Lynn Leone was born on July 6, 1937 in North Hollywood, California to Raymond and Etta Pearl (Spivey) March. As a young child she and her family relocated to Oklahoma living on Cherokee Indian reservations.
Leone corresponded through letters with the man that she adored and fell in love with for several years before their actual face to face meeting. Leslie and Leone discovered quickly after their face to face meeting that they were deeply in love and were married on May 23, 1953 in Miami, Oklahoma. They made their home in Coffeyville where they have raised their children, attended and served in the Jehovah Witness Church. Leone was a very spiritual person with a personal relationship with her Heavenly Father reading her Bible daily and making sure she carried it everywhere she went. When she loved someone she loved with her heart. Those closest to her heart were first her heavenly father, her husband, her children, her grandchildren and friends. She enjoyed time spent with her children and grandchildren simply talking and brushing through her hair. In addition to spending time with her family, Leone enjoyed reading, sewing, learning new things, working on computer, and collecting over 100 tea pots and several elephants.

With all my love to you all. I am thankful for all the wonderful conversations I had with Leone when we became family. I am grateful for all the time she and Les gave to me freely. She became another grandma for me and I cherish each memory I have.
