My sincere sympathy. May the live of those close to you and your memories bring you comfort. And may God’s promise of the resurrection give you hope. (Acts 24:15)
I was a Classmate of Leona and her sister at UHS back in the good old days. She was liked by everyone. She will be missed by all who knew her. May she rest in Peace, God Bless Her!
Ted Lander, Classmate
Was a classmate of Leona in the graduating class 0f 1956 at Union H.S. She always had a smile for everyone. Got to know her better at our reunions and missed her at the last few. Good-bye friend.
Have known Leona since childhood, living next door and UHS class of 1956. Always a lovely and kind person. Our condolences to all of her family.
