MARIAN Z. LEAKE, Age 96 (March 24, 1924 – August 3, 2020) in Moon Township, PA. Beloved wife of the late Max W. Leake, Sr.
Marian will be lovingly remembered by her children, Darlene Ashley, Max Jr. (Kathy), and Lynne (Rich); grandchildren, Jonathan (Veronica) and Ben; and great-grandchildren Genevieve and Natalie, as well as numerous relatives and friends.
She is survived by her sister Anita McKain. She was preceded in death by her sister Victoria Schugg, and brother Sonny Muniz.
Marian was an inspiration to all, a force to be reckoned with, feisty, fun, a great-cook. She was a wonderful hostess to all the parties they threw, loved to play cards, and she absolutely loved to dance.
Through her many years, Marian had a wide range of jobs. She pumped gas, greased cars and changed tires for Gulf Oil. She was a certified welder during WWII for the LST’s at American Bridge Company. She was a bartender, then waitressing at some of Pittsburgh’s best restaurants and hotels. But the job she was best at was being a Mom!
At Marian’s’ request, no service will be held. She will have a private burial at Jefferson Memorial Cemetery.
If you would like to honor Marian in some way, she would have appreciated a donation being made to either Animal Friends or St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
