Leota May Anthes (Palmateer)

Leota May Anthes (Palmateer)
Leota M. Anthes, 98, of Charlotte, formerly of Cass City, died peacefully with her family by her side Saturday, July 1, 2017 in Eaton County Health and Rehabilitation Services. She was born December 17, 1918 at home in Novesta Township the second of five children born to Harvey and Vina (Spencer) Palmateer. She married Kenneth D. Anthes June 20, 1939 in Napoleon, OH. He died July 2, 1973.
Leota graduated from Cass City High School. She completed beauty school in Pontiac. Leota worked as a beautician for over 50 years, most of which was in Helen’s Beauty Shop on Main Street in Cass City. She was well over 80 when she finally put away her comb and scissors. Leota was an avid reader enjoying most anything in print, particularly Historical Romance and Michigan History. She looked forward to her Cass City Chronicle and Tuscola County Advertiser each week. She enjoyed working Sudoku puzzles and Crossword puzzles. Leota always had a garden and loved tending her flowers and vegetables. She was a charter member of Cass City Business and Professional Women, awarded Woman of the Year in 1990. She was also a member of the Cass City Women’s Club, Hills and Dales Hospital Auxiliary and Cass City Historical Society. Leota enjoyed a simple life, she did not fluster easily even if life threw her a curve ball. She was strong and steady and looked forward rather than dwelling on the past. She enjoyed many vacations with her family and always loved her cat, Sammy.
Leota is survived by her daughter, Dorothy Anthes-Moore of Charlotte; grandchildren: Michelle (Shawn) Hubbard of Charlotte, Steven Steigman of Ohio, April (Bruce) Welton of Grand Ledge, Clark (Tamara) Moore; great grandchildren: Tyler, Trent, William, Grace, Hope, Blair, Kara, Gabriel; brother, Carl (Joyce) Palmateer of Cass City; several nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her son-in-law, Stanton Moore; sisters: Mabel Francis, Alma Darbee, Marion Frederick.
