Patricia Jean Leonard, 73, of Davenport died Friday December 18, 2020 at her home, surrounded by her family.
Patricia was born on February 21, 1947 in Davenport Iowa to Norma Anderson. She was a caretaker and worked in retail.
She married Louis Leonard in 1976 they raised three sons Terry, Torrey and Jesse; four daughters Tammy, Lulu, Bobbi and Angel.
She could be found playing bingo, or late-night casino runs with her family. With her big heart, she could never say “no” to anyone asking for favors, therefore she ran late and was darn proud because she knew everyone she helped along the way. She loved her family dearly and rarely missed an event for her children, grandchildren, or great grandchildren. She loved organizing family gatherings and Holidays with family were always her favorite. She especially enjoyed Christmas Eve with food, good company and a special visit from Santa Claus. She was very witty and would catch you off guard many times, her laugh and smile were infectious. Her kind and compassionate spirit will live on through the legacy that she has built.
Patricia is preceded in death by her mother Norma Anderson; daughter Bobbi Leonard; sisters Joyce McNeil and Sandra Sird Ybarra; brothers Johnny Anderson and Donald Sird.
She is survived by her husband Louis (Louie) Leonard of Donahue; six children Terry (Judy) Minney of Davenport, Tammy (Rick) Allen of Donahue, Torrey Minney of Davenport, Lucretia Minney of Davenport, Jesse (Tanna) Leonard of Buffalo, Angel Leonard (Jamie Brooks) of Buffalo; 26 Grandchildren; 28 Great Grandchildren; brothers Robert Russell and Ronald (Gayla) Anderson; sisters Debbie Anderson and JoAnn Sird; a number of Cousins, Nephews and Nieces; special fur baby friend, McDudley.
A private ceremony has been hosted by the immediate family and a celebration of life will be held at a later date.
