  • Kathryn Reist Leonard, age 79, went home to be with Christ Jesus her Lord on June 15th, 2018 at her home in Glen Burnie, Maryland.

    The youngest of 5 children, she was born on August 9, 1938 in Chester, Pennsylvania to John Seth and Marion Miller Reist. The year after Kathryn graduated from Chester High School she married Jerry, whom she met at Wesley Grove Church Camp in New Jersey.  Kathryn deeply devoted herself in many facets of church life. Along with faithfully playing the organ and leading the choirs at the churches she attended, she worked as a bookkeeper, was a much-loved crossing guard and popular Avon lady. An avid duckpin bowler, she even made it onto the television game show, Bowling for Dollars. She was a tenderhearted dog lover – particularly poodles and Yorkies.


    Kathryn is survived by her beloved husband of almost 60 years, Jerry; sons, Irv (Kris), and Jay; daughter, Debbie (Jeff) Vogan; and 6 grandchildren, Elizabeth Leonard and Danielle Johnston; Jennifer (Taylor) Wilding; Robert, Kyle, and Benjamin Vogan; and brother, Irv Reist.
