  • From all the Hagerty family in Oregon, condolences to LeRoy, Mary and all Lenora’s family. Lots of wonderful memories of visits to Lenora and Houston’s home Washington, where dear Lenora was always the “hostess with the mostest”. She was a generous, kind, cheerful lady who was the epitome of hospitality. She will not be forgotten!

  • My heart is full of love for my Aunt Lenora. She was a second mother to me, a sister to my mother, and filled my life with love and fun.Always a character, my family has fond memories of her and Uncle Houston, their hospitality, love, and welcoming spirit. My children adored her as did my husband Andy. To my Jackson family, Lee and Mary in particular, our parents are up in heaven enjoying each other and sending continued love our way. Our love to both of you always.

  • I am so very sorry to learn of Lenora’s passing. She was a truly exceptional person with a wonderful heart and personality. She was a very close friend to my mother and father, myself, my sister and our family. I will forever miss her laughter, her warm inviting spirit and her wonderful company. She raised a beautiful loving family and my deepest condolences to them. I feel blessed to have known her.
