Leone Marie Harant Cook

January 23, 1929 — March 31, 2024

In loving memory of Leone Marie Harant Cook

01/23/1929 – 03/31/2024

 

Leone was born in Black Eagle, Montana to John Frank Harant and Zora Taras. She was the 5th of 10 children. Leone spent much of her early life and formative years in Black Eagle, and it was here where she met the love of her life, DuWayne Cook. They were married October 4, 1947, and began a journey as husband and wife that would see them welcome four daughters; Carma Cook, Carol Ann Yamamoto (Sharm), Sherry Cox (Vance), and Susan, who passed away at an early age. Together they have eight grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, and six and a half great-great grandchildren. Leone is survived by her brother Chuck (Sylvia) Harant, sisters Dorothy Cook (Robert), Marilyn Wilson (Dee), Gail Zarr (Ron), and Alice Smock (Jim).

 

Throughout her life, Leone was involved in 4H where she had multiple accomplishments including winning first place on a dress she made. She loved to sew and was often seen working on various patterns and designs that she would give to others. One of her favorite activities was to spend time outside in her garden planting vegetables, taking care of her beautiful flowers, mowing her lawn, and watching jets as they flew across the sky above her house. Leone also loved to work in the community and held a job in banking for many years. She loved being around people and after retiring from banking, she continued to make her presence known in the community by working in the gift shop at Antelope Island and in the cafeteria for Davis County Schools. In her later years, her love for animals grew when she adopted a special dog named Nikkie, who ultimately became her life-long companion. Together the two of them would sit outside and bask in the warm sun, keep each other company during long walks around the neighborhood, and find joy in life’s simple pleasures. Like the colorful patterns on her sewing creations and her house on any holiday, Leone’s life of 95 years was full. She is preceded in death by her loving husband DuWayne, her daughters Carma and Susan, her granddaughter Kylie, Parents John and Zora Harant, her brothers Johnny, Billy, Bobby, and Jerry.

 

Our family would like to extend our heartfelt love and appreciation to her caregiver Linda and her hospice nurse Nicole. Thank you for taking care of Mom and loving her as your own. It is said that life is a journey, a journey filled with challenges, triumphs, laughs, and tears. There are few who live a journey as long and rich as our Leone. We love you and we will miss you dearly. Until we meet again.
