I didn't find Lena in a 1940 Census and her daughter Louise had married.

Lena Hastings Dobbins
Born: 1875, Indiana
Died: 15 Feb 1952
Buried: Spring Hill Cemetery

I looked for her parents but didn't find him. A couple of her siblings are listed on FAG and you might have more luck looking for them.

I'd contact the Danville Public Library and Archives, for copies of both of their death certificates and obits. Their parents names will be on their death certs if the Informant knew that info. Successful Searching!
