    Sandra Thorne Borgon (1942) writes:
    My grandmother's name was Leona and her grandfather was Leonhard -- so she was in effect, named after him.

    Leona Marie Ritter worked as a "central" which was a phone operator and that's how she met my grandfather, JJ. He was 37 and rich and she was 18.

    Leona was a heavy smoker, it was "quite" the thing to do in the 30's and 40's. She died from severe heart trouble at age 66. I really loved her - she was very nice. She died when I was 11.
