Leon Delpierre

Leon Delpierre was born on August 3, 1933 in Paris, France. A Holocaust Survivor, he moved to New York in 1947, then to Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1949. There, in 1956, he met and married his wife, Annette and they raised three children in the suburbs of Montreal.

A skilled linguist in French and English, Leon built a career in translation and simultaneous interpretation, establishing himself as a highly valued world-class interpreter. His assignments brought him to the far reaches of the world, from Paris to Hawaii, from Thailand to Australia. The highlight of Leon’s career was simultaneously interpreting the 1981 US Presidential Inaugural Address for Canada’s French radio service.

Although Leon talked for a living, his favorite time to talk was with family on long walks. He and Annette also enjoyed traveling extensively over the years to visit their lifelong friends. Laughter, playing “Petanque”, and partying with Leon’s powerhouse Sangria filled their time joyously.

Once retired, Leon was heavily involved with his community, serving on the Condominium Association Board over a span of years as Treasurer, then President. He also fulfilled his other passion for movie collecting , building an impressive library spanning decades of film history.

Leon is survived by his wife of 67 years, Annette; his 3 children, Serge, Isabelle (Rick), Bert and his 3 grandchildren- Rachel, Dylan (Julianne) and Nikolette.

Donations in Leon’s name can be made to:

Obituary

Mary Lee Jondahl

February 11, 2024 – February 22, 2024

JOHNSON CITY - Mary Lee Jondahl, 81, of Johnson City, Tennessee passed away surrounded by family on February 22, 2024.

She was born in 1943 to Anna Ruth (Bowser) and Albert Whitaker and grew up in a farmhouse in beautiful Greene County. As soon as she turned 18, Mary Lee moved to Washington D.C., where she met and married the love of her life, Lee. Excited to start their new life together, they packed up and traveled around the country and the world, raising their children in Maine, Puerto Rico, and Italy before returning to the US in 1976.

Mary Lee was known for her generosity and devotion to help others and could be found volunteering as a hostess at her beloved One Acre Cafe. She was very active in the Tree Streets community, serving as a coordinator for many of the neighborhood events over the years. Mary Lee was an avid gardener, voracious reader, and the children of the Tree Streets held a special place in her heart. She will be remembered for her kindness, authenticity, matter-of-fact wisdom, her famous front porch storytelling, and her unwavering spirit.

Mary Lee was preceded in death by her husband, Lee Jondahl, and is survived by her sister, Nancy Sue (Frankie), her children, Valorice, Lee Edward (Carolyn), and Esteban, her grandchildren, Jessica (Jack), Lindsay (Joey), and Shaun, and three great grandchildren, Olivia, Alex, and Max, extended family and friends, and her dog Gwendolyn Maude.

In lieu of flowers, Mary Lee's children request donations to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee (netfoodbank.org). The Jondahl family is planning a Celebration of Life and potluck for April 13, 2024 from 1:00 - 3:00PM at the former home of the One Acre Cafe (603 W Walnut St, Johnson City, TN 37604).
