Geneva J. Bleacher, 92, of Manor Twp., passed away peacefully on December 27, 2018 at Kadima Rehabilitation & Nursing at Lititz. Born in Lancaster, she was one of thirteen children born to the late Aldus L. and Leota (Coble) Kreider. Geneva was the beloved wife of the late John M.

Leonards, Jr., and Genevie Longenecker and her husband Dylan, with whom she resided; four sisters, Viola Herr (Clifford), Patricia Rhoads (Sonny), Frances Gamber (Jack) and Earla Deiter (Ronnie); and two brothers, Glenn Kreider (Esther) and Mervin Kreider (Janet). In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her son-in-law, Jaz Leonards; her grandson, Chris Leonards; sisters, Janet Wissler, Edith Miller and Rosalie Smith; and brothers, Aldus P. Kreider, Preston Kreider and Nelson Kreider.
