98, of Kingston, died in her sleep Wednesday morning, April 10, 2019 in her home. She was born April 29, 1920 on the family farm, Southeast of Clifford, to Edward Delbert and Florence Ellen (Wilson) Albertson. She married Eugene Henderson June 23, 1942 in Detroit. He died July 17, 2000.

She was an active member of Kingston United Methodist Church, always helping with meals and luncheons. Leona enjoyed quilting and was a member of the Thumb Thimble Quilting Group. She loved to read; her favorite was the Harry Potter series. Leona tended to her plants and orchids. An avid bird watcher, she threw them seed out her kitchen window.

We have broken hearts with the news of your Mother's passing. The Marquardt Family have loved her deeply as the years have past and generation had an opportunity to meet Leona. All the Marquardt children as they went through the school and ate her delicious lunches and in the past few years as the next generation meet her when we visited to sing her Christmas Carols. She always told us how much she enjoyed it but little did she know it was the highlight of our Family Christmas!! We know we sang off key and not everyone knew all the words but she would always sit, smile and just let us get those three songs in, the same three every year. It was always so precious watching her talk to the little ones, get a hug (that you could tell she loved)and sometimes a kiss or two. Then the rest of the family would get our Christmas hug. It was always so special. We are really going to miss Leona this Christmas and she will be on our minds the day we all are together, but she will be in our hearts forever. She was an amazing woman and loved by all that knew her. We pray for you and your family and hope the memories that are shared with you in the days to come will bring comfort.
Much love,
Dale and Ellen
