Sincerest condolences to your family in the passing of your wife and mother.
Lee and I would frequently bump into each other at Family Fare, she never failed to ask about my children- even remembering their names!
We last chatted just a couple months ago,
she will be missed
Rest In Peace, Rise in Glory!

Although I never met Leona Houting, I "knew" her through her daughter, Mary, and realized what a caring, devoted wife and mother she was. Reading more about her I am impressed by her integrity, kindness, and godly life lived in humility and dedication to her Lord. I know she will be greatly missed by her family and friends. I pray for the God of all Comfort to give peace and comfort as they grieve their loss.

Dearest Leona and Vern, Many, many times we left off our treasured clothing to you and vern, who both handled it as if it were their own. We will miss your smiling face at Maplewood, but know that that care remains with your son and successor!

Truly the sweetest, happiest woman I knew. Just loved being around her spunk! Fabulous memories from many years of swim meets, seeing her downtown, at the grocery, etc. my heart breaks for the whole family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
