Leta went home to glory on July 12, 2019 at 5:00 am. Our loss is Heaven’s gain, and she just began her new life with no more pain.  But through it all, her faith never wavered; her love for family and friends was unconditional.  A mighty saint just entered Heaven’s gates.

The family will receive friends from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Orebank Central Baptist Church on Sunday, July 14, 2019. The funeral service will follow at 1:00 pm with Preacher Tim Risner and Preacher Wayne Baker officiating. Burial will follow in Snyders Memorial Gardens.
