Leona Lillian Irene Dill Teter
Birth: Sep. 5, 1913

Union County
Iowa, USA
Death: Apr. 6, 1998

Leona Lillian Irene Dill was the daughter of Anna Georgia Miller and her first husband. When she was 15 yeas old, John Edward Siegfried became her loving step-father. She had a younger sister, Earla May, who died of meningitis at the age of 25 months. She was the mother of one daughter, Daisy Ann, and one son, Noel Edward.

Known as "Le", my grandmother was truly unique. As a child, it was also a treat to open the present Grandma sent - because heaven only knew what it might be. Some of them are still talked about and treasured today: the woven straw chicken-shaped bread baskets, a Balinese fertility goddess doll (for a 12-year-old girl), a "seeing eye" genie brooch, a Turkish soldier doll, a Norwegian boot mug, Oriental rice cups, camel bells, etc. And, a Magic 8-ball to assist us in making important life decisions.

She gave us a love of books and the adventures we could take from our own home, not just those found in a book, but the ones created in your own mind through an active imagination.

When Grandma died, she had requested cremation and a very dignified walnut box was chosen for the container. Afterward, my mom, sister and I wished we could have found a "genie bottle" instead. It would have portrayed the true essence of Grandma!
