LeAnna was a Christian and had been raised in the Catholic faith as a young girl. During her working years she was employed as a Certified Medical Assistant for Independent Home Health Care for about twelve years. She loved the outdoors and horseback riding and gardening were favorite pastimes of hers. She especially loved her pet cat, Nosey, and her pet dog, Sheba. She was also interested and adept at calligraphy. What meant most to her was time spent with her family. Her children and grandchildren held a very special place in her heart, as she did in theirs. The love they shared and many precious memories they created will forever live in their hearts.
A kind and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great-aunt, cousin and treasured friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
