Biography

Lena was born in 1867 in Huxley in Palestine township, Story County, Iowa, USA, the daughter of Tjærand Trondsen Arnevik and [[Øvrebø-59|Siri Tollaksdatter Øvrebø]. Her parents and older siblings had just immigrated to Iowa from Norway the year before. Her father Tjærand americanized his name to Charles, her mother adopted Sarah, and the family took the surname Arendts (also spelled as Arntz, Arndts). Lena was also given a Norwegian name: Line Karine Arnevik. Lena grew up on the family farm near Huxley. Lena's mother passed away when Lena was 15 years old, so she became responsible for running the household. At some point after 1885, she joined her brother Tom at Kensett in Worth County. In 1889, she married Joseph Youmans at Nevada in Story County, and joined him on his farm near Kensett. They had seven children together, two of whom died in infancy. Her husband Joseph died in 1936. Lena passed away in 1941 at Kensett, aged 73. She is buried together with her husband and daughter Lavina in the Kensett cemetery there.

Funeral services for Mrs. Lena Youmans 73 a resident of the Kensett vicinity for over 50 years were held Monday afternoon at 1:30 P.M. at her late home at Kensett and at 2:00 o'clock at the Methodist Church in Kensett of which she was a member. Rev. R. S. Phillips, pastor of the Northwood and Kensett Methodist Church conducted the services. Burial was made in the Kensett Cemetery beside her daughter Lavina and husband. Mrs. Youmans died last Friday afternoon at her home following an illness of several weeks. She is survived by 4 children; Ed Youmans, Kensett, Bert Youmans, Gordonsville, and Mrs. Synthia Urbatch, Manly, Mrs Dorothy Dunbar, Earlham, Iowa, and one brother Severin Arendts, Dillion Montana, 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Mrs. Dunbar had been with her mother during the last 6 weeks of her illness. Mrs. Youmans was the daughter of C. T. and Serena Arendts, and was born 19 November, 1867 in Story County, Iowa. When a child she was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith. Her mother died when Lena was 15 years old leaving her to care for the family. For a time prior to her marriage she had made her home with her brother Tom Arendts at Kensett. On April 2, 1896 she was married to Joseph Youmans at Nevada, Iowa. Seven children were born to them, 4 boys and 3 girls. Her husband and 3 children preceded her in death. The recent visit of Mrs. Youmans brother from Montana, whom she had not seen for 45 years was a great pleasure to her and helped to ease the burden of her suffering.
