Leona was one of Schererville’s oldest residents to have been born, raised, and live as a Schererville resident. She loved her town, family, church, and friends.
Employed by the Lake Central School Corporation for many years as executive secretary and bookkeeper it was her privilege to know all she met during those years and were cherished memories of hers. Playing bingo was her favorite pass time and also telling many tales from long ago.
She loved life and enjoyed every day. She was an inspiration to her family and loved by all who knew her. She will be missed. May all her loved ones be forever happy to have her by their side in heaven.
The family would like to thank her nieces, nephew and many wonderful friends for all the kindnesses given her. It takes a village to care for our loved ones.
A mass, burial and celebration of life will be held at a later date at St. Michaels Church in Schererville, Indiana so all family members can be present.
