Leila met the love of her life, Gordon P. Bischoff in 1948 and married him February 9th 1949. They raised two children, Claudia (Smith) and Dennis along with 6 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

Some of the things that she loved the most were being with her family at Bear lake, Jackson Hole, on cruises or her favorite, Christmastime. She also loved gardening and working in her yard where she won several awards for "most beautiful yard" from West Valley City. One of her most favorite pastimes was shopping. Not for herself but for gifts for others, especially at Hallmark cards where she bought thousands of cards to send to everyone she knew for every holiday.
