"After a two hour wake for Leona Howland Maffei in Syracuse, we attended a very meaningful service to commemorate her death. She was buried in the family plot with her husband, Neil, daughter, Carol Ann and son, Joe.
In the afternoon we gathered at Francesca’s Cucina for a wonderful Italian meal, the kind of food Leona liked and a wonderful way to honor her."
Many thanks go out to Chuck Lochner and Wendy Wood Osterhout for taking photos during the day, and then getting them ready for 'publication'--Great work!
You will find their photos on the right hand side of this blog--under December Birthdays. Look for 'Family Reunions and Get-Togethers' and then click on the Link for Leona's Funeral.
