Preceded in death by her husband of 38 years, Grover Wm. Galloway Jr. in 1999. Parents Curtis C. and Armeda Newman and brother, Lowell Newman.

Left to cherish the memories of their life spent with Leona are her children; William M. Galloway of Masontown, Heidi (Pete) Ezzi of Uniontown, and Wesley Galloway of Masontown. Brother Linn (Karen) Newman of McClellandtown. Many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Leona’s family would like to thank the caring staff of both Cloverdale Personal Care Home in Masontown and Amedisys Hospice for their compassionate care given to her during her final days.
