“The song is ended, but the melody lingers on…”
Leona Pezzot, 99 years young, passed away in Courtenay, B.C. on March 9, 2014. Leona was born in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan on Feb 1, 1915 into a family of 9 siblings. Leona is predeceased by her husband Antonio Pezzot at 100 years young.
She is survived by her sister Irene in Alberta and all of her children: Winnie, Walter, Barbara, Phil, Ernest, Wilfred, Kenneth, Myrtle, and Raymond. “Lee” & “Tony” have created such a life legacy with 5 generations that there are far too many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren to list.
Leona had many active interests such as Lionesses, Old Time Fiddlers, Square dancing, fishing, camping, and local ballgames. She & Tony were incredible, professional gardeners who nourished many others for years with food and brightened our world with flowers. She was a lovely soul, generous, and always present at family and community functions to give a helping hand.
A celebration of Life will take place at a later date so she can be reunited with Antonio and dance together once again when flowers are blooming in the garden.
A light from our family has gone
A voice we loved is still
A place is vacant in our home
No-one can ever fill
