Leah Lorenzo Tucker, 34, of Tallahassee went to heaven Tuesday morning, February 10, 2015.
Leah was born in Santa Maria, CA. on May 23, 1980 to Dario and Francisca Lorenzo. She graduated from Cypress Creek High School and received a degree in psychology from the University of Central Florida. She was married to Dan Tucker on December 5, 2004 who pastors Gracepointe Church in Tallahassee.
Leah worked for the State of Florida for many years before becoming a full time mom and pastor’s wife. She loved spending time with her husband, children, and close friends from her church. Leah was very passionate about sharing her story of how God had changed her life after surrendering her life to Jesus Christ.
She especially enjoyed teaching her children and spending time with her army of amazing moms from Classical Conversations, a.k.a. her other family. She was an avid reader and a kind hearted servant always looking for ways to minister to others.
She was survived by her children Elijah 8, Joshua 4, and Zivah 1 week. She is also survived by her amazing parents Dario and Francisca Lorenzo, two wonderful brothers Jayson and Rhyan and many cousins, aunts, and uncles and her loving grandmother Nemesia Ramelb.
A memorial service will be held in her honor at 11:00 Saturday, February 14th, at Seminole Baptist Church 3330 N. Mission Rd Tallahassee, FL. 32303.
Her family asks that you consider giving to The Leah Tucker Memorial Fund @ YouCaring.com or the Tallahassee Women’s Pregnancy Center.
