Millicent A. Leder, our beautiful, loving mother has finally joined dad in eternal life. Millie was born September 17th, 1952 in Colón Panamá. She married Jerry Leder, the love of her life, three times. He preceded her in death in 2016, and she missed him all the days in between.
Mom was a fun and adventurous woman in her youth. Raised by her grandmother, she had many friends and loved to go dancing. After she met Jerry, they traveled the world and moved from place to place due to his Military Career, which allowed her to stay home and care for her family. Later in life, she doted on her grandchildren, putzed around in the yard, and listened to Spanish music as loud as she could. She enjoyed spending time with her family and could always be counted on to watch a grandchild or three at any time.
Millie is survived by her loving children, Karen Bocanegra (Josh Owsley) Citrus Springs, FL; Ivan Pardo, (Panamá); Stephany (Brian) Kita, Weston WI; and Kevin (Alexis) Leder, Mosinee WI, and step-sons, Ryan (Misty) Kline, New Lisbon WI; and Randy Leder (Mosinee, WI); grandchildren, Ashley & Bryton Kline, Gabriel Smiley, Dominic Barnes, and Myles Owsley; Amadeus Pardo; Marissa Kita; and Cale, Paige, Adrianna, James and Kyline Leder. She is further survived by her mother Elizabeth Morales (Colón, Panamá); Sisters Arline Rushing (Panamá City, Panamá), Betzabeth Brooks, Jeannette Rushing, (all Colón, Panamá), Nazareth Faleri, (Port Ritchie FL); Sandra McDaniel, (Long Island, NY); brothers Wayne Rushing, Roger Rushing, & Mark Anthony Rushing, (all Colón, Panamá), and Martín Morales, (New Jersey).
