Leona worked in the egg farm business for most of her life and didn't retire until she was 85. Leona loved animals and would never let a stray go hungry. She raised cattle and would walk the pastures daily to make sure they were all accounted for and ok. She loved gardening and had a green thumb and could grow anything. She enjoyed canning her fruits and her vegetables. She loved having her friends over for coffee and playing dominos. She had the sweetest disposition and was always smiling. She was the best mother-in-law and grandma anyone could ask for and this world will be a lot less shiny without her.
