Bev was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.
Along with her parents, Bev was preceded in death by her loving husband of 66 years Ralph L. Leo and sister Janet Moser. She is survived by her son Eric Leo of Columbus, Ohio; her daughter Desiree Leo-Wilson (Bob) of Klamath Falls, Oregon; and grandchildren Jack Wilson and Angie Wilson both of Oregon.
