Leona my sweet dear grandmother! She liked for us to call her Leona so she didn't feel old. 😉
She was an excellent cook. She made the best banana pudding and squash casserole. She was very talented with sewing, knitting and crochet. She would crochet crosses, rabbits, bells and many other things. She quilted beautiful blankets. She made her great grandchildren dresses, bonnets and booties. She was a green thumb too! She loved her gardens and flowers. She grew the biggest cucumbers, tomatoes, squash and other vegetables. She was very loving and caring. She always told me that she Loved me and there was never a day that she did not laugh. She truly taught me how to laugh and enjoy life. She loved to cut up and have fun. She was my inspiration. She said I was her namesake as my middle name was from her. She always said that we need our rest and would always go to sleep at 7pm to get her beauty rest. I believe it was part of the success for longevity. She also taught us to save and sock it away. She did not boast or spend money lavishly. She taught us to be humble and thankful for the things God has provided. She was not greedy and selfish. She had an amazing heart!! She was a wonderful grandmother! She always blew us kisses when we left from house. RIP.
I will miss her greatly!!
