Leonora Kepple

December 3, 1929 — February 29, 2020

Leonora Hazel Kepple, 90 of New Alexandria, was taken to her heavenly home on February 29, 2020.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years (Bob) and by her brother (James Pierce).  Leonora was born in New Alexandria to James and Hazel Pierce in 1929.

She and Bob had four children: Robert (Martha), Daniel (Debbie), Fred (Ruth Ann), and Amy (Kimo) Turner.  She had six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Leonora was an active church member at New Life Presbyterian Church in Harrison City.  For many years she taught Sunday school, women’s groups, and vacation Bible school.

In addition to her busy life as a farmer’s wife, her many interests included baking, reading, gardening, and knitting.  She organized libraries in churches and Christian schools and taught many women and children the skill of Scripture memorization.
