March 19, 1918 — October 24, 2019

Leone Maggie O’Donnell, 101, of Siloam Springs, passed away Thursday, October 24, 2019 at her home.

Leone was born on March 19, 1918 near Fayetteville, Arkansas, a daughter of John Francis Hulsizer and Nora Mary Elisabeth Oxford Hulsizer. She was the widow of the late Harry O’Donnell who preceded her in death in 1994.  Leone was a home maker who assisted Harry in the Gemologist business grading diamonds and other gems. She was a fantastic cook, famous for her Pecan Pie. She enjoyed crocheting, quilting, had a love for dogs and was known as an excellent marksman with her pistol, killing many rattlesnakes while living in Texas. Harry would always say that he made the living and Leone made life worth living.

She is survived by several nephews, nieces and other family members.
