Mrs. Leanna Marion Sheldon
December 4, 1981 ~ January 20, 2024 (age 42) 42 Years Old
Leanna Marion (Hollandsworth) Sheldon, 42, of Roanoke, VA, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, January 20, 2024. She is survived by her husband of 18 years, Jordan Sheldon and two children, Ella Sheldon (13) and Ethan Sheldon (10). She is also survived by her parents, David and Carole Hollandsworth, her sister Bethany Hollandsworth and niece Kohana, sister Rebecca Martens, her brother and sister-in-law, Joseph and Katie Hollandsworth and niece Charlotte and nephew Hudson, her mother-in-law, Kim Sheldon, brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Justin and Laura Sheldon and nephews Teddy, William and Charlie, and sister-in-law Gabriela Sheldon.
Leanna was born on December 4, 1981 in Roanoke, VA. She was the sparkle of our lives, always such a creative, happy and expressive little girl who was very artistic and loved to sing. She was a friend to all and loved serving others which led her to become a nurse after high school. She married Jordan, her childhood friend, in 2005. She always had a love for the Lord that only grew with time and was committed to instilling that love for God in her two children.
Leanna suffered from several chronic health issues over the past 20 years and was often in pain. She lived for the Lord even in her pain and would often encourage others in their own suffering. This past year was particularly hard on her physically and yet she would still point others to the Lord even in the midst of her own situation. Her life touched so many others and as devastating as this loss is to us all, we rejoice that she is now with her Lord, totally healed from the pain she had to endure on this earth. She wanted nothing more than to glorify God in her life and also in her death.
A Celebration of Life service for Leanna will be held on Saturday, February 10, 2024 at 1pm at Grace Church located at 2731 Edgewood St, Roanoke, VA 24015. The service will also be live-streamed at https://www.gcrva.org/livestream
