      Leola Frances Walther was born in Clarks Fork, MO Nov. 22, 1925, the daughter of Clarence J. King and Emma J. Frieling King. She married Jacob E. Walther January 26, 1947 at the Clarks Fork Lutheran Church and they are the parents of six children. Leola was proud of all of her children and the way they responded to her example of hard work and love of people. She loved needle work and the fruits of her hobby are distributed around the state and beyond. She was an avid birdwatcher and she loved to garden, both vegetable and flower gardening and her passion for this was inherited by her children, who have won numerous awards at the Missouri State Fair, every year. She was an active member of the West Boonville Evangelical Church. Leola was also civic minded who was a board member of the Missouri Farm Bureau for many years and an officer for the Clear Springs Community Center.

      Mrs. Walther was preceded in death by one son, William Walther in 1976, by two sisters, Edna Schafersman and Dorothy Fredrich and by two brothers, Herbert and Earl King. She is survived by her husband of sixty four years, Jacob, her children, Ernie Walther and wife Sharon, Carl Walther and wife Joan and Joyce Gilson and her husband Steve, all of Boonville, Rosemary Wilmsmeyer and husband Larry, of Franklin, MO and Darlene Reuter and husband Earl of Versailles, MO. Sisters Marcella Garcia and husband Ernie of McAllen, TX and Margaret Creeman and husband Mel, of Kansas City, also survive. Leola left a big empty spot in the hearts and minds of her eleven grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren.

      Memorials are suggested to the West Boonville Evangelical Church.
