They rented a farm by Moffit for two years before moving to the Roemmich Family Farm in the fall of 1958, where they raise their family: Linda, Laura, Lana and Leonard Jay.

Leona was busy on the farm: milking cows, raising stock cows, hogs, sheep, chickens and helping in the field. She provided her family with delicious food, sewing clothes, support, comfort, LOVE and as a prayer warrior. She never missed an opportunity to play dice or pinochle.

Living in Bismarck after selling the farm in 1985, she worked at Missouri Slope Nursing home as a seamstress; returning to live in Steele in 1994.
