She will always be remembered and leaves behind her son Glen (Sonya) Benwood and grandchildren Nolan, Erin and Haley. Sister Betty (Mike) Zelenak and brother Dixon (Margaret) Ward, Frank’s children Nancy Boyer, Jerry (Jean) Spotowski, Jim Spotowski, Garry Spotowski, Doug (Janice) Spotowski and two grandchildren, Jessica Spotowski and Zac Boyer. She also leaves behind many, many true and dear friends and relatives from over her 83 precious years.
Respecting Leona’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family service will follow.
The family would like to extend a warm “Thank You” to the staff at Shepherd’s Care Kensington, the Sturgeon Hospital on Unit 18, and to the staff on Unit 9Y at the General Hospital. You walk amongst angels…..
In lieu of flowers, a donation in Leona’s memory and spirit would be preferred, to a charity of your choice.
