i am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. She was my Girl Scout leader in the 70’s and remember her as a knowledgeable woman who offered us a chance to see the world. I visited Boston and Time Square under her troop. May God bless you in your time of grief.

so sorry for the loss of this special lady. She was an amazing role model for many young girls in the Octorara Area as Girl Scout leader. Troop 1129, I believe it was. I’ve often looked back on those years and fondly remembered Mrs Leike and the special times she created for so many of us.
