Leona was a special friend. I was her escort during the May Crowning in 1959. Sylvia Jane, "my late wife" and I were present at Leona and Alvis,s wedding. She is loved and will be missed by many. Say hi to Janie in Heaven.

She was a dear, sweet lady. May she joyfully reunite with her loving and devoted husband Al and other family members who preceded her. Take comfort in your memories John, Sandy and Randy. She has earned eternal rest and is with God now.
