Leona was a long-time member of Southside Christian Church in Munster where she enjoyed involvement in many groups including the Senior Saints and proudly spent time as Past-President of the National Women’s Missionary Union. She spent a lifetime collecting, trading and owning antiques, including running her own business, “Parsley’s Antiques”. Leona and her husband Boyd would frequent Shipshewana often as well as maintained their own Antique booths in Crown Point. Leona loved being outdoors and loved her visits to the parks and beaches. More than anything, Leona loved her family and was especially proud of her earned title of “Granny”. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
