I would like to take this time to let you know that you are all in my thoughts & prayers. Aunt Leonora will always be in my heart. I will miss talking with her at night and her laughter. She was always so happy and loved you all so much. To listen to her tell me about her children & grandchildren, you all were the high light of her life. God Bless you all.

You will always be "my little Leonora." I will always remember the numerous things you have taught me including how to sew a patch (which you were always doing as farmer pants have a lot of wear and tear.) More recently I will miss your smile as you "loved up" your great grand babies! I will miss seeing your sparkly shoes and polka dancing with you. May you rest in peace and "polka your heart out" in heaven. I love you.


"Little" Lisa, Vijay, and your smiley little Jackson

We are so glad to have known Leonora and Kenny. They were such good friends to us when we lived near them especially Leonora. We were so lucky and grateful that we lived near them, and had them as good friends all the years we were there. Our love to their children, and grandchildren, and all others who loved them.

You are all in my prayers. Leonora was a great old gal and so much fun to be around. We always had a great time when we worked the election board together. I got her hooked on "grubs" as she called them - (white cheese puffs) and we never worked another election without them. She knew just about everyone and if she didn't know them she would find out who they were. Most of the time she would know their parents or if they were new to the area she'd have a story to tell about who use to live in their home. She loved you all very much and was very proud of her family. May god bless you and bring comfort to you.
