Leotta touched each life that she encountered through her 80 years. She was loved by all so much, anyone who came over for a visit called her “mom”. She will be remembered for her hard work and dedication towards her family and friends.
Keeping with Leotta’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to Haskett Funeral Home, Exeter (519-235-1220).
Donations to Jessica’s House would be appreciated by the family.
A heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful staff and volunteers at Jessica’s House for their care and compassion towards Leotta.
