Biography: 

Lena Grove's mother dies in the same summer as Lena's father does (1924), when Lena is twelve years old. Both parents have impressed upon her a sense of filial duty; she takes care of her father at her mother's dying request and goes to live with her brother McKinley in accordance with her father's wish.

Note: 
Because Lena's brother McKinley is "twenty years her senior" (5), we assume that their parents died of old age.
