hospital and William R. Sharpe, Jr. Hospital with over 20 years of service. She was also a support group member for Ellamore Fire Department. Marlene loved her grandchildren dearly and her satiric personality will be truly missed by all her family. She also enjoyed knitting, nature, and especially going to Festival Friday’s to listen to Ryan Cain and the Ables.
