She grew up and attended school in Marshall. On Sept. 16, 1947, she was united in marriage to Edmon Doom at St. Clotilde Catholic Church in Green Valley. From this union, 12 children were born. The couple farmed and raised their family in rural Cottonwood until retiring in 1985 and moving to Cottonwood. Leona was an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Cottonwood. She and Ed were charter members and Leona taught religion for many years. She volunteered at Senior Dining, delivered Meals on Wheels and was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary. Leona was a wonderful mother. She will be remembered as a provider as she always prepared in abundance, whether it was food, baking bread, or lending a hand. She was very passionate about her family, but her greatest legacy will be her unconditional love for all.
