Martha Jeanette Leonard, age 98, of Whitestown, Indiana passed away June 6, 2023 at Prairie Lakes Health Campus of Noblesville, Indiana.
She was born April 23, 1925 at Noblesville, Indiana to Ray and Laura (Manship) Clark. She grew up in the northern Jackson Township area and graduated from Cicero High School with the Class of 1943. She then furthered her education at Indiana Business School.
She married Lisco Leonard, Jr. on March 7, 1948 and together they began farming. They were blessed with three daughters who survive them, Donna Leonard of Anderson, IN, Betty Jo (Arlen) Buck of Sheridan, IN, and Sara ((Jeff) Moore of Whitestown, IN. Additional survivors include grandchildren: Doug (Connie) Kolb of Sheridan, IN, Amy Theobald of Union City, TN and Aaron Buck of Fishers, IN, plus great-grandchildren: Jesse, Sam, Sophie, Marlee, Eli, Madie, and Jack.
Her parents and her husband preceded her in death.
Martha was a farm wife, in every sense of the word. She worked with her husband in getting the crops planted and taking care of their animals that included chickens, hogs and cattle. She loved working with most animals that also included their family dog. She planted and cared for flower beds and a bountiful garden. Her daughters attested that Martha was also a good cook and enjoyed having her family around her. Leisure time would find her watching college sports games with Purdue and I.U. being her favorites.
