Looking for a Lena Ann (Most likely Angelena, and maiden name started with an L) that married a US Soldier in NY in the 1940s

Hi! I've been doing some research regarding my grandmother's mother's side of the family. My grandmother's uncle (her mother's brother) was Raymond Earl Reed. I am particularly interested in finding out the last name of his first wife whom he married in New York. She went by Lena though I believe her correct name was Angelena. All I have to go on about her maiden name is that it may have started with an L. She was Italian--my grandmother cannot remember whether Lena was born in America or if she was an immigrant, but her parents and brothers lived in NY as well and my grandmother remembers from Lena's visits to KY that she spoke English very well, but did have an accent. They would have married very early 40s...possibly 1941 or 1942. The marriage ended after World War 2 with his return home to KY in the late 1940s...she stayed in New York. I have had a hard time finding this information due to the fact that in the history realm it is considered "recent" history and the information is not as readily available as older archived records. Raymond Earl Reed was in the US Army and stationed in NY when he met Lena Anne (as our family knew her from visits and letters). In regards to his military service, I know that at the time of his marriage in New York he was a 3 time medal recipient as a marksmanship expert. Any information would be greatly appreciated and I will do my best to provide any information that I can in return. I would like to know what happened to her and any relatives she may have that would like copies of the various wedding pictures and individual pictures my family has of Lena. Thank you! K. King Huffaker.
