To all of the family&s of Leeta,

I can not find the words to say how shocked I was to hear the news of Leeta&s passing. She was a great person and I am glad to say that I grew up while worked for her for many years. She is still a big part of who and what I am today.

I only wished that I could have attended the service at "The Debonair". I did see the newscast on TV18 and saw many faces and names that I remember from the past. There have been many times in the years gone by that I have thought of all of you, Leeta, Skeeter, Tootie, Nita, and Vela. You were all a big part of my family for so many years, and now a part of you is gone.

I could not hear the music in the background during Sunday&s service, but I can only hope that it was "WE ARE FAMILY, I&VE GOT ALL MY SISTERS WITH ME"!

Leeta is now up taking care of Mrs. G ! I know she missed her!
My thoughts are with all of you and your family&s.

God needed a GOOD Haircut!!

Love and miss all of you, Rita Wolff

To all,
I just read in the news that Leeta passed away. I would have been there Sunday if I had known. What an absolute pleasure it was to have worked with Leeta. Her encouragement that she gave me was one I will never forget. Everytime I put my lipstick on, I will always remember Leeta getting after us girls when our lipstick had worn off!! She was a "class act"! My 2 year experience with her...I will never ever forget. God bless to all of you.
Much love,
Susie Sigo

Dear Family and Friends:

Leeta will be saddly missed by her clientele,family, grandchildren,neices,nephews and sisters.
She was the most friendly lady that I have had the pleasure of meeting. She always had a smile even if she was hurting and that meant a lot too all.

She is now in GODS WORLD doing what she did the best
making people happy. There will be another BRIGHT STAR
shining in the sky forever. We will miss you.

Leeta was my hair stylist beginning in 1986, with the exception of the year of hair loss from cancer treatment. She was the best! I remember how kind she was when it came time to get rid of the wig and start working with my new, short growth. She was able to make me feel more human again. I am so sorry to know that she is gone. You (especially her sisters) have my deepest sympathy. Sincerely, Elaine Hubbell

The news of Leeta&s passing just broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes.

She was one of the kindest and most accomplished people I ever knew, I conisder knowing her to have been a great honor.

Leeta was the first "business-women" I ever knew (surrounded by them now) and always was a "leader" in so many ways. The Debonair was a great achievement for anyone to have accomplished and for me personnally a source of many great memories; running in to see my mother while she was in the chair chatting Leeta up, years of Leeta&s advice as I attempted to be as "in style" as possible, the hundreds of haircuts and all the laughs during each one, just stopping by to say "hello" when back in town. By walking into her business I benefited in many ways beyond the improvement of my appearance.

She was a classy lady and will be missed by many of us. She will also be welcomed by many as she moves on.

Our thoughts, prayers and love to your family.

Leeta and I met each other when I was working at WASK radio in Lafayette back in the 60s....the Debonair was one of he first "Beauty Shops" to cut men&s hair...quite a
shift from barber shop custom of that era. She was wonderful warm person and we remained friends for many years until I moved from Lafayette. I was honored to have participated in a some of her charity events and I know her family and friends will miss her. She was one of a kind.

Dear Ones...Richard, Tootie, Nita, Sketter, Vela,and all your families:
I cannot believe the news I received yesterday through a friend at home. Leeta can&t be gone! I just can&t believe it! I am in Florida for the winter months,and altho I knew Leeta had some serious health issues before I left Lafayette on Jan. 1st, I never could have imagined it would lead to her death. I was a client of Leeta&s for many years, and I am so sorry not to be in Lafayette to pay my respects. Leeta and I shared recipes and talked a lot about making pies and cooking. She was one of the hardest working women I knew.
I know how deeply you all will miss her strong presence in your lives, as will all of us who knew her. She bent over backwards to please all us women who wanted to look like Sophia Loren, and many times, came into the shop very early to meet "our schedules." We&ll be forever grateful for her kindness, and we&ll never forget her. I pray that time will help to heal a small portion of the deep hurt in your hearts today. My deepest sympathy. Shirley Stitz

My condolences to all of the relatives and co-workers of Leeta&s. She was definitely a dedicated hairstylist that loved her profession. She was a model for my mother (Leah Hurst) in many hairstyling contests in different states. She was beautiful, inside and out. I know how much you will all miss her. May she rest in peace.
