Leona occasionally spent time with her sister Millie at the family farm when my children were staying with "Grandma Millie" before they attended school. Those years were very precious to us and we coud feel the warmth and love in your family. I remember a brother stopping by as well but am unable to remember his name, for certain. I know he lived in the remodelled schoolhouse down the road. It was a pleasure to know your family. You have my sincere sympathies in the loss of your mom and grandma.

She looks exactly like I remember her! When we lived in the small ‘garage’ behind the store, one day I fell on a tin can that had the top off with a very sharp lid cut off with a can opener. It sliced a huge gash in my right hand. My mother was working at the Warsaw store that my uncle Albert owned and was alone in the store that day so could not take me to the DR. so she had her good friend, Leona take me. Our Dr Francis was an old army Dr and said he would stitch it up, he did not have anything to numb it at all so it was a HORRIBLY painful ordeal. I felt like I was on the war field front lines, i now have a great appreciation of what being wounded on the field is like! Leona had to hold me down while the Dr stitched my hand in the sensitive inside palm. I pulled all the buttons off her shirt and her blouse off!! I have a perfect ‘wishbone’ scar on my right hand to remind me of that day and Leona who was just so kind and loving. Her daughter Marjorie was also a girlfriend of mine, they lived on a farm up the hill from us growng up in Warsaw. Just wanted to share a special story of her kindness.
