It was in Reno where she met and shortly thereafter married the love of her life, William "Pete" Zamboni. They were able to celebrate 73 wonderful years of marriage. Pete and Leneva loved to square dance together and made many lasting friendships over their several years of dancing. She was truly a lovely lady.

Ten grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren as well as a few great- great-grandchildren also survive her. Sister-in-law Virginia McCold, and many nieces and nephews also survive her.
Her husband, William "Pete" Zamboni, grandson Christopher Zamboni and all her seven brothers and sisters predeceased Leneva.
