Leah’s biggest joy was her family.  She was an adoring mother and was always present for her children and husband.  She spent time making memories with them that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

Even though Leah was a very strong woman, her tender and kind heart was an example to those closest to her, and a benefit to all who knew her.  She will be deeply missed and is dearly loved by her family and friends. Her legacy will live on in them.
