She resided at Caritas Community, the Villa at Florham Park and St. Joseph Healthcare and Rehab Center. Sister Leo loved children. She always focused on what was the best way to teach the children, what would make learning easier for them? This was evidenced in a manuscript that Sister Leo wrote, in 1971, A Study of Use of Library Books Versus Basal Readers. She was always ready for any situation along with a good laugh. Sister Leo was known to be an avid Yankee fan! She is survived by the Sisters of Charity, her sister Marie Voos, nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews and many friends.
