Leone C. Knickerbocker, 96, of Annandale passed away on Friday, Oct. 11, 2013, at the Annandale Care Center.

Mass of Christian Burial was Monday, Oct. 14, at St. Luke's Catholic Church in Clearwater, with Reverend Steven Hoffman and Reverend Thomas Rayar officiating and burial at the parish cemetery.

Leone is survived by sister, Louise Young of White Bear; nieces, Susan (Ward) Whiting of Toledo, Ohio, Beverly (Thomas) Morganroth of Chippewa Falls, Wis., Diane Nendza of Golden Valley, Sharon Cripe of Duluth; nephew, Timothy Higgins of Maple Lake; great-nephews, Wayne, Edward, Ian, Dan, Steve, Joe, Peter, Robbie, Zachary, Andrew, Michael, David, Jason; and great-niece, Sarah.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bunny; parents; sisters, Martha Korsten and Mary (Higgins) Jude; nephews, Ron Korsten and Dick Wiegand; niece, Kathy; and great-niece, Michelle.

Leone was born on Nov. 15, 1916, in Lynden Township to Henry and Francis (Wilfhart) Helget. She was the eldest of four girls and was raised on the family farm. After graduation from Annandale High School she moved to Duluth until she married Henry "Bunny" Knickerbocker on Sept. 27, 1937, at St. Luke's Catholic Church in Clearwater. They were happily married for 63 years until Bunny's death on July 23, 2000. Together they farmed for 35 years on the Knickerbocker family farm. They sold the farm in 1972 and built a new home on a back pond of Clearwater Lake where they enjoyed watching geese and other water fowl. After retiring from farming, Leone worked as a waitress for Ellis Steak House in Annandale for 14 years. She was a member of St. Luke's Catholic Church. Leone and Bunny liked to travel and were able to visit exotic sights around the world. Leone was well-known for her wonderful cooking, entertaining skills and lemon meringue pie.
