Jean M Leonhart

January 5, 1930 — February 1, 2023


Jean M. Leonhart, 93, of Cheyenne, WY, peacefully passed away on February 1, 2023, in Cheyenne, WY, after a brief illness.  She was born January 5, 1930, in Stillwater, OK, to the late Chet and Alice (Treat) Hall of Stillwater, OK.

After graduating from Wadena High School in Iowa in 1947, Jean met Woody, the love of her life.  They were married two years later on July 27, 1949, and went on to have five children, Duane, Charles, James, Alicia and Marla.  In 1963, they moved their family to Simi Valley, CA.  Jean loved kids and was actively involved at Park View Elementary School in numerous capacities for over 45 years.  Although they had their own names, her children were often called by numerous names before she got to the right one!

Jean was a long-time L.A. Lakers fan, an avid reader, and a self-proclaimed magnet queen – her refrigerator was completely covered in magnets.  Jean loved teasing, and everyone knew she was around when they heard her distinctive laugh (which was heard often).  Jean was an excellent cook and baker and was well-known for her homemade noodles, which were requested any time family went home.  In 2018, she moved to Pointe Frontier in Cheyenne to be closer to her kids, and she absolutely loved Apartment #38.  Thank you to everyone at Pointe Frontier who took such excellent care of her.  She will be missed.

Jean is survived by her sons, Charles (Jonette) Leonhart of Burns, WY, and James (Kathy) Leonhart of Cheyenne, WY; daughters, Alicia (Andrew) Clements of Cheyenne, WY, and Marla (Fabian) Schilly of Woodland Park, CO; sister, Kelly (Hall) Piepmeier of Cookeville, TN; brother, David Hall of Austin, TX; and many loving grandchildren, cousins, nieces and nephews.  Jean was preceded in death by her husband, Woodrow; a son, Duane; a grandson, Jared; her parents; and siblings, Robert and Shirley.

Cremation has taken place and services will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2023 at 4:00 pm at Schrader, Aragon & Jacoby Funeral Home, located at 2222 Russel Avenue in Cheyenne, WY, with a dinner gathering immediately following.  In lieu of flowers,  please consider making a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, a nonprofit organization Jean was passionate about.  This is a celebration of Jean's life, so please come as you are!

Jannene, we were lost and you found us.  We will never forget you.  Davis Hospice Center, especially Cathleen, Susan and Sally, took such wonderful care of Jean and her family.  We are especially grateful for you and you will forever be in our hearts.
