Leona was predeceased by her mom and dad, Edna & Edward Kirkness, sisters Merna Charlebois, Clarice Budd, Adrienne Prince, brother Delmar Kirkness, niece Kim Watkins. Leona was born February 24, 1942 in Winnipeg, MB. She was a cook by trade all her life. She started at Pony Corral and then moved to Town & Country. She then went on to cook for CP Rail.

  • My condolences to the family. Leona was a good friend to me. She helped me through some hard times in my life. She also told me what cards to pick at 141 ... she told me how to win ticket draws. She said in the spring you could find money on the ground that had been lost in the winter snow...she was right! We had a lot of fun going out when we were both younger back in the "party days". Leona had a beautiful smile and a catchy laugh-I will always remember her that way. I will miss her. Rest in Paradise my friend. - Posted by: Joanne McNabb (Friend) on: May 28, 2014

  • My dearest Nan you will always be missed and never forgotten. I will always remember the good times we had and cherish every time we spent with you! Unfortunately God had other plans for you. I just wanted you to know that I love you and always will. You will forever be in my heart and when I go to bingo I will always think of you and I thank you for taking such good care of my children for me. Thanks for helping me turn into the woman I am today! I miss you!!! - Posted by: Angela (grand daughter) on: May 27, 2014
