I am so sad to hear of Aunt Honey's passing. She was my Dad's Aunt, and I have the fondest memories of her growing up. She was always warm and welcoming and supportive of me and my family. I've looked for her the past few years unsuccessfully to stay in touch, but I'm heartened to know how much her family loved and cared for her. Please know that more extended family like me also grieves her loss and loved her life and her example of love and family.

My sincere sympathy and prayers for Leona’s family. I was saddened to hear of her passing. I worked with Lee 18 years at Dr Bilbos office. We stayed in touch after and talked often. She was a lovely lady and will be missed. Very happy to have known her. Peace , Deanna (Dee) Buell

Farewell to my Dear Friend Leona.
Leona and I worked together at Dr. Bilbo and Dr. Scribner's office many years ago and became close friends. It was a wonderful office and we all enjoyed working together and seeing all our patients. Following my move from Syracuse, Leona and I always kept in touch with each other. In fact, she came to visit my family when we moved back to Mass 21 years ago. Since then, we continued our friendship with frequent telephone visits talking about our families, and the many memories that we shared.
Bless you, Dear friend,
~ Carolyn Schiavo - June 9, 2020
Leona was a great lady! I am a better person for having known her these last few years. She was always kind and supportive of any activity we had going on in the facility where she resided. I am so very glad I got to present her with a homemade gift and perform music for her this past winter; she will be very much missed, she was like a grandmother to me.... Rest in peace, my friend.
~ Dawn Johnson - June 4, 2020
Leona was my Mother's roommate for many months. She was always pleasant and chatty. Even after my Mom changed rooms, Lee always greeted me warmly and asked after my Mom and myself. She was a friendly presence, who helped out with greeting cards, schedules, and other tasks. I always enjoyed going in on Saturday afternoons, seeing Lee and a group of friends avidly watching Syracuse football games. I am very sorry for your loss.

Well Mom we made another trip to Lafayette today. Weather was perfect for you and those that could not be with us watched your service on FB. A lifetime of memories to many to count, but sure we will share them when we all get together again. Will miss our daily chats and you were always my favorite weather girl. Love you always. Ronnie

I will forever remember your little red kitchen, the tins you kept of flour and sugar, your spice rack hanging on the wall filled with rows and rows of spices. I’ll remember our trips to McDonald’s and to the library and to Mary’s down the hall who’s Sunkist wrapped gummies made the conversation worth it. Our exciting trips to the mailroom and the laundry room. My Mickey Mouse calculator, I Love You toast, and your smiling cookie jar. You’ve given me a passion, a career that I love.
Recently I called to chat and asked you question after question about your life growing up as a child into adulthood and motherhood, we talked for hours and at one point you paused and asked, “why do you want to know all this... are you writing a book? Honey, it’s not worth it.” Nonnie, you built a legacy that few have. You grew it from the ground and you gave a beautiful life to your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Every ounce of your life was worth it. Over the past few days I’ve kept these memories to myself and listened and in doing so realized that you’ve given these special moments to each and every one of your grandchildren. You were a wonderful mother and grandmother. You will live on forever in heaven, in our children, and in our hearts.

Leona was a great friend to my father, Alan Share during his stay at Menorah Park. Her energy and kindness made us feel welcome at MP almost immediately. So much so that she also became friends with our entire family! I had many great conversations with her in the common room and especially during meals. She just beamed when she spoke of her family, especially the grand and great-grand children.
I will never forget watching SU hoops with her, especially the win over Michigan State to get to the sweet 16 in 2018. She yelled and cheered louder than anyone! I was sure 'Cuse would make it the Final Four with Leona
on our side!!
Can't believe she's gone. She was a beacon of light and Menorah Park will never be the same. I am so sorry for your loss.
~ Harlan Share - June 1, 2020
My condolences to you all, family and friends of Leona. She was a wonderful person, and very special to all of us who knew her.
I spoke to Leona many years ago when I took over my Aunt Angie's genealogy project. I have been able to trace our family history all the way back to the late 200's in northern Italy, and my DNA results show our family development over thousands of years. I haven't worked on this project for many years, but I have folders and folders of information still to be reviewed and digested. We have many famous Italian family ancestors, and our direct Italian descendants arrived in New York from Pietravairano, Italy in the early and mid-1880's. My Dad and Mom are Anthony and Norma DeBottis, who currently reside at Towne Center in Fayetteville, NY, and my ancestral great-grandfather was Antonio DeBottis.
If you have any genealogy information you would like to share, or would like some from me, please let me know - email@example.com.

Farewell my other mother!
You were an integral part of my formative years. I am blessed to have your daughter as one of my closest friends. I will miss stoping by to see you with Laurie. I know you are in a peaceful loving place.
Love and gratitude always.

Dear Family and Friends of Leona,
Leona was a very important part of our family's lives for many, many years. She was a devoted office manager for our father's medical office and a dear friend to the family. We were all so very fond of Leona. My siblings and I are forever grateful for all that Leona did for our father and her tremendous kindness to my mother when they ended up together at Menorah.
Our deepest sympathies.
Mary, Jim, Anne, Judy and Patrick (Bilbo)

I don’t know where to start as you have always been a part of my-life. Thank you so much for allowing me to marry Bobbie.
She means more to me than life and I know the same for you. We have so many memories that they are too numerous to mention. I will miss talking to you , visiting and being able to share our culinary ventures. You will always be part of my heart.
~ Rodney Carroll - May 31, 2020
Mom, mumsie. I miss you so much. I just want to call you! I have so many memories that I am holding onto right now. I will miss our calls daily, Bringing your favorite cooked foods, bringing you to the house for dinner. Calling to ask you stupid questions. I just want to see your beautiful face and that beautiful smile when we would walk in. I know your at peace now no more pain. Your with Bonnie now and all who have gone before you. I will love you forever. So Rest In Peace my sweet Mumsie. Happy trails until we meet again. ??????

I met Lee at Menorah Park where she was a roommate to my mother Evelyn Fix for 3+ years. My mother was so very very fond of Lee as was my family. Lee would always look out for my mother and help her whenever she could. She and my mother became friends right away and aside from sharing family stories, they also shared a strong religious belief, saying their rosary each day. When visiting my mother I also would love to visit with Lee as she was such a sweet lady and always a pleasure to chat with. I recall her being such a great SU sports fan, the ultimate cheerleader. She always enjoyed seeing my dog, Rose, that came frequently for visits. At the time my mother was in the final stages of her life in January 2020 and my sisters, brother and I were there keeping watch, Lee was so very very kind to us, checking in with us and giving us snacks and telling us she was praying for her. Lee came to my mothers services which I know was difficult for her considering her own health issues at the time. After my mother passed away I planned on stopping up to Menorah Park to visit with Lee but than the Corona Virus struck and it was not possible. Lee was by far the sweetest, kindest lady I met at Menorah Park and a very special person.
Please accept my sincere condolences on Lee’s passing. May she Rest In Peace.

Dear Laurie and family,
I am so sorry to read about the passing of you mom, grandmother. I aways enjoyed talking to her at St. Mary's. You are all in my thought and prayers during this difficult time.
All my sympathy,
~ Gayle Resetarits - May 31, 2020
I’m sorry I and my siblings were unable to visit with you these past months due to the virus, but I’m so glad we kept in touch by phone and mail. The kindness you showed my father during his time at Menorah Park was a blessing and a great gift for which we will be ever grateful. That we were able to share the excitement of watching SU football and basketball games together was special for my dad and us kids. The things you did with your friend Alvin for the benefit of the other residents at MP were selfless. Susan, Harlan, Ira & Hugh, and I will miss you greatly - and will always remember you screaming heartily at key points in the SU basketball games! Rest In Peace, friend.
The Share Family
