Learleen was a faithful member of the Enola church of Christ. She instilled in her family the importance of living their lives for Christ. Learleen loved helping others and always gave of herself first. No one stopped at her house without leaving with a full stomach or food to take home. She graduated from Mount Vernon High School and was a life-long resident of the community. She developed a love of sports as a young girl and played basketball for the Mt. Vernon Blue Jays. Her love of sports continued throughout her life and there was not one sporting event of her children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren that she was not there supporting them as their biggest fan. She worked in the insurance business for 50 plus years and continued working until the time of her death. Learleen loved spending time outside with her flowers and working in her garden. She was the happiest when her family was together, especially each Sunday when they joined her at her home for a lunch that she prepared. Learleen leaves behind a legacy of Christian love and faith that will live on in the lives of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
