Leanne was the sweetest little girl growing up. She was so smart and pretty. We were adopted by the Childs 1 year apart.. Im glad she was happy. We used to play with our basset hound Earnie and weenie dog Heidi for hours. GOD received a beautiful angel when he called her home. I love you Leanne 💖

Frances and I send our prayers for the repose of Leanne and for her loving family. She served for many years as my secretary while I was Retor of St.James the Fisherman. Sshe was a dedicated and faithful servant of our Lord. She was a good Christian person and that says it all. Dick Warner

Leanne was a spiritual rock for me during my wife’s sickness and death. Such a strong Christian woman who loved the Lord, her family and friends. The last time we talked was at her dad’s house. Stopped by Jumping Java to pick up coffee which we enjoyed as we talked. It was an uplifting, spiritual time together.
Leanne has received her ultimate reward being with God for eternity. We will see her again in Heaven.
My love and prayers go out to Rocky and the family.

I first met Leanne at Calvary Baptist church. We were in choir together. It was a joy to get to know her and sing with her. She was so kind and caring. I will never forget the day we were sitting next to each other in the choir loft and I got really emotional about something in the sermon and she sensed something was going on and asked me about it and let me pour my heart out to her. Right then and there after the service she prayed for me and it ministered to me so much. She always asked how I was doing and genuinely cared. As she was battling the cancer most recently, we got to chatting on Facebook several times and I just wasn't always sure what would be the most encouraging thing to say, yet she always seemed to stay so positive even in the midst of her own questions. I feel sure they are being answered now. Our last conversation was about 3 weeks before she passed away. She said "I'll be waiting at the gate for you." She knew where she was going and she always wanted others to find the Lord. I will always miss that about her. She was a very dear friend and I will miss her presence on Facebook very much. My love, thoughts and prayers are with her family now. Sending lots of hugs during this time of sorrow.

I remember the first time I met Leanne. I felt like I had known her all my life. She was genuine and caring and had a way of putting you at ease. It may sound cliche, but she really did make you feel better for knowing her! When she became secretary at Mt. Pisgah, we would sit and fold bulletins together and she never missed an opportunity to share her love for Mr. Rocky and her boy's. I will always cherish our talks, tears & especially the laughter. Our prayer's go with you, for we know it has to be difficult to say good-bye to such a cherished sweet-heart. See you in Heaven my Sister in Christ.

Leanne you always made me feel loved. Even when I didn’t think I was worthy of love you embraced me and made me see that I was. You are one of the sweetest spirits Ive known. When I was in high school I loved spending the afternoons with you at church. I was too scared to stay at home by myself, I always thought my house was creepy, so you kept me company until my mom came home. You sat and listened to me practice my music for Sunday, as you made the church bulletins. You encouraged me when I needed it the most and loved me when I couldn’t find it within me to love myself. You will be forever missed. You fought a heroic battle. You fought it with courage and you always put your faith in the Lord, he always knew best. You were an exemplary example of a Christian, a mother, a woman, and a friend and I will forever try to model your image the rest of my life. I’m so glad I was able to spend the time with you that I did and I was lucky to have known you. Rest In Peace my beautiful friend. I know you are rejoicing, singing Hallelujah, on the other side. I look forward to singing with you again on those streets of glory. God bless you, Rest In Peace.
