Uncle Nester and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of Aunt Leola. We remember her as a beautiful lady who was very proud of her family. I'm glad Dad and Ethel got to see you both on Saturday. He has wonderful memories of the time together. All Our Love, Bonnie and Jim Guyot - Leon's oldest daughter Sorry we can't be there in person because of a prior funeral commitment in our family.

So sorry to hear of Lee's passing. Our prayers go out to Nester and the family. She was a lovely lady. With deepest sympathy.

My heart goes out to the entire Lappe family. Leola was my mothers roommate at Mt Carmel. She was such a great lady and a wonderful friend to my mom. They were the perfect match. Leola was so sweet to me when my mom passed away in January 2016. I will remember her always and keep the family in my prayers. Mindy (Lois Haley's daughter)
