October 25, 1933 – March 25, 2021
Leann Greeley passed into Eternal Life on March 25th, 2021. She was born October 25th, 1933, to Charles and Myra (McPherson) Inskeep in Sailor Springs, Illinois.
Leann graduated from Mt. Vernon High School in Illinois in 1952. She would marry her first husband Maxie Smith in 1953. The pair would share many adventures through four different states before settling in Oklahoma in 1966. The pair would separate in 1967. Leann would meet her second husband James L. Greeley and marry him on November 10th, 1968. They would share nearly 45 years of marriage, separated only by his passing in 2013.
Leann would work for the United States Postal Service as an administrator from 1968 to 1992. She would attend Forest Hill Church and later Cherokee Hills Church. Leann enjoyed singing and would use her vocal talents to sing praise to His name as part of the Spiritful Voices Community Choir.
She was a woman of many talents, in addition to her love of singing she played piano. She was also a skilled seamstress, making many of her own clothes. A good day in her book involved finding a great deal at the thrift store before getting primped and pampered at the hair salon. Leann would cheer for the Oklahoma Thunder and OU.

What a great lady! I was so blessed to be a part of her family and have her in my life. She was so good to me. I loved her Christian spirit. You could feel it all around her.
My favorite memories of Leann always surround food. She always had to a little something sweet. Even if it was just a bite or two. She loved most anything chocolate. I knew if she wasn't feeling well, a little chocolate shake would usually help. (Ha Ha)
I also used to tease her about being the only woman over the age of 12 that was shorter than me.
I will miss her grace and her sweet voice, but I know that she is pain free and singing in the heavenly choir.
