Leona was born on May 18, 1944 in Elk River to Walter and Christina (Danamon) Hansen. She was married and had five children. She worked as a PCA for home health care until she was disabled in 1989. Leona was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church and lived most of her life in the St. Cloud/Sauk Rapids. She loved puzzles, bingo, crafts, music, antiques, painting, wheelchair dancing, gardening, and making homemade glorified rice. Leona was loyal, welcoming and accepting of others, determined and always wanted “something pretty”. One of her accomplishments was getting her GED after raising five children, and more importantly, she was proud of her children and grandchildren.

Survivors include his sons and daughters, Daryn (Tammy) Kula of Hartford, WI, Todd (Tamara) Kula of Foley, DeLynn Kuechle of Waite Park, and Melisa (Jason) Miller of Swanville; sister, Elaine Hanson of Foley; grandchildren, Tearayne, Rhett, Gena, Harlie, Isabella, Hunter, Tjade, Bryan, Jessica, Brandon and Danielle; and 8 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; son, Gene; and his siblings, Alvin Hansen, Alvera Stevens, Donna Cox and Lee Hansen.

Special thanks to St. Cloud’s Hospital for their care of Leona and to Trinity Lutheran Church for their lifelong support.
