Leah married Walter S. Misiolek, Sr. on June 10, 1944. The couple raised two children, Walter Jr. and Carol. She and her family enjoyed outdoor activities when her children were young, including boating, camping and traveling across the country from Maine to California.
After retiring from Packard Electric, Leah enjoyed visiting with friends she had met there, spending time with neighbors past and present, and real and “adopted” family members, especially her grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Leah is survived by her son Walter and his wife Beverly Thorn of Tuscaloosa, her son-in-law Larry Plant of Warren, six grandchildren and six great grandchildren. She is also survived by two sisters Emily Magusiak of Georgia and Virginia “Waldz” Makosky of Warren and brother Frank J. Bielecki, Sr.
Besides her parents, Leah was preceded in death by her husband of 26 years Walter, who preceded her in death on January 14, 1970; her daughter Carol Plant and a brother Edward Bielecki.
