My sincere sympathy to Leona's family. I fondly remember her from church and she was a good friend of my Mom, Margaret Segerstrom. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

My sympathy goes out to the family -- when Leona and I visited we talked about my family and that she knew all my older sisters (5) of them and I was related to her thru the Olson's
