Leone Mae (Schumacher) Carlson passed into the Lord’s presence on November 15, 2020. Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established to Hilltop Equine Therapy, 9435 N. Meridian Rd., Ardmore, OK 73401. Online condolences may be made by visiting Leone’s memorial page at

Leone was born at home in Minatare, Nebraska on October 31, 1925, to Leo Mathias and Ebba (Olsen) Schumacher. She attended Lake Minatare Grade School and graduated for Minatare High School in 1942. She attended Scottsbluff Junior College and Black Hills State College where she became a teacher upon graduation. Leone team-taught school with her Mother at Lake Minatare. In 1947, Leone married Howard Corr of Melbeta. To this union five children were born, Cheryl Lee, Danial Craig, Vicki Jo, Thomas Lee and Paula Mae.

Because Howard was a cattle buyer and auctioneer, the Corr’s moved many times in the states of Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Colorado. Leone taught school in most of the places they lived. They divorced in 1973. Leone married Aldrew Carlson in 1985. She retired from teaching in 1992 and she and Al wintered in Weslaco, Texas every year for 16 years, where they had many friends, played cards, shuffleboard, and enjoyed retirement.

After Al’s passing in 2001, Leone kept busy in Weslaco and Scottsbluff playing cards several times a week, knitting, crocheting scrubbers, taking daily walks, and attending church. She was a lifetime member of the Ladies Auxiliary B.F.W. She loved spending time with family.

Survivors include her sons, Dan Corr of Ardmore, OK, and Tom (D’Ann) Corr of Gering; daughter, Paula (Terry) of Emmett, ID; 19 grandchildren; 53 great-grandchildren; and 10 great-great-grandchildren.

Preceding her in death where her parents; sister; brothers, Ron and Don; husbands, Howard and Aldrew; and daughters, Cheryl Hesse, and Vicki Chitka.

To the family of Leone: Leone is a very long time friend. She was two high school grades ahead of me. Many of us farm boys were shy, especially at the high school dances. Leone understood farm boys very well. Please accept my dearest condolence. Robert E. Jessup 3114 Gracefield Rd. Apt. WC210 Silver Spring, MD 209040

To the family of Leone,
I met your mother while she was in assisted living at Vista. She was next door to my mother. She was a sweet lady and loved to play bingo. Sometimes I assisted with activities for my mother and your mother was always eager to participate. She will be missed. Prayers and comfort to you all. Shirley Anderson

I got to know your mom well visiting my mom Hanna at the Vista. I enjoyed time talking with your mom and learning things from her. We enjoy time with bingo and crafts and I will never forget our Christmas party last year. We had such a good time with that. She was a very thoughtful and sharing person. I share in your grief and my thoughts and prayers are with you. Thank you for allowing me to know your mom
