HARRIS, Leonora Alice
January 4, 1926 — January 27, 2020
It is with heartfelt sadness our family announces the passing of Leonora Harris at the inspiring age of 94 years old.
Leonora enjoyed a healthy and eventful life that consisted of decades of glorious travel to her home away from home in Maui. Leonora’s love for sewing, baking and gardening were skills of hers that her family so greatly adored. Her loving soul for her husband, stepchildren, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be remembered forever.
Leonora had great wisdom, a quick wit and an appreciated sense of humor. Her genuine laugh, precious eye rolls and headshakes were customary to much family banter and discussions. She relished in opening her home to everyone, family and friends alike, to enjoy a beautiful swim in her prized pool and yard. Family barbeques, Christmas dinners and a good full bowl of her famous “shipwreck” will forever be etched in everyone’s hearts.
Leonora had a love of the Arts; she attended many plays, dance recitals and grandchildren’s hockey games. She was always up for a good day of shopping, enjoying the beaches in Maui or just family time by her pool. Leonora enjoyed a great meal and good laugh and appreciated everyone in her life. She prided herself on her family and endlessly loved and cared for her husband Bill.
Leonora leaves all of her family and friends in rich memories. Her strength, determination and positive attitude will be fondly remembered.
Leonora is survived by her best friend and love of her life, William “Bill” Harris; her sister Pat Petersen; her four stepchildren Brad (Gail), Karen (Doug), Brian (Rose) and Barry; her seven grandchildren Joanna, Corey, Bobbi, Robbie, Michelle, Amanda and Mitchell; her five great-grandchildren Ava, Savannah, Slade, Wyatt and Blake; along with many of her nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews and many lifelong friends. Leonora is predeceased by her parents, Charlie and Alice Endersby and three brothers, Chuck, Bill and Donny.
No funeral will be held but a private family gathering will be planned for a later date.
