On Monday, January 8th our mother joined our father, James Francis Gavin, in eternal peace after a her 13 year battle with Alzheimer’s. Leone was preceded in death not only by her her husband but by her parents, Anton and Catherine Hettrich, and her nine siblings.
Leone was a loving wife and mother, whose life revolved around her family and faith in God. She is survived by her six children, Anne (Rod) Andrade, Cindy (Randy) Pond, Joan (Dennis) Bertuccelli, Dennis (Eva) Gavin, Brian Gavin and Jim (Lauren) Gavin. She was proud of and especially enjoyed being a grandmother to Peter, Matt, Meghan, Erin, Caitlin, Risa, Denise, Christina, Morgan, Abigail, Ryan, David, Maggie, John, Noel, Trent, and great grandmother to Gavin, Amelia, Ciana, Brayden, Kieran, Declan, Cormac, Maxson and Maya.
Our family would like to especially thank mom’s devoted caregivers, Koleti, Maki, Martha and Frieda.
