Leona was the only girl at school who trapped gophers for money. She gave her heart to Jesus at 16. At church, she noticed her friend’s brother Art, who also thought her the prettiest girl in the choir. Leona loved beauty, and her creativity showed in her cooking, sewing, gardening, music, and the way she undertook everyday tasks. After Alzheimer’s disease set in, making it impossible for Art to take care of her any longer, she moved to Tabor Home. Leona will be remembered for her servant heart, gentle spirit, love for family, and devotion to her heavenly Father.
