Leona enjoyed an outstanding career as a respected business woman in Parma as owner of Dwyer’s Baby Furnishings, later known as Baby Talk.  She is fondly remembered by many in Parma and surrounding communities as the wonderful lady who helped them get fitted for shoes, pick out first communion clothing, or get a school uniform.  Many also remembered her for the help she provided at that special time when they were going to become parents and needed to pick out furniture for their baby’s nursery. She was more than a respected business woman; she was a friend to many in the Parma community during the four decades she had that special store at the corner of Pearl and Ridge that she opened with her husband John in 1944.  She would always make you feel special and was truly a guiding light.
