Leonard Topness was born Sept. 10, 1909, in rural Whalan. On June 15, 1953, he married Viola Duff at the Highland Prairie Church parsonage in rural Peterson. They farmed in the Whalan area until 1988, and then lived in Rushford for four years before moving to Preston 11 years ago. Mr. Topness had lived at Preston Good Samaritan Center the past six months. His wife died Sept. 17, 1996.

A brother preceded him in death. The funeral for Mr. Topness was August 4, 2003 at Elstad Lutheran Church in rural Lanesboro, with the Rev. Wade Davick officiating. Burial was in the church cemetery.
