Obituary for Jeanette M. Leach

Jeanette M. Leach, 96, of Morton, passed away peacefully Saturday, March 6, 2021 surrounded by her family at her sons house a short time after suffering from a stroke.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband Gilbert; her mother and father Theresa and Ben Markoski; her brother Bern Markoski; daughter Terri Schneider; son-in-law Ray Hartwell and sister-in-law Boots Markoski.

Jeanette is survived by her children Connie Hartwell of Peoria, Gail (Ted) Mast of Wilsonville, Oregon and Gib (Deb) Leach of Pekin; 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren, as well as son-in-law Jay Schneider of Centenial, Colorado.

Jeanette lived a long happy fulfilling life. She was loved by all that knew her and the cornerstone of her family. She was a devoted wife to her loving husband Gilbert for 46 wonderful years and a stay-at-home mother to her four children. She was a devout catholic and raised her family with those same Catholic Christian values. Jeanette was a cup half full type of person. Very giving in nature and always there to lend an ear. She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren dearly just as they did her. She was always up on the latest world events. Anyone that knew Jeanette was especially aware that she was one of the biggest Cub fans to come along. We are all so thankful that she was a able to witness the Cubs winning the world series in 2016. We will all miss mom dearly but take some solace in the fact knowing that she is reunited with all her loved ones that have gone on before her.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 from 10:00 AM until time of Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 AM at Holy Family Catholic Church. Franciscan Friars will officiate, and burial will follow in Resurrection Cemetery.

Memorials in Jeanette’s memory may be made to St. Jude Midwest Affiliate.
