Mrs. Leona Jeannette "Lee" Skoniecki Janashek, 86, of Rockville, and formerly a resident of Weeki Wachi Spring, Florida, died Sunday morning, August 27, 2017, at Collingswood Nursing Home, Rockville.

She and Jim moved to Florida, where they traveled, volunteered and, as always, sang in the church choir.
Lee never forgot that she was always God's hands. Her faith shone through for all to see.
