Leonore Cangiano Serven, 85, of Clermont, FL passed away on October 27, 2016 at Cranes View Lodge Assisted Living in Clermont. She was born in Plainsfield, New Jersey and came to this area from Orange Park, FL. Leonore is preceded in death by her husband, Woolsey Serven, and her parents, Salvatore and Louise Cangiano. She is survived by her son, Neal (Loni) Serven; two daughters, Lisa (Keith) Veres and Ginger (Jim) Hansen; three grandchildren and other extended family and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be made to the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation at 2445 Lane Park Road, Tavares, FL 32778. Cornerstone Hospice provided outstanding supplemental care to Leonore during this past year and were a great support to her and her family.

Leonore, or "Lee" as her husband Woolsey and close friends would call her, was a devoted wife and mother to her three children. She worked in New York City at one of the major Department Stores prior to her marriage and afterwards until she had her children. Raising her family and managing the Serven household were her passions. She took pride in her home and enjoyed going "antiquing" on the weekends with her husband. In 1966, Lee, Woolsey and the 3 children moved from Park Ridge, NJ to their new home in Woodstock, NY in the heart of the Catskills. They became very active in their local United Methodist Church and became active members of their Community. In 1975, Woolsey's law book publishing firm, relocated the family to Orange Park, FL. Here too, Lee and the family got involved in the community, became active in their local Methodist Church where Lee became the Chairman of the church's Alter Guild (a small group responsible for decorating the church's alter for each Sunday's service). Lee was a devoted housewife, a great cook and true "Super-Mom" shuffling kids to various clubs, practices and extracurricular activities.

It is these times that we will best remember Leonore, our Mom as they were filled with so many wonderful memories.
