Leesburg

Jane Leigh, age 85 of Leesburg and a longtime resident of Kosciusko County, passed away at Lutheran Kosciusko Hospital on Wednesday, March 15, 2023 at 3:28 p.m.
 
Born in Dudley, Mass on October 20, 1937, Jane was the daughter of Willam Gevry and Barbara (Hoye) Gevry. She attended school at Bartlett Junior, Senior High School and spent much of her early life in Massachusetts. On March 2, 1957, Jane was married to Francis Robert Leigh; the pair shared more than 35 years together before his passing. Their children fondly remember nearly weekly trips to the local amusement park and camping with mom and dad.
 
Jane was a natural caregiver and worked as a CNA for several years. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother who would do anything for her family. She was a true 'mama bear.' She liked bowling, winning several city leagues with her family as her teammates. She also liked trying her luck at the casino and country music. More than anything, she loved time spent with her children and grandchildren.
 
Those who survive with memories to treasure include four children: Kevin (Deborah) Leigh of Atwood, Roxanne Leaming of Leesburg, Keith Leigh of Leesburg and Roberta (Adam) Kline of Columbia City ; 10 grandchildren: Cathline (Chris) Hufault of Dixon, MO, James (Amanda) Leaming of Holland, MA, Kristina (Daniel) White of North Webster, Sara (Dustin) Wheaton of Nashua, NH, Joshua Leaming of Warsaw, Cody (Brianna) Stuckman of North Webster, Kevin Stuckman of Warsaw, Logan Kline of Wolf Lake, Claudia (Bryce) Taylor of Columbia City and Mackenzie Kline of North Webster; 23 great-grandchildren and brother, Howard (Judy) Gevry of Webster, MA. In addition to her husband, Jane was preceded in passing by her parents; daughter, Karen Leigh; son-in-law, James Leaming; six siblings and a great-grandchild.
