Leeman, he preceded her in death on October 29, 2014.

In her younger days she worked as a switchboard operator, was a published poet, but most proud of being a fulltime homemaker and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and beloved friend to many. She was a faithful woman who loved the Lord and enjoyed reading her Bible every day.
