Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • I met Leonard in 1958 when I was spending time in Winnipeg with my sister, Ione and her husband, Eddy Toews. Leonard and Mitzi often visited and I've never forgotten what a lovely couple they were. I was only 17, but loved baking pies and tried to have a fresh one made when we knew they were coming. Leonard loved pie! We are so sorry for your loss. His was a life well-lived. - Posted by: Barb and Dale Kelman (the late Ione Toews' sister and brother-in-law) on: Aug 07, 2017
