With sadness the family announces the death of Jeanne Leakos occurred peacefully at home surrounded by her family on Monday, December 19, 2022. She is survived by her children; Sandra (Stewart) Foster, Steven (Shona) Leakos, Suzanne Leakos, Mark Leakos, Robert (Gina) Leakos, Richard (Rhonda) Leakos, twelve grandchildren, two great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband James, daughter-in-law Wanda and her 10 siblings.
Jeanne was born in 1927 in Bellevue, SK. She attended nursing school in Prince Albert and met her husband James in Calgary. They moved to New York where James did his residency at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital. They moved back to Saskatoon in 1959, where they raised their six children eventually moving to the farm south of Saskatoon. She moved back into Saskatoon in 2013 where she lived until her passing.
Until the pandemic, mom attended church every Sunday in person but since she has been attending on line and praying the Rosary daily. Mom enjoyed ceramics, painting, puzzles, Sudoku, aqua size and playing trivia crack with her friend Faye. Mom enjoyed spending time with family. She hosted many holiday gatherings on the farm and always included family and friends so no one was alone on special holidays.
In lieu of flowers, for those so wishing, memorial donations may be made to the Saskatoon Food Bank.
The Mass of Christian Burial will be Celebrated by Fr. Stefano Penna on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Paul’s Roman Catholic Cathedral. (720 Spadina Crescent E, Saskatoon, SK.)
