Leona Woehl Lord


(Nov. 4, 2008)

Leona Woehl Lord of Powell died Tuesday, Nov. 4 after a short hospital stay.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, Harry J. Woehl, in Chicago, Ill., and her second husband, Ted B. Lord, of Powell; her mother, Martha Shumanski of Chicago, Ill., her father, Joseph Battaglia, who was born in Palermo, Sicily (Itay); and her brothers Charles, Frank, and Joseph Battaglia, all of Chicago, Ill.

She is survived by her only son, James P. Woehl, three grandchildren, Joy Powers of Atlanta, Ga., James H. Woehl of Tucson, Ariz., and Juliana Guzman of Powell; and four great-grandchildren.

Leona's confirmation verse of John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life," gives comfort.

A memorial services will be held at Memory Gardens Cemetery in Arlington Heights, Ill., at a later date.

Thompson Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.
