Obituary

 Floria Leonard was born October 28, 1929, in Pumpkin Center, OK to Moody and Nettie (Bogle) Lewis.  She passed away Sunday, June 5, 2022, in Weatherford, OK at the age of 92.  Floria grew up in the Lawton area and moved to Altus as a young woman.  In Altus she worked in a laundry as a clerk.  She married Donnie Lee Leonard on October 14, 1949, just before he went to serve in the Korean Conflict.  Floria stayed in Altus and went to work for Southwestern Bell as an operator and later at Kelwoods Factory as a supervisor and seamstress.  The couple welcomed their daughter while in Altus and the family lived there until 1969 before relocating to Hinton.  They moved to Ardmore in 1973 and onto the Oklahoma City area in 1974.  Floria moved back to the Hinton area after Don's passing to be close to Donna and her family.  Floria loved flowers and at one time plowed up her entire backyard to plant a garden of them.  She was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother, great, and great-great grandmother, always going above and beyond for her family.  She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Altus.

 

Floria was preceded in death by her parents, Moody and Nettie Lewis, husband, Don Leonard and 3 siblings, Arthur Lewis, George Lewis, and Lillie Gamblin.

 

Floria is survived by her daughter Donna Wright and husband Danny, grandchildren, Lonnie Wright and wife Karen, and Libby Wright, great-grandchildren, Taylir Wright, Haley Wright, Jake Wright, Lily Wright, and Brynn Wright, and great-great-granddaughter, Myla Wright all of Hinton, OK, niece, Nancy Gamblin, and nephews, Harold Gamblin and wife Mary and Earl Gamblin and wife Sheila as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
