Obituary for Betty (Philpot) Leek


Betty (Philpot) Leek

Betty Philpot Leek, 57, went to be with Heavenly Father at 5:39 AM on June 12, 2013 at her Warsaw residence.

She was born on April 8, 1956, daughter of James and Mary Philpot who preceded her. On May 27, 1977 she married Joe Leek, who survives.

She was a long time employee of United Telephone Company and in later years was a consultant to JRZ Industries.

Betty was a quiet, unassuming lady of great character, strength and courage. She fought cancer for 13 years while maintaining dignity, grace and compassion for others.

She loved her family and friends and will be greatly missed by her husband Joe, son Ryan (and wife Lindsey), a grandson, Parker, and brother Jamie “Jim” Philpot (and fiancé Jodie Schelmadine).

Private services are planned. A special kindness or contribution to your local food pantry in her name would honor her memory.

McHatton-Sadler Funeral Chapel, Warsaw is in charge of arrangements.
