Our sympathy to the family of Leona. From her Sisters of Delta Kappa Gamma, Rho Chapter. We will miss her. Nancy Ruby, DKG member.

Leona was a very special person who graced our family with her presence. Leona was a giving person and filled with kindness. Thank you Leona for persevering the Ziesemer family bench and donating it back to your late husband's grandparents site. Thank you for this Blessing.

I worked with Leona at the Herschbach Law Firm, our desks being right next to each other. She was a very sweet lady. I have some receipes she shared with me. Last week I thought about Leona because I went to a wake at the O'Neill Funeral Home in Lockport, and I drove by what I thought was the house she lived in along Route 7. My thoughts and prayers are with Leona's family.

Mrs. Ziesemer was my homeroom and home economics teacher at Joliet West. Of all the teachers I've had, she was the one I remember with the most affection and gratitude. Her kindness and graciousness helped to make the transition to high school easier, from the very first period of the very first day. My prayers are with her family.

May God comfort her family just now. "Mrs. Brown" was our homeroom teacher, an encourager for 4 years,

JTHS class of 1956, most recently a friend.

My thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Ziesemer's family. She was my teacher in the 60's at JTHS.
