Leanne Alice Dell, 57, passed away at her beloved home from pancreatic cancer on December 8, 2021. Leanne was born June 5, 1964 and raised by adopted parents Henry Lee and Mary Kathleen (Harkin) Putney. She married Richard Lee Dell on April 17, 1986 and spent a total of 38 years together with the addition of two beautiful daughters.
When the family received Leanne’s diagnosis they did as much as possible. They were told that they did more in 12 months that some won’t do in 10 years. All of the family made sure Leanne lived the rest of her life to the fullest.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband Richard; daughters Katie (Brad) Bittner and Kellie (James) Montgomery; biological parents Sue and Jimmy; siblings Kelly, Dennis, and Lori; and grandchildren Noir, Faye, Kit, Oliver, Jackson, and Kassidy.
Leanne was preceded in death by her adopted parents Lee and Mary Kay; and brother Joe.
To the family and friends: We no longer have her physical body with us, but her spirit will be with us. Knowing how much she was loved by friends, family, and chosen family; Leanne will be forever missed and cherished in our hearts.
