Sharon Lynn Leedy

BLUEFIELD, Va. — Sharon Lynn Leedy, 62 of Bluefield, VA, went home to be with her Lord on Monday, June 2, 2014 after a long courageous battle with cancer. Born in Bluefield, WV, she was the daughter of the late Estel and Hazel Pennington Herald.

She was a member of Midway United Methodist Church in Yards, VA and was a woman of strong faith. She had a humble spirit and was selfless and always uplifting. In her earlier years she liked to crochet and in the later years she enjoyed working crossword puzzles. She was a homemaker for the most of her life, but had spent the last 12 years working as secretary for WVVA.net wireless company. She loved her children and her grandchildren dearly.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Stephen Herald.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, George Leedy of Bluefield, Va.; her sons, Kevin Leedy and wife Kelly of Falls Mills, VA, Brian Leedy and wife Joanie of Bluefield, VA; grandchildren, Ethan, Morgan, Kyle and Gavan Leedy; several nieces and nephews and other special family and friends.

A service to celebrate Mrs. Leedy’s life will be held today, Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at 7:00 P.M. at Dudley Memorial Chapel  in Bluefield, VA with the Rev. Daniel Ingram and the Rev Raymond Klaiber officiating.  A private family burial will take place later. Pallbearers will be her beloved friends and co-workers at WVVA.net, Michael Clemons, Zack Saunders, Dustin Quesenberry, Justin Huskey, Ross Lang, Adam Blankenship, Adam French and Will Moses.

Friends may visit with the family today at the funeral home from 5:00 p.m. until hour of the service.

In lieu of flowers or other acts of kindness and sympathy, the family has requested that donations be made in Mrs. Leedy’s memory to the Bluefield Union Mission Food Pantry, Bluefield Avenue, Bluefield, WV 24701.
