Leona Mae Cheever

October 30, 1928May 9, 2019

Leona Mae Cheever, age 90, was peacefully welcomed into Heaven on May 9, 2019, surrounded by family singing her favorite hymns. She was born October 30, 1928 in Wichita, Kansas. Leona was a devoted mother and wife and is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Marvin Ralph Cheever. She had 12 siblings and is survived by her younger sister, Aloma. Leona leaves behind her 5 children; Norman, Susan, Christina, David and Carol. Her legacy lives on through her 14 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. She was steadfast in her desire to teach her family and others about the Lord and prayed she would see them all in Heaven. Leona found so much joy in teaching children, countless lives were changed by her involvement in the Good News Club, Missionettes and Sunday School. She was a strong, self-sacrificing and faithful servant of God. It is impossible to fully put into words how much she will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

I hope to come Fri. As a young person growing up at Faith Assembly, I have many good memories of Leona. She was respectful, kind, gentle. She showed inner strength as well. She was steadfast in her faith. It is an honor to have known you Leona. Even though we haven’t seen each other through the years, many wonderful memories of you left a deep impression on me. You’re love and faithfulness to God and others are being rewarded.

Norm and Sandi,
Even though we didn't know your mother, we are certain that she had an enormous and positive impact in her influencing you both as to who are in Christ today - wonderful, faithful and devoted to the cause of Christ. Please accept our humble condolences at this time of sorrow in your lives.

I will miss Leona. I loved the stories she told. Very pleasant to talk with. She always treated me kindly and was generous. As a child she made me welcome always at her house. She was never afraid to say what she thought but did it graciously. I’m so thankful the Lord took her home so peacefully. She raised some wonderful children.
