Patricia Joyce McLelland Leonard
She was born on April 26, 1963 in Davie County to the late Patrick Clyde and Joyce Jeanette Durham Rogers. She lived life with passion and conviction. Her greatest loves were music, laughter, the company of close friends and most of all, family. She was happiest when all of those came together. She never met a stranger and all who met her likely never forgot her. She worked hard and loved harder. Her genuine spirit is one that will live on.
Survivors: her husband of 35 years, Tony Leonard of the home; a son, Terry Leonard (Jennifer) of Cooleemee; a grandson, Camden William Leonard; 2 brothers, Wayne McLelland (Angela) of Lexington and Rusty McLelland of Mocksville; her stepmother, Kathy Rogers; and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be conducted at 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26, at Crosslife Church in Mocksville. The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m. at the church.
