Jalene Lee Leazer, 99, of Gonzales, passed away Tuesday, Feb. 20. Jalene was born Jan. 30, 1919 In Gonzales County to James and Drew Ella Bowers Nethery. She married Dan Donivel Leazer on May 13, 1938 in Gonzales.
Jalene was raised in Gonzales and moved with her husband to Harris County in the 1940’s shortly after marrying. She was a homemaker and a good homemaker who took great care of her home, children and husband. As a loving mother she would do anything for her children. She was not only their source of unconditional love, but their greatest source of encouragement. Every Friday she prepared homemade fried chicken for supper, the kind of fried chicken that tasted just as good as cold leftovers as it did fresh out of the frying pan. Thanksgiving was a huge event in her home and every year she needed to buy more and larger serving trays for all the food she would prepare and serve. Jalene was a tender-hearted grandma and loved to crochet afghans, baby blankets and booties for her infant grandchildren. Her legacy is a legacy of love.
Jalene is survived by her loving family, daughter, Mozelle Boyd of Gonzales, sons and daughters-in-law, Wayne Leazer of Gonzales, Paul and Carolyn Leazer of Gonzales, Darrell and Cindy Leazer of Gonzales, daughter-in-law, Doris Leazer of Gonzales, 11 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents and sons, Daniel V. Leazer and Garry Leazer.
