I go to St. Dominic's church in Holton. I am a volunteer that give Communion to the Nursing Homes Residents. I Have been one of the ministers that gave Communion to Leita . She was a delightful person and I so enjoyed visiting with her in my short times with her. I told her, she was a remarkable person. I will miss her, you have my sympathy.
God bless Jean Lierz

Relatives and Friends of Leita,

St. Augustine said that to sing is to pray twice. Leita's life was a song of sharing. I recall Corky and Leita sharing with us when we were all busy raising families, precious time for electrical advice and hints for domestic harmony. I perceived Leita being a pleasant reflection of Uncle Lawrence's sharing and mentoring disposition. While during their CA Allis Chalmers tractor to fill silo when they lived at the Gering place, NE of Lancaster. We shared effort to feed a beautiful herd of Angus cattle. Let us strive to love one another as we deal with the current trials that we SHARE.
