Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • My deepest condolences on the death of Leonora. She subbed for me many times over the years, and we became friends when we discovered she was the best friend of my Aunt Genevieve when they were younger, both living in Central Butte. She was a wonderful kind, gentle person and my classes all were happy to see her. - Posted by: Carolyn Lumsden (Friend) on: Apr 27, 2023
