She attended Cook Christian School in Phoenix, AZ and was voted Mother of the Year in only her 2nd year. She specialized in Christian education and the music ministry.

It was her mother's dream for one of her children to play piano for the church and Leona did well by her. She was always playing as her husband's assistant in worship. She would select songs to accompany his sermons. A preacher's wife, she enjoyed bead work, piano, word searches, reading, the children at church, collecting religious comic pictures, Sam Bradford and the Sooners.
