Leora loved to square dance and met Sterling at a dance hall in Salem. Leora and Sterling raised their family in Payson and then in 1978 moved to West Mountain, where there were many family gatherings and Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners that would usually include a card game won by Leora. She lived for visits from her children and grandchildren and made sure that with each visit they left with a full belly.

For the past 14 years, Leora has attended the Senior Citizens in Payson where she made many friends.
