Our beloved Mother and Grandmother, Ramona Lorraine Leschak, died November 15, 2014 at the age of 85.
She will be deeply missed by her children: Paula (Tom) Rose, Jim (Kim) Leschak and her grandchildren Jessica and Aaron Leschak. She is also survived by her sisters, Faye (DuWayne) Hasse and Naomi (Jerry) Maher, her brother Stan Spar and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 1/2 years, Nick, and son Michael, brothers Charles and Johnny Spar.
Ramona was a woman of strong faith and commitment to the Lord. As a member of Faith Lutheran Church she volunteered as a Sunday school teacher and was active in the altar guild for many years. She was an Eastern Star and served as Worthy Matron several times. She was, without a doubt, the “world’s best” Mother and Grandmother.
Ramona was born in Mora, MN, the oldest of six children. She attended country school and later high school in Mora. As a young woman she worked as a nurse’s aide in the Mora hospital. It was there she met her future husband, Nick. The young couple moved to Isle where they started their own business and raised a family.
She was known for her kindness, compassion and generosity to others. For years she went door-to-door collecting money for the American Cancer Society. Her interests included watercolor and pencil sketching. She was an avid reader and particularly enjoyed books about the Amish. She loved angels and butterflies. Our angel is now at peace with her Heavenly Father.
A memorial service was held November 21 at Faith Lutheran Church in Isle, MN. Rev. Paul Brown and Rev. Nicholas Skogen officiated. Music was provided by Carolyn Nutt and the Tramm family. Spring inurnment will be at Sunset Park Cemetery in Isle.
