She has four children, two sons, Buddy Loynd of Arlington TX., Terry Lee Leflar of Coppell, TX, and two daughters, Kelly Jo Leflar and Sammye Sue Leflar-Bohnstehn both of Roswell, NM.
Imo, as she was called by her family, or Jean, as she was known by her friends, was a wonderful wife, loving daughter, sister, aunt, and most of all mother and grandmother. Her most avid hobby was antique and treasure hunting which she called “going antiquing”. She collected all different kinds of treasures and became known for her beautiful home, as she had a god given talent for decorating. Through the years, she refinished her own antique furniture and decorated her beautiful home with many antiques and treasures. Friends and relatives began asking her to refinish their furniture as well as decorating their homes. Her home and treasures were her life’s passion next to her children and family.
She and her husband Welton, were married on March 31, 1946 and lived in Munday, TX. They raised their three children there. Welton was a farmer and she was a homemaker. They lived in the same house in Munday for 51 years until 2005, when they moved to Roswell, NM to be close to their daughters, Kelly and Sammye. She lost her beloved husband, Welton to cancer on April 23, 2008. She was also preceded in death by her parents, James C. and Sudie Dora Morton and all 15 brothers and sisters. She was the last living child of 16. She has 7 grandchildren, all boys as well as numerous nieces and nephews that loved and adored her!
Please join the family in a celebration of her life. Graveside services will be at 10 .m. on Saturday, September 26, 2009 in at Johnson Memorial Cemetery in Munday with a visitation 6-8 p.m. Friday evening, September 25, 2009 at McCauley-Smith Funeral Home, Munday.
Anyone who knew her will understand why God wanted her as an angel. She has forever left her mark in the lives of many and she will be so dearly missed on this earth, but has moved on to be with her parents, siblings and husband in a better place. She hurts no more.
