  • Leah Lou Ella Hogan Jones, 79, died Monday, Aug. 20, 2012 at South Wind Hospice Home, Pratt. She was born in Carmen, Okla., Aug. 10, 1933, the daughter of Charles A. and Leah Vashti Phinney Hogan.
    She was a 1950 graduate of Ringwood High School, Ringwood, Okla., a 1954 graduate of Friends University, Wichita, a member of First United Methodist Church, Pratt and a chancel choir member, a member of ASCLS, Kansas Society of Clinical Lab Scientists and a past member of American Society of Microbiologists. She was a clinical laboratory scientist for over 30 years in Hutchinson, Great Bend and Pratt retiring in 1998. In 2001 was awarded the SWACM Distinguished Service Award. She was a member and librarian of American Sewing Guild. Leah had sung in the Friends University Singing Quakers.
    Beauty defined Leah. She loved music and song, loved clothes, designing them and then making them to the end, including her daughter's wedding gown, hand sewn, stitch by stitch in a farm home in Kansas. Nurturing her rose flower garden was a passion for her. Leah's flare for zestful living and expansive consciousness drew people to her. Her vibrancy was illumined in the many friendships she had. Leah had lived in Germany (with Loren), in Greicheim, Frankfurt Au Mein. In 1955 she traveled in Europe with her family. She also traveled to Ireland in 2005 with her grandchildren, fulfilling a lifelong dream, and later toured the British Isles with her sister Frances.
    On Jan. 12, 1954 she married Loren Eugene Jones in Ringwood, Okla. He died Feb. 4, 2003. She is survived by their children, Michael Eugene, Langdon, and Lauren Frances Jones and husband Mark Hornung, Skillman, N.J.; two grandsons, Christian Shiloh Augustus "Kit" Hornung, and Gareth Temple Fell Hornung, Skillman, N.J.; her sisters and brothers, Rita Ann Newman, Arlington, Texas, Patrick Charles Hogan, Wichita, Leland Michael Eugene Hogan, Cape Girardeau, Mo., and Frances Rachel Patricia Williams, Okmulgee, Okla.
    She was preceded in death by her parents and an infant sister, Peggy Jo Hogan.
