She spent time working as an Avon representative, selling products from farm to farm and throughout her community. Her employers included Berkley, Campbell Soup, and Univac from which she retired.
Together, Leanna and Dale settled and created a home in Lake Park which served as the epicenter for their family throughout the years. Their growing family would often meet at this home to celebrate holidays and enjoy suppers lovingly prepared with items from their own vast garden.
