Sept. 14, 1926—Sept. 17, 2017
E. Leola Piekarski, born September 14, 1926, to Eva and J. George Wright of Ogden, Utah, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017.
Leola retired after 30 years of nursing at Elko County General Hospital in Nevada. The latter part of her life was spent devoted to her family. She relocated to Boise, Idaho to be closer to her son John, daughter-in-law Paula and her first grandchild Scott. Four years later, her second grandchild Joanna was born, and she dedicated herself to love and care for the two of them. Frequent after school walks to Delsa’s ice cream parlor, teaching her son to drive, and an infamous vacation to Virginia City are just some of the fondest family memories. Leola won her race in life and is survived by her son John Piekarski, grandchildren J. Scott Piekarski and Joanna Schisel, and great-grandchildren J. Wyatt Piekarski and Evelyn Schisel.
