Layna Emmalee Sullivan was born September 12, 1951 in International Falls, Minnesota to Donald and Helen (Oien) Sullivan. Layna grew up in International Falls, where she graduated high school. On January 19, 1974, she was united in marriage to Gene H. Liebhard in Minneapolis. They made their home in Minneapolis for a short time before moving to Belle Plaine. They then built a home in Buffalo in 1979. They co-owned and operated Summit Precision in Buffalo, until Gene's death in 2007, when Layna also retired. Layna continued to make her home in Buffalo until 2017 when she built a home in Maple Lake to be closer to her children. Layna had a knack for interior decorating. It was not unusual for jewelry that sparkled and had bling to catch her eye. Layna enjoyed gardening and she had a soft spot in her heart for dogs. She cherished family time, and always made family birthdays and holidays worth celebrating.

Layna is survived by her children, Jerry (Kindra) Liebhard of Annandale and Sheri (Cody) Jarman of Maple Lake; six adoring grandchildren, Anna, Jake, and Reece Liebhard, and Kiera, Blake, and Isaak Jarman; siblings, Patricia Larson, Gary (Barb) Sullivan, Wayne "Wink" (Jeanie) Sullivan, and Rick (Laurie) Sullivan, all of International Falls; and nieces, nephews, other family members and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Don and Helen; husband, Gene; and brothers-in-law, Bob Larson and Jack Seaver.

The casket bearers will be Blake and Isaak Jarman, Jake Liebhard, and Wayne, Gary, and Rick Sullivan. Anne Pribyl and Krista Elsenpeter will the provide music for the service. Arrangements entrusted to Dingmann Funeral Care Burial and Cremation Services of Maple Lake.
