Lona was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who loved her family dearly. She was affectionately known as “Grammy” to her grandchildren and great grandchildren, who she cherished spending time with. Lona was the perfect hostess and always welcomed everyone with open arms into her home. She had an artist’s heart and enjoyed painting, writing poetry, and arts and crafts. Lona had impeccable style and was always dressed and accessorized perfectly, particularly with her canine children to whom she was also devoted. She enjoyed collecting mementos (she had the amazing ability to find bargains wherever she went) and treasured all the gifts she received. She will forever be remembered for her spunky nature and her determination to remain independent her entire life. Lona will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
