Lena Lee Huffmaster, or all who knew her, knew her as “Mamaw” of Del City, Oklahoma, passed from this life on January 2, 2021, at the young age of 75. Lena was born August 30, 1945, in Beckley, West Virginia to George and Margaret Alley.
Mamaw loved everyone, she had an ever-growing family, because everyone she met instantly became her family. She was known for her feisty attitude, love of black coffee, and her desire to shop. You would often catch her at the All-American Diner, or Mama Lou’s her favorite restaurants, also known as the extended family. She was a little on the wild side, there will never be another quite like her. At the age of 65, she was found on the trampoline at one of the grandkid's birthday parties. She liked her fireball on special occasions, which was known to all as her “cup of tea”. It’s also been said she gave the best hugs for anyone that received one, they were truly full of love. This growing family, brought together by the central unit known as Mamaw, always encouraged all who she came in contact with to make sure they had a happy heart.
Lena is survived by her favorite dog, "Sugar", whom she spoiled more than her own kids, with a bed in every room of the house, along with a home cooked meal every night. Sugar had more food in her own refrigerator than she kept for herself.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Margaret and George Alley; and her husband, Henry Huffmaster; and 1 sister, Margie Craig.
She is survived by her 2 daughters, Geneva Wright and husband, Allen and Michelle Caruso and husband, Tony; grandchildren, Crystal and Jeremey Messner, Jodi Wright-Vaughn, Cameron and Abby Higdon, AJ and Kacie Caruso, and Chris Wright; 1 brother, Richard Alley; along with a multitude of great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews. Just like the song “Hotel California” once you were in this family, you could never leave.
