Leona loved to sing and dance but most of all she loved to dress up.
She was known for her stylish taste in clothing, her glitzy scarves
and beautiful hats. She loved flowers and had a gift for making the
most beautiful arrangements. She was always ready for a day out, to
eat at a favorite restaurant, shop, or to go for a ride in the
country. Most importantly, Leona was known for her strong faith, quick
wit and infectious smile.
