Rebecca Catherine Leonard (Dorfmeier)

This obituary was written by my brother Jared:

Our sweet Rebecca passed away on Tuesday, September 29, 2009. She was born on November 13, 1978, here in Fresno, Ca.

Rebecca will always be remembered for her beautiful smile and her sweet nature. Becca had a great ability to always make people feel welcome and loved. It is her kind, warm, spritely spirit that gave her the ability to be a wonderful, wife, mother, granddaughter, daughter, sister and especially friend.

Becca had a great passion for education and her children. In 2003, she received her BA in psychology from California State University, Fresno. She graduated with honors and as secretary in her student organization. However, over the past seven years her true enjoyment has been in the raising of her three children with Jared, her husband of nine years.

Becca will certainly be called blessed by many generations to come. She was loved by all who knew her. May she rest in her Heavenly Father's care until she can be reunited with her husband and children. She is survived by her husband Jared; and their three children Elijah (age seven), and twin daughters, Rachel and Lauren (age four).

Visitation will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Peachwood Ward, Fresno North Stake Center, 220 N. Peach, Clovis, CA. 93612 on Monday, October 5, 2009, from 12:00 noon to 12:45 p.m

A Memorial Service will begin in the Chapel at 1:00 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Interment will follow at Clovis District Cemetery.
