OBITUARY - E. LEONA (COOK) POTTORFF

E. Leona POTTORFF was born February 6, 1912, daughter of William A. and Nellie L. (FUGATE) COOK in Williston, North Dakota. She passed away October 25, 2000 at the Clearview Nursing Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa at the age of 88 years, eight months and 19 days.

In 1929 she married Glen POTTORFF. To this union were born six children: RoJean, Deloris, Bob, Glenda, Janet and Gary.

Left to mourn Leona's passing are her children and spouses: RoJean and Harry LOGHRY of Englewood, Florida, Deloris and Lee AYERS of Webster City, Iowa, Bob and Mary Ann POTTORFF of Mount Ayr, Glenda and Paul KASPER of Lacyane, Kansas, Janet and Jack PERRY of Ellsworth, Iowa and Gary and Gloria POTTORFF of Indianola, Iowa; 24 grandchildren, many great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren; and lots of nieces, nephews and friends.

Leona was preceded in death by her parents, William and Nellie COOK; three sisters, Viola SWIETLIK, Arleta COOK and Helen VOWLES; a brother Wayne COOK; an infant son; and her ex-husband.

Leona was a loving mother and grandmother. At this year's family reunion she had 70 family members there and not all were present. She enjoyed playing bingo and cards at the congregate meal site and spent many an hour crocheting dolls which her family and friends will enjoy for time to come.

Services were held Saturday, October 28, 2000 at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home of Mount Ayr with Reverend Michael DRUHL officiating. Musicians were Debbie CANNON and Paul KASPER. Casket bearers were Jerry LOGHRY, Raymond AYERS, Richard AYERS, Randy POTTORFF, Bobby POTTORFF, Rodney PERRY, Galen POTTORFF and Greg POTTORFF. Honorary pallbearers were Rochelle SLEDGE, JoAnn DUFF, Diana PERRY, Tilena MEEK, Connie PALMERTON and Gaylene JONES.

Leona was laid to rest at Marshalltown Cemetery, Benton, Iowa.
