There were was a move to Edmonton during the early years but eventually they returned to Medicine Hat. In 1974, Leona took a job at McBride’s Bakery; it was here that opportunity and skill came together to create something special. Leona was a fantastic cook and baker, those of us that were lucky enough to have her make our favorite meal or goodies will not soon forget the love she put into everything she touched. Leona’s true joy was her grandchildren, she made sure that each and every one of them received as much Grandma love as possible (and treats). Leona’s generosity extended well beyond her family and friends, she spent many years volunteering for her Church, the CWL, Blood Bank, St Joseph’s, as well as numerous other organizations.
