Leone Monica Wittry was born November 12, 1923, near Coon Rapids, Iowa, to Jacob J. and Anna C. (Nieland) Wittry. She attended country school until the family moved to Breda. She then enrolled in St. Angela’s Academy and graduated three years later. On November 22, 1944, she was united in marriage to Leo F. Buelt at St. Bernard Catholic Church in Breda while Leo was on furlough from the US Army before going overseas. The couple was blessed with five children: Kay, Mary Jo, Rosie, Lee, and Bob. While her family was growing, Leone kept house, tended garden, preserved food for the family and spent many hours sewing clothes for her family. As the children grew up, she took a job as a poultry inspector and did other jobs in the Carroll area. She continued gardening well into her 80’s and used her sewing skills as a volunteer with RSVP, making quilts with the group. She also volunteered at the New Hope Village Store, winning the Governor’s Volunteerism Award with the group there. She was a member of St. Bernard Parish and the Christian Mother’s Sodality and the Breda American Legion Auxiliary. Leone is survived by her children, Kay Davis, Kent, Washington, Rosie and Andy Wiederin, Oro Valley, Arizona, and Bob and Joanie Buelt of Breda, Iowa; her sisters, Sister Pauline Wittry, FSPA, La Crosse, Wisconsin and Joan Hannasch, Rosemont, Minnesota; eleven grandchildren; thirteen great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, and many other family members and friends.
