Dear sister of Curtis Marshall, and predeceased by her sisters Olive Lane, Martha Prodaniuk, Yvonne Henry, and brothers Garnet, Kenneth, Walter, and Dan Marshall. Remembered lovingly by her many nieces and nephews. . Leona Fraser was born in Coe Hill, Ontario in 1923. The 3rd of 9 children, she went to a one room school in Ormsby. Leona was a strong woman who survived the depression and worked in a munitions plant making shell casings during WW2. She worked hard all of her life and successfully raised her two daughters as a single mother. She was an incredible cook, a master of crosswords and cribbage and was the undefeated Scrabble champion. Leona’s love of animals (especially cats), reading and current events has been passed down to her family, who will miss her deeply.”
