Leatrice M. Klager December 7, 1927 - January 12, 2022

Leatrice M. Klager, 94, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, formerly of Port Jefferson Station, NY, passed away peacefully Wednesday, January 12, 2022, in the home of her daughter, Lorilee and son-in-law, Richard in Allentown, PA. She was the wife of the late Gene Klager. Born in Brooklyn, NY, she was a daughter of the late Santi Carmelo and Angela (Guardacosta) Castagna.

Leatrice had served as a Cub Scout Den Mother for years, worked with mentally and physically challenged children, and was a parishioner at Infant Jesus Roman Catholic Church. She loved to paint, and her artwork was beautiful. She was an avid reader, and also enjoyed gardening, putting together puzzles, watching old movies, listening to music, shopping, and caring for her animals. However, her greatest joy came from spending time with her large, loving family. With her feisty little personality, she was their friend, confidant, and rock. She will forever be loved and missed.

Survivors: Children: Lorilee A. Lyons and her husband Richard M., Linda J. Mongiello and her husband Lorenzo, Cathy E. Grant and her husband Randy Ayers, Steven J. Lewis and his wife Nancy. Leatrice was predeceased by a son Gilbert A. Lewis, Jr. She had 15 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren, and two surviving sisters, Diana Restuccio and Flavia Enright.

Services: A funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph the Worker Roman Catholic Church, in Orefield, PA, at a later date. Arrangements are being made by Stephens Funeral Home, Inc. www.stephensfuneral.com.
