Azalee (Lena) Owens

AZALEE (LENA), the eighth child, also left Richmond Green soon after her parents' death. She went to live in Richmond like her sisters. But in 1940 the job market was very slow in the Richmond/ Highgate area. She could only find temporary work. So she also moved to Kingston. The job situation was much better there. She was able to get a job at Serve Well with her sister Ellen. She worked at Serve Well for many years.

Lena had no children.

She migrated to Canada, but returned to Jamaica some years later.
