Gloria Leasau Obituary

Gloria Jean Leasau, affectionately known as Nanny by those who knew her best, lived a life that was a testament to the power of love and selflessness. Born on February 15, 1945, in Cincinnati, Ohio, she brought light and warmth into the world, a light that continued to shine brightly until her peaceful passing on November 16, 2023, in Banning, California.

Nanny's journey was one of unwavering dedication to her family. She was the matriarch of a loving lineage that included her daughters, Vicky Haas and Rio Brown, her cherished grandchildren, Tasha Walden, Nicole WoolWeaver, Mark WoolWeaver, Kayla Leasau, Celina Guerrero, and her adored great-grandchildren, Zackary, Everly, Chloe, Christopher, and Skyler. Her family was her pride, her joy, and the very heart of her existence. Nanny's nurturing spirit extended far beyond the confines of her own kin, touching the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her.

A woman of wisdom and boundless love, Gloria's life was a canvas upon which she painted with the vibrant colors of kindness and care. She was a homemaker not just in title, but in essence; her home was a sanctuary where all were welcomed, nourished, and cherished. She lived by the principle that the greatest joy comes from giving of oneself to others, a belief she embodied every day of her life.

Gloria's interests were simple yet profound: her family was her world. She poured her energy into caring for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, imparting to them the values of compassion and resilience. In every hug, every meal prepared, and every word of advice, Nanny gave a piece of herself, shaping the lives of those she loved with gentle wisdom and unwavering support.

Her life was an illustration of the quote by Maya Angelou, "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Gloria Jean Leasau made everyone feel seen, heard, and valued. She was the embodiment of love in action, always putting others before herself, her selflessness a beacon for all who strive to make the world a kinder place.

To describe Gloria is to speak of love in its purest form. She was the epitome of what it means to be selfless, her every action motivated by the desire to uplift and support. She was loving, not just in word but in deed, her presence a comforting embrace in times of need. And she was wise, her insights and guidance echoing through the lives of those she touched like a gentle but powerful refrain.

In her life, Gloria modeled what it means to be a pillar of strength and a reservoir of love. She taught us that the true measure of a life well-lived is not in the wealth accumulated or the accolades received, but in the hearts touched and the lives bettered. Her legacy is not one of material possessions, but of the love she gave so freely and the family she nurtured with such devotion.

As we remember Gloria Jean Leasau, let us honor her memory by emulating her virtues. Let us be selfless in our giving, loving in our actions, and wise in our words. Let us cherish our families as she did, with every fiber of our being. And let us carry forward her spirit, ensuring that the love she shared continues to ripple through the world, touching lives and inspiring hearts for generations to come.

Gloria Jean Leasau's story is one of a life beautifully lived and a love unconditionally given. Her journey reminds us that we all have the capacity to make a difference, to be a light in the lives of others. As we bid farewell to a remarkable woman, let us remember that, in the words of Helen Keller, "What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Gloria, our beloved Nanny, will forever be a part of us.
