Leora Edna Albers-Palessiro, age 80 of Rialto, California, passed away on August 23, 2017 after a brief illness. She was born to the late Theodore and Ada Belle Curtis on April 18, 1937 in Toledo, Iowa. After graduating from high school in Colfax, Iowa, Leora married John Albers on May 25, 1957, and they moved to Glendora, California. They ultimately made their home in La Verne, California where they raised their family. They were married for 35 years before John passed away in 1992. Leora eventually met Frank Palessiro, whom she married on December 11, 2001. They lived in Ontario, California, until Frank's passing in 2005.

Leora worked for many years as a data processor and in 2004, retired from San Antonio Regional Hospital in Upland, California after 25 years, working in the administrative/billing services field. After retirement, she continued to do what she loved, which was to volunteer at the hospital where she became the president of the Volunteer Auxiliary. Some of her other hobbies included crafting, embroidery, needlepoint, crocheting, and what was most dear to her, enjoying time spent with her family.

Leora is survived by her son and his wife, Albert and Judy Albers, daughter Brenda Porter, grandsons Christopher Albers, Jeffrey Albers, and Jacob Albers, granddaughter Amanda Porter-Salcido and great-grandson Matthew Salcido, and a number of other relatives and close friends.

Services will be held on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. in the west end chapel at Bellevue Memorial Park in Ontario, California. Arrangements were made by Stone Funeral Home in Upland, California. Memorial donations can be made in her name to the San Antonio Hospital Foundation.
