HEALEY – Leona Margaret (nee Tomlenovich)

March 1, 1925 – September 23, 2010

Leona died peacefully at home in the presence of God and her children, surrounded by the love and prayers of her family and friends.

She is survived by her children, Tom, Paul (Joni), David (Vicki) of Reno, and Glenna (Jim); her grandchildren, Tuesday (Guilio), Alex, Chris (Bree), Jennifer, Alan, Spencer, Graham, and Isaac; her sister Christine of Toronto; as well as, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and kind friends. Leona was predeceased by her husband Jack.

Leona was a 1949 RN graduate from the Grey Nuns’ Hospital in Regina. In Regina she met and married Jack, and they moved to Calgary in 1960. Leona’s gifts of giving, listening and caring were returned to her in friendships throughout her life; and during her month-long illness, family and friends united through phone calls, correspondence, visits and miracles. Each of you held a cherished place in her life and are encouraged to continue your special relationship with our mother through acts of kindness. Our family gives thanks for your love, kindness, support and prayers during this time. We especially appreciate Dr. Scott Wakefield and the Palliative-Care team for their care and guidance throughout Leona’s illness.

In her journal Leona writes,
“Let us go our separate ways in love but always remain together in spirit. God bless you and peace to you.”

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Pius X Catholic Church (2424 – 24th Avenue N.W.) on Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. Private Family Graveside Service will follow at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Leona Healey, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park, Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.

    Leona was a rare and special woman who taught me so much … from the mundane task of correctly cutting my toenails to avoid ingrown nails to the grace and graciousness I witnessed as she held my hand and tried to put me at my ease as she lay sick in bed and I visited her for the last time. Heaven is celebrating the arrival of one of the great ones.

    You will always be Tommie to me. Our years at the Regina Grey Nuns Hospital will be forever a time of great memories, never to be forgotten. When I came from Montreal to Calgary you were the first Grey Nun grad I met, I felt like I was coming home again! You have been instrumental in organizing our alumnae dinners for years and have held our group together with love and caring. At our Regina re-union just ten days ago prayers were said for your recovery. Sadly, it was not to be and angels wrapped you in their loving arms and took you home.
    Tommie, I will miss you.
    Aileen MacDonald nee McCoy-class of 1948.

  7. Dear Glenna and family – my sincere sympathy for you all. I have great memories of sitting around with Leona trying to figure out the ins and outs of life while chaos reigned around us … she was a lovely person and I was happy to call her my friend for a time in my life. Take care. Jude

  8. I got to know your Mom over the years of our friendship Tom and it was so nice to discover she had grown up in the Allan Hills south of Saskatoon and knew my family from the same area. I know she was a “tower of strength” for you and always had great advice for you. She’ll be greatly missed but not forgotten by all who knew her and loved her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you lay your Mom to rest. God Bless.
