Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 1, 1924
Death: Jun. 18, 2012

Leona (Lee) died peacefully in her bed on Monday, June 18, 2012 in Boise, Idaho, at the age of 88. She went with grace and dignity just as she lived her life.

Her early years were spent in Reno, Nevada where she met and married the love of her life, Preston L. Funkhouser, Jr., who predeceased her. They had 58 wonderful years together.

Her main goal in life was to support him in his profession and to be a mother. She made a home wherever his job took them. She was an avid bridge player, bowler, golfer and was very active in many civic activities. In her 80's she was the ringer for her Bocci team. Her talent was boundless when it came to a sewing machine. She was a 21 year survivor of breast cancer.

Leona was an inspiration and role model that at the time we may not have appreciated. She will be missed by all those lives she touched.

She is survived by her two sons, Preston Funkhouser III and wife, Charlene, of Clearwater, Idaho, and Gary Funkhouser, Sr. and wife, Sandra, of Boise, Idaho; one daughter, Teri Malkin, of Rio Vista, California; one sister, Dorothy Bailey, of Modesto, CA; three granddaughters, three grandsons, five great-granddaughters, three great-grandsons and two great-great-grandsons.

A Memorial Service will be held at Mountain View Masonic Cemetery, Reno, Nevada at a future date where she will finally be with reunited her husband.
