October 5, 1923 – May 31, 2023
In Loving Memory ~
Leona was born October 5, 1923, on the farm at Joffre, Alberta. She lived and worked on her father’s farm at Joffre, Alberta until she married her husband Raymond Leo Duffy on January 8, 1946.
In the next six years they had 4 children. They remained working on her father’s farm for the next 6 years when they moved six miles north to a quarter section that they had purchased.
In 1960 they sold that farm and moved to the Buck Lake area, where she remained until the fall of 2022. She was then moved to the Rimbey hospital and then on to the Breton Care Center, where she remained until her passing on May 31, 2023.
She was predeceased by her father, Leon Olaf Olofson, mother, Mary Olive Olofson, brother Delbert Olofson, and husband Raymond Duffy.
She will be remembered fondly by her family of 4 children, William (Bill) Raymond (Rita), Danny Lee, (Vera), John Terrance (Kathy), Leona Mary (Bruce), 8 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and 4 great great grandchildren.
She will be greatly missed by family and friends.
A celebration of life will be held in Buck Lake at a later date yet to be determined.
