Leota Faye Stokesberry
Born March 22, 1940 in Berry County Missouri, Died July 21, 2017, Nampa Idaho
Leota was born to Charles & Arvella Hilton. She was the oldest of 4 children - Charles, Harold & Carold.
They moved from Missouri when she was 3-4 years old. She went to school in Buhl Idaho until the 11th
grade. She quit attending school to help with the family when her dad got hurt in a farming accident.
She met Robert "Bob" Stokesberry thru her brothers. They dated awhile and were married on September
9th, 1960 in Buhl Idaho by the Justice of the Peace. At this time, she started working as a waitress at
Baties Cafe for $.75 an hour! She then got a job at Green Giant in Buhl working on the corn husker line.
She was pretty fast, as she got a bonus every night! During this time, she also worked for Easterday
Farms picking clods in the potatoes for a couple of seasons. She then gave birth to her first daughter
Pamela Kay. Later, she gave birth to her 2nd daughter Teresa Ann. Leota quit working & decided to stay
home with the girls. Bob and Lee then moved to Allen Noble Farms in 1969. So, in the following years,
she enjoyed fishing, camping, hunting, boating & being with her family. Being with her family made her
very happy. While in Nampa, she also worked for Allen Noble Farms on the potato harvester picking
clods & did this for 4-5 seasons.
She is preceded in death by her father, mother, her brothers Charles Hilton and Carold Hilton. She is
survived by her loving husband Bob of 56 years, her daughters Pam Myers (Dan); Terrie Moreno
(Jose); 4 grandchildren; 6 great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. The family would like to
express great gratitude to Terrie Moreno, Janie and Abby with Canyon Home Healthcare & Hospice.
