A memorial Mass for Eleanor Eichhorn Lenney, 99, of Hamburg, who drove a car until she was 92 and bowled until 95, will be offered at 10 a.m. Monday in SS. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, 66 E. Main St., Hamburg. Private burial will be in Holy Cross Cemetery, Lackawanna.

Mrs. Lenney, who was born in Buffalo, died Monday (Nov. 23, 1998) in Orchard Park Health Center after a brief illness.

She and her husband, William H., who died in 1963, raised their family in Hamburg. She lived in the Parkview Towers in Lackawanna for nine years until earlier this year, when she moved into a nursing home in Hamburg.

Mrs. Lenney was a president of the Newton Abbott Fire Company Auxiliary and had been active in the Orchard Park Kazoo Band. She also was active in Our Lady of Sacred Heart Catholic Church's Altar and Rosary Society.

On May 30, Lackawanna Mayor Kathleen M. Staniszewski presented her a plaque on her 99th birthday.

As for her bowling, she didn't take up the game until she was in her 60s, according to relatives, who described her as "a feisty lady."

Survivors include two daughters, Jane Moran of West Seneca and Rita Ranic of the Town of Boston; 17 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; and a great-great-grandchild.
