Leona Ann Pollock Ernest was born on November 27, 1926 in Shiner, Texas. She passed away on April 1, 2015 in Houston. Leona, lovingly known as Mom, Aunt Leona or Lonie and Grammie, was devoted to her family and loved nothing more than spending time with them. She and her husband, Edward, owned and operated Ernest Garage and Auto Sales for 50 plus years. Throughout their career together they also took on trailer sales and service as well as the first chain of Ryder trucks in the area. Leona was a strong business woman and drove herself to work every day well into her eighties. She enjoyed having her family over for Sunday dinners and especially liked baking items and keeping up her Czech heritage. She doted over her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who were all the apples of her eye. She loved company to come over and would drop everything to visit. Leona will be sorrowfully missed by all who knew her. The family would like to thank everyone who had a hand in helping care for her the past few years.
