I remember the years of Leona during the years at the united church of christ in Union and the times we worked together in Womens Circle and Choir...We worked many funerals and luncheons during that time. Those were good years and many memories. RIP Leona, you have served the Lord well. Janet Wright

I remember playing yahtzee with her everyday. She loved that game! Also, our story times and music days. She loved listening to the Andrew's sisters. She sure loved her cookies ♡♡ I'm so glad I had the pleasure to know her!

Not exactly a memory, but I do imagine the pinochle decks are being shuffled, and Leona and Norma are teamed against George and Uncle Elmer for the first game.
