Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Leona was always willing to share her knowledge, which was extensive, in a professional manner. She would never stoop to be condescending. She was a true Master of her profession. Until Covid cut our visits totally out I would enjoy visiting her in Deer Lodge and had the fortune of sharing by invitation her 75th birthday. This is how I will remember Leona. She was radiant and looked absolutely stunning. My condolences to her family and especially to Jeanette who was her Guardian Angel. - Posted by: Joy Buettner (Friend and Colleague ) on: Aug 21, 2022

  • My condolences to Leona's family and friends. I worked with Leona for many years at the RE/MAX office. She was a very kind and sweet lady. I know she will be missed. With deepest sympathy. - Posted by: Lesley Cass (Coworker) on: Aug 20, 2022

  • I knew Leona as a kind and honest woman who worked diligently as a real estate professional, who listened to her clients and tried to find the home they were hoping to find. I appreciated her ongoing interest in people she met through her work on our behalf. - Posted by: Susan Rusk (Neighbour/Friend) on: Aug 20, 2022
