To all the Teter family:Our thoughts are with you as we remember how much Leona loved and cared about
you. Her presence will be missed by all. Take care and remember how much love she gave to her family.
My heart is broken. My world will never feel the same...Lona was my rock,
my song, my joy and at times my muse. I am selfish. I want her back. I'll need to take the time to look up the word
condolence cause I don't think I got this quite right....I love all you left behind Teters. I love you lots.
Mom - your generous spirit and beautiful soul will be cherished forever. I am proud
to be your soon and will carry on your legacy each and every day. Thank you for your kindness and unconditional love which
allowed me to soar and be authentically me. Love Forever - Matty Lou

I both taught and substituted at Carlisle High School for several years. I received many early morning phone
calls from Leona and she always sounded so bright and cheerful. She was good at her job and I missed hearing her voice after
I am so sorry for your loss.
Garry, I only now just
read of Leona's passing. Please know that my prayers are with you and your family. I met Leona when I had a classroom
at Wilson Middle School and she was a wonderful person!
May our Lord bless and comfort you and your family during this time of grief. Please accept my sincere condolences.
God Bless and may my thoughts and prayers be with you and your family.
Garry and family,
Although it has been many years since I last saw Leona, I still remember what a sweet, kind,
loving, funny person she was. I pray that you all find peace and comfort during this very sad and difficult time.
My sympathy goes out to Garry and his family.
Gary and Matt, I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't read the
obituaries until today. I often would think of the fun we all had and thought of your mother often. Love to all of you
