We are sorry to hear of Leona’s passing. I will always remember her as a great community person with a real nice personality while we all lived in the Avonhurst community . She essentially outlived the majority of the community ladies in/around her age group - well done Leona ! Rest In Peace
Our warmest condolences go out to the Chubb Family’s
