Obituary

Near the cross I watch and wait,
Hoping and trusting ever;
'Til I reach that golden strand,
It's just beyond the river.

The Family Tribute
Our Mother taught us everything…
except how to live without her.
Miss Betty Jean Leach, “aka” B.J., 74, of 301 Fern Hill Road, Troutman, was born in Catawba County, North Carolina on May 12, 1946. She was raised by Betty Louise Ramseur Leach and the late Paul William Leach. She departed this life on Sunday, May 24, 2020, at Iredell Memorial Hospital in Statesville, North Carolina following an extended illness.
She attended the Iredell Statesville Schools and was employed by Iredell Statesville Schools. She was employed by Cannon and Burlington Mills for many years until their closures. Betty Jean continued working at Lakeshore Elementary and Middle Schools as a cafeteria worker until she eventually retired.
She was a member of Joy Delight Commandment Keeping Church where she served as the President of the Usher Board and President of the Hospitality Committee. She was also a member of the Bells Crossroads Home Extension Club.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, Paul Edward Leach and Ricky Wrenn Leach.
She leaves to cherish the memory of her life, her mother, Mother Betty Louise Ramseur Leach; one son, John (Kellie) Leach of the home; two daughters, Dorothy Leach of Troutman and Angela Leach of Statesville; one grandchild, Mahalia Leach of Troutman; three sisters, Evangelist Clara Rucker and Bernice (Samuel) Sharpe, both of Troutman and Patricia Ellis of Statesville; one brother, Pastor Walter (Beverly) Leach of Troutman; and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins, other relatives and friends.

Cry for me just a little while,
Laugh smile and rejoice and
Remember the life we shared along the way.
I know in our hearts you will be missed.
Cry for me just a little while,
Laugh a lot, smile a lot
Rejoice forever!

John I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Sending my heartfelt condolences. May you find comfort knowing that our Heavenly Father cares for you and will comfort you during this time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4; 2Thessalonians 2:16,17) Ms. Betty Jean Leach will be missed by all. Jesus gave us a wonderful hope that we may see our loved ones again when he said at John 5:28,29 that there will be a resurrection. May we keep our eyes on the promises of our Heavenly Father who promised that one day no one will say I am sick, (Isaiah 33:24) and that all our pain, sorrow and even death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4) Many prayers are with the Leach family. May you have peace.
