Sertoman of the Year 2023
“Sertoman of the Year 2023”, Theresa Leone, was born at St. Joseph Hospital, five years after her sisters. Her two children and her sisters four children, also were born at the same hospital. She went to Glendale grade school and had a teacher for three years who gave her a great start on her education. In 6th grade she was teacher’s pet, as her sister had the same teacher and said “ I hate you, I hate you. The teacher handled it on his own and we did not hear about it.
She attended Toll Junior High and Hoover High. She has a AA and was close to a BS. She worked at Grand Central Bowling Alley in the cafeteria at age 14. When she turned 16 she was made manager. This is where she found her husband, Bruce. She worked for Dr. Pitts and was his veterinary tech. She also worked for a mobile vet where she worked on white tigers that had a fungus on their feet.
We set her up in a Limo Company that did good until 911 ~ after that, we lost it. After that, she worked at the Home Depot and took care of her mother-in-law. She is now taking care of me and doing a good job of spoiling me. IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE that I present this award to Theresa Leone. – Bev Brownfield
A little note of information from Jan Clark:
The beautiful photo of Theresa that included her mom, Beverly Brownfield, was taken by Sertoma President, April Rock but I felt that I needed and wanted to share the fact that her dad, Dick Brownfield, also received the “Sertoman of the Year” award in 1999 and her mom, Beverly, received the same in 2006. Theresa joined our organization, not just to keep busy and donate her extra time to be “of service” to mankind, but primarily to honor her parents. Well, she certainly has been an inspiration to all she surrounds ~~~ especially to Leona Valley Sertoma. Thank you for being a special shining star within our group and know that YOU ARE SO APPRECIATED.
