Carol Ann (Mizin) Leoni, 73, formerly of West Wyoming, passed away peacefully on January 30 at Golden Years Homestead in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Born in Kingston, she was the daughter of Olga (Bunevich) Mizin and the late John Mizin. She was a graduate of West Wyoming High School and Nesbitt Hospital School of Nursing and worked for many years compassionately caring for elderly patients as a registered nurse.
Carol is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Geno Leoni; her children Christine Metcalf and husband Robert of Virginia, Gina Becerra and husband Ramon of Indiana, and Gino Leoni and wife Maureen of Arizona; brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. She will be especially missed by her grandchildren John and Silvia Metcalf.
Carol was formerly a member of St. Monica’s Parish, West Wyoming, and found fellowship in a spiritual community after she moved to Indiana. She loved music and daisies, spending time with her family and friends, and being “Grammie” to her grandchildren and grand dogs.
A blessing service will be held on Monday, February 7, at 11 a.m. in the Metcalfe Shaver Kopcza Funeral Home, Wyoming, with Reverend Joseph J. Pisaneschi of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish officiating.
Entombment will be in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Carverton.
Friends may call from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, February 6, at the Metcalfe Shaver Kopcza Funeral Home, Wyoming.
The family would like to thank Visiting Nurses of Fort Wayne and all of the Golden Years Homestead nurses and aides for the wonderful care they provided during the final stages of Carol’s life.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Penn FTD Center (https://www.med.upenn.edu/ftd/), which provides research, care, and support for early-onset frontotemporal degeneration spectrum disorders, or to the West Wyoming Fire Department.
