  6. Leota was a truly remarkable lady. I have a lot of fond memories of long ago when I was a much younger person visiting with her and all of the family as well. She will be missed tremendously but memories will always remain. So very sorry to hear of her passing and feel a deep loss for all. May God send comforting grace to each and all at this most difficult time. Prayers to each and everyone for uplifting.

    Sister Leota was a sweet lady whose beautiful smile and twinkling eyes spread joy and happiness to all who were blessed to know her. She loved her Lord and church, she loved her family, and she loved others. She was truly a blessing to so many. Her precious legacy will be remembered and cherished by all those who knew her. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) give comfort, strength, and assurance in this time of sorrow. But believers in Christ shall see her again someday, so this is not a time to say “good-bye”, but rather it is a time to just say, “so long, see you later.” Thank God that He gives believers victory over death through our precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    To all family, friends and acquaintance of Leota, I want to express my sorrow in the passing of this one so loved by all. I remember playing with her as a child some. I remember when I would visit my grandparents often her large family, loaded on to their wagon, would be traveling on the road passing his house and would always stop for a few moments and visit, usually speaking from the road to the grandparents and other family members sitting out on the porch in the breezeway. I have happy memories of the whole family.

    Our deepest condolences and prayers for all. Leota was kind, compassionate and loyal to all her family and will be missed by many loving hearts!

  10. Leota was quite a woman. I along with Ronnie have many memories from back in our early years. That was back when everybody was spending time at everybody’s house. She and the family was a lot of fun. She will be missed. She was one of a kind. Special prayers for the family of a special woman.

    I’m listening to The Old Rugged Cross and it fits Leota perfectly. She and I would team up against Tommy and Howard playing spades or rook and we won more than we lost. We, Kellie included, went all around playing softball. Howard was the coach. We spent many years together. They will always be remembered. Prayers to whole family. Love ya Kellie!

  12. Leota had an amazing heart of gold. Her eyes and smile lit up a room and the love and loyalty she had for family was unsurpassed . She came weekly to sit with my parents , Bob and Gussie, to help us keep them at home as long as possible. When my daughter passed, she came in the door cleaning and
    helping in every way possible. She will be missed by many.. Rest in peace dear cousin.
    Till we meet again.
