CHAMPION, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Sherry L. Noble Leasure, 64, of Champion, formerly of Bristolville, died early Sunday morning, August 8, surrounded by her loving family, at her residence.
She was born February 2, 1957 in Warren, a daughter of Conrad Noble and Eleanor (Hart) Noble Anderson.
Sherry was a 1975 graduate of Bristol High School. She then went on to attend Kent State University where she achieved a Master’s Degree in Education.
She worked as an insurance agent and she and her husband have owned and operated the Noble Reynolds Insurance Agency in Bristolville since 1987.
Sherry married Ernest R. “Pete” Leasure, Jr. on September 11, 1976. They shared almost 45 years of marriage and many happy memories together. He survives her.
She was a member of the Wildare United Methodist Church in Cortland.
She enjoyed camping, cross stitching, reading and singing. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and especially watching her grandchildren’s sporting events. Sherry was a devoted, loving wife, mother and grandmother. She will be sadly missed by those who knew and loved her.
Sherry strived to live her life glorifying God and to show Christ’s love through her example, kindness and quiet generosity. Her hope was that the love she showed brought others to know the love that Christ Jesus has for us all.
