She enjoyed the visits from her children and grandchildren and in her spare time became an expert quilter and baker. She made countless trays of cookies for family and friends every Christmas. Lawrence passed in 2017 after 67 years of marriage. Leona then returned to Wolcott to be with her son Larry and her grandchildren.
