Remembering Our Friend Leona Willis (1929 - 2017)
Our deepest sympathy and thoughts are with the Willis family in these difficult days.
For many of us, Leona was the true champion of the revival of the historic Grand Theatre into the contemporary arts center it is today. Her neverending energy to make the Grand rise again was inspiring and influential to many in our community. When challenges emerged, she always had the right words of encouragement and sweetest twinkle in her eyes. The impressions and wisdom she genererously shared makes us better to have called her a friend.
