Leanne loved to make beautiful crafts and gifts for family and friends. She believed in the power of prayer and the miracles that God provided. She was a prayer warrior and encourager for loved ones and strangers, alike. If you were lucky enough to meet Leanne it wasn't long until you would be her friend. Leanne lived her life for Jesus. She wanted everyone to know about her faith in God and what He did to save her. She spent her days sharing of the miracles in her life and how God’s love is available to all. "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened; do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9 Mom, go now and walk hand in hand with Jesus.

Services are in the care of Uecker-Witt Funeral Home, 524 North Park Avenue, Fond du Lac, WI, 54935. Additional information and guestbook can be found at
