Barbra Lee Leonardi (nee Briedwell).
Loving wife of Charles Anthony Leonardi. Devoted mother of Lisa (Chuck), Laura (Mike), Charles Jr., (Susan), Steven (Tiffany), and Candace (John). Cherished grandmother of Teala (Joe), Tasha, Michael, Charlie and Lorenzo. Dearest daughter of Rodney & Eileen Briedwell (both deceased). Loving sister of Sharon DePasquale and wonderful aunt to many.
Barbra passed away Tuesday, January 19, 2016 after her battle with cancer. Barbra graduated from Brush High school. She loved being a homemaker and taking care of her family. She had amazing culinary skills, loved to garden, and would share her bounty with family and friends. Barbra had a joy of sewing and needlepoint and if she didn't have a book in her hand she was listening to one on tape.
Barbra loved to travel and she enjoyed many adventures with her family and friends. She was and remained until her death a devoted and spiritual person and built and shared her strong foundation with others. She was an active and devoted Jehovah's Witness, constantly preaching the good news of the Kingdom in Jesus example. Barbra although ill, never wavered from her devotion and believed that one day she would join countless others in a paradise free from sickness and death.
As we mourn the loss of Barbra we are joyful that she shared her life with us and looked to the future of seeing us again. Barbra and the family would appreciate in lieu of flowers that you make a donation to "The Worldwide Work of Jehovah's Witnesses," 1075 Richmond Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44124 – or visit https://www.jw.org/apps/E_QBrNGR to make a donation.
A celebration of Barbra's life will be held at a time and date TBA at a later time.
