Tena was born Dec. 6, 1907, in rural Wellsburg to George and Hattie (Hayenga) Wubbens. She received her education from various schools in rural Wellsburg.

In 1935 the family moved to Iowa Falls where they started a second car dealership. The family moved back to Ackley due to Floyd’s ill health. Tena cared for Floyd for the next five years until his death in 1943. Tena worked at Mershon’s variety store for 36 years and retired in 1983. She joined First Presbyterian Church in 1943 and attended faithfully until ill health prevented her from going.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Floyd; three brothers, John, Clarence and Fred Wubbens; and a granddaughter, Patty Boheman.
