After starting her career at the Times Picayune, Ms. Leininger headed the bookkeeping department at the Weiner Corporation over 30 years. A native New Orleanian, Yvonne was a founding member and officer of the Mardi Gras Krewe of Diana (Jefferson, La.). She had a deep love of ballroom dancing, which stayed with her into her later years, confirming to her loved ones that she was doing well by saying, “I’m still kicking, but not high.” Yvonne lived a life true to her faith over nine decades. A gracious woman who easily went without in order to do for others, she was a devoted parishioner of St. Christopher Parish (Jefferson, La.), a member of the Rosary Guild, Catholic Daughters of America and the Eucharistic Mission Guild. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Memorial Mass in the Chapel of L. A. Muhleisen & Son Funeral Home, 2607 Williams Blvd., Kenner on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. The Chapel doors will open at 10:30 a.m. Interment in St. Joseph Cemetery No. 2, New Orleans.
