Sena Olsen Neeka

Hansena Petrina Olsen was born 15 November 1886 in Central, Utah.  She grew up in Mt. Pleasant, the daughter of Hans Peder and Ane Kjerstina Marthea Madsen Olsen. Her parents emigrated to Utah shortly before her birth and first settled in Central, Utah (near Elsinore)  and then moved to Mt. Pleasant. 

Sena was a talented seamstress.  She eventually moved to Chicago Illinois where she owned and operated her own furrier shop ~ "Sena Neeka Furs" .   She passed away in 1985 in Janesville, Wisconsin.  I am proud to call her my Great Aunt Sena.   (Kathy)
