Deaths-Leona-FriesenLeona didn’t let cancer define her, but joyfully led an active life: hiking and walking, playing ping pong with Jake, quilting and gardening, and volunteering at the Upper Room Mission – one of her great joys. She had the gift of hospitality and often had people over for meals or coffee.  A good listener, Leona was interested in other’s lives, encouraging them and praying for them. She loved her children and grandchildren.
