Leona Wishart

unknown - February 22, 2013

Leona Corr Wishart, 89, of Fayetteville, passed away on Friday, Feb. 22, 2013, peacefully while holding the hand of her loving husband, Lawrence Wishart.
Leona (Mom) was born a short distance away in Lee Center, outside of Rome. She met Lawrence in 1943 but waited until after the war to marry on June 1, 1946.
Leona and Lawrence moved to North Syracuse where Leona worked as an executive assistant (secretary) for over 30 years. They moved to Fayetteville in 1960 where she raised their five children. Leona loved having family gatherings where she not only made the best food you could imagine, but she made each family member or guest feel like they were her favorite person. She was loved by everyone she knew.
Leona is survived by her husband, Lawrence; her sons, Wayne, Warren (Ines), and Bill (Leesa); daughters, Wendy (Michael) and Linda. There are also seven grandchildren who will miss her very much. Of special note are Linda’s daughters Kristen and Mikayla who took special care of Grandma over these past couple of years.
