Jannien Leonard

Jannien Emilie Leonard was born on October 11, 1939, in Cedar Rapids, the daughter of Frank and Ann (Broz) Nugent.  Jannien graduated from Waterloo West High in 1957.  She was united in marriage to Wayne Leonard on March 3, 1963, and raised four children.  Jannien began her working career as a social worker for the State of Iowa.  In 1991, she received her nursing degree and was a Rehabilitation Nurse on Covenant Medical Center for 17 years, until her retirement in 2008. Jannien’s love of the ocean and traveling led her to her favorite vacations in San Diego. She was a mentor to many and had a heart of gold that left an impression on all that she met. She always had a hilarious or heartwarming story to tell, and her delivery was unparalleled.

 

Jannien died at the age of 79 on July 8, 2019 of a sudden illness, at MercyOne Hospital.  She was preceded in death by her parents.  Jannien is survived by her husband; four children, Tim (Linda) Leonard of McDonough, Georgia, Tom (Cheryl) Leonard of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Ted Leonard of Quincy, Massachusetts, and Mary Kae Horslund of Waterloo; a sister, Joyce (Bill) O’Hara of Cedar Rapids; a brother, Jim (Pam) Nugent of Elk Run Heights; four grandchildren; five great grandchildren; and three great great grandchildren; six nieces and nephews.

There will be a luncheon at Landmark Commons following the service.
