Booty was born on April 17, 1933 to Oscar and Melitta (Meyer) Leonhardt in Manitowoc, WI. Following school, she was employed by the DeCalb Seed Company and SEARS where she met the love of her life, Luther “Luke” Lageson or “Lue” as Booty would call him. The couple was united in marriage on May 23, 1953 in Shakopee, MN. Together, she and Luke raised six children. She is remembered as a “Super Mom”. Her children recall always having a hot, homemade meal ready for them, which was a difficult task with six kids all coming and going with busy school and sports schedules. Booty enjoyed life to the fullest. Holidays were important to Booty, especially Christmas and Halloween. She delighted in hosting Christmas for her family. Booty also enjoyed dancing, walking and having lunch with her friends, card club and their parties, and family road trips to visit relatives. Booty took pleasure in crocheting sweaters, hats, and baby blankets for all of her grandchildren. Booty’s greatest passion in life was her family. She will be dearly missed.
