Leone was a dear friend and neighbor. We shared many activities together in Sunrise Mobile Estates. She was such a sweet and gracious lady. I will miss her but thank God that she is well and safe in His arms.

My first memory was watching her help quilt a quilt by hand in her driveway. I knew Leone for over 22 yrs and had many lunches, shopping, and lots of laughs with her on her patio. I will miss her but I know she's in Heaven and not hurting anymore. My prayers to all the famiy and her Sunrrise family

I never had the pleasure of meeting Leone but her warmth and her love come through her offspring who I do know: her daughter Brenda, granddaughter Ashley and greatgranddaughter Morgan. I have heard stories of Leone's love and devotion to her late husband and to her family. I know this loss will be hard for them but her legacy and lessons lives on through them.

My gramma was more than my gramma. She was one of the most beautiful and elegant souls I've ever known. The smiles, laughs, tears and lessons I learned from her will always be precious to me. I love you Gramma!!!!
