Geraldine "Jerri" Leasure, 77, of Senecaville, Ohio, passed away Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 at the Genesis Good Samaritan Hospital in Zanesville, Ohio. She was born Aug. 22, 1937 in Washington County, Ohio, a daughter of the late Lester and Irene Siley Marshall.
Jerri retired from the former DANA Corporation plant in Caldwell. For many years she enjoyed camping and boating on Seneca Lake. She could often be found spending many good times with her cousins. She was an animal lover and her dogs meant the world to her. But none of that stacked up to the joy she found in spending time with her grandchildren, especially her great-grandchildren.
Those left to cherish her memory are: Husband Argyll Leasure, whom she married July 28, 1990; two daughters Kris (Alan) Wigant of Sumter, S.C. and Kathy (Sam) Schafer of Sarahsville, Ohio; step-son Bryan (Teresa) Leasure of Carlisle, Ohio; Grandchildren Tori (Stephen) Thompson, Tyler (Kenzi) Schafer, Danny (Kerry) Wigant, Toni (Andy) Wigant and Nick Wigant; step-grandchildren Ryan (Sonya) Leasure and Janis Leasure; great-grandchildren Lyla Thompson, Karis Thompson, Emry Schafer and Nora Wigant and step-great-grandchildren Rylan, Lucas and Kylee.
