Leah was a perfectionist and had a knack for fine intricate work and picked up many hobbies that she dove into through her life, be it quilting, beading and other crafts. When she cooked it was flavorful and made with great care. Her love for animals was rivaled by her love for plants and gardening. Making things grow is what brought her the most joy and pride, which anyone who took in the sight of her yard and flowerbeds could tell.  She sought to be loved by everyone and took great care in how she was viewed by others in the community.
