Mrs. Evelyn M. (Bissaillon) Leonesio, 94, of Adams, died Thursday morning, July 12, 2018, at Berkshire Medical Center, North Adams.

She was born in Williamstown on November 27, 1923, a daughter of the late Victor and Ida (Blake) Bissaillon, and attended schools in North Adams.

Mrs. Leonesio worked at the former Sprague Electric Co. in North Adams for a number of years, and had also worked at the former W.R. Grace Co. and Adams Rest Home, both in Adams.

She was an avid reader, and was an expert quilter, who researched historical quilt patterns and crafted many unique quilts. Evelyn kept her creatively decorated house spotless. She loved visits from her three children and grandchildren, and always baked special treats for their arrival. You never went home empty handed. She cherished her special time with her adored niece, Nancy Bishop.
