Leake, Tiana L.

January 18, 1961 - June 13, 2014

Tiana Lynn Leake, 53 joined family and friends in heaven and is now at peace and in God’s loving hands.

Tiana was born January 18, 1961 in Hawthorne CA to Kenneth Joseph Leake and Doris Marie (Brydon) Leake.

Tiana spent her childhood growing up in Costa Mesa, CA.  She attended and graduated from St. Joachim School in 1976 and Newport Harbor High  in 1980.

Tiana started with State Farm Insurance in Costa Mesa CA in 1981.  She later transferred to the Bakersfield office in 1995 and again to Dallas, TX in 2013.

She had such a love for animals and was so happy to finally be able to own her own dogs, Cody and Colby.  These dogs were her pride and joy and brought her so much happiness each day.  She loved playing with them, taking walks, attending training classes and sharing stories about them. Just like a parent the photos and video’s on Facebook showed how proud she was of her dogs.

Tiana made many trips back down to Orange County on the weekends to spend time with family.  She had such special relationship’s with her nieces and nephew. They will always have the memories of her playing games, road trips, amusement parks, sleepovers, all the sporting games she watched them play and so many other things they did together.

She is survived by her father, Kenneth J. Leake and sister Zenda Marie (Leake) Sweller: Brother-in-law, Ray Sweller.

Niece: Lisa Marie (Sweller) Garcia(30) with her husband Carmelo M. Garcia and there son Landon M. Garcia: Also her nephew Raymond William Sweller(28) and niece Marissa Lynn Sweller(24).

Tiana also leaves behind  many friends and family including Aunts, Uncles and cousins.

Tiane will never be forgotten. She’ll always be in our memories and thoughts and they will keep her here with us in spirit. She is an angel now at peace in heaven with her mom and so many we love and miss. I will always remember the many holidays and family gathering together, a trip to Magic Mountain together with the kids, Knotts Berry Farm with our grandparents, and their real farm in MO where we played as kids, and especially the way she adored her nieces and nephew as if they were her own. You’ll always be a part of me Tiane and I’ll never forget you! I love you cousin!

Your beautiful smile, your readiness to help, your ability to teach and explain – these are just a few of the things I loved and appreciated. You were a friend and a co-worker and are missed. Hugs

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
