Celebration of Life: Saturday, September 17, 2022, 4:00 P.M., Peterson Mortuary, 212 S. Locust Street, Glenwood, Iowa.

LeAnna Jane Heath was born October 4, 1980, in Council Bluffs, Iowa to Roger Gerald and Carolee (Smith) Heath. She went home to be with the Lord on September 10, 2022, in Glenwood, Iowa.

LeAnna graduated from Glenwood High School and went on to earn her Cosmetology Certificate. She was employed with Master Cuts before joining Suite 7 Salon. LeAnna loved making her clients feel beautiful and confident, and, as a result, her clients became life-long friends. She also worked in the accounting department at A&L Distributing in Omaha, where she met many people whom she also considered family.

She met the love of her life, Robert Sanchez, and together they had two children, Leo and Carmen. The precious time spent with her kids and family always made her happy. She and her family loved the College World Series and spending time on the youth baseball fields. LeAnna had an empathetic, selfless personality and an infectious giggle that brought joy to everyone around her. Rest in peace until we meet again, sweet LeAnna.

Preceding LeAnna in passing was her father. Survivors include Robert; children Leo and Carmen Sanchez; mother Carolee Heath all of Glenwood, Iowa; sisters Shannon (Andrew) Tilsworth of Kansas City, Missouri; Cindy (Toby) Wood of Glenwood, Iowa; Patti (Ron) Cahanding of Bellevue, Nebraska, several nieces, nephews, and extended relatives.

Interment at a later date: St. Paul’s Evangelical Country Church Cemetery, 11055 Dumfries Avenue, Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Memorial donations may be directed to the family.

    I got to know LeAnna when she started doing my hair for me at Master Cuts. I followed her to Suite 7, followed her when she left there, and then followed her back to Suite 7. I was thrilled for her when she started her family, gave birth to Leo and then Carmen. I have never met her mother or her sisters but feel I have known them for years through my visits with LeAnna. LeAnna talked about her children and all of her family with great love. Although I am her mother’s age, I counted LeAnna as a very dear friend. I was heartbroken for her when she called me to share her diagnosis. My heart aches for Robert, her children, her mother, her sisters, and all of her family and friends who loved her so much. Her giggle was indeed infectious, and her smile lit up the dreariest of days. She will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences.

    We were saddened to hear about this. I hadn’t seen LeAnna for a long time. My memories of LeAnne were swimming with her in my brother Bob’s pool. There was always a lot of laughter with her around. She will be missed for sure. But never forgotten. Depest of sympathy to her family. Karen Roll

    It is so hard to find the right words to show you how deep I feel for all of your loss. So I will remind you that you will see your sweet LeAnna again. She will be as beautiful as this picture shows her with no disease and no pain. She will be with Angels and all who have gone before. Blessings and Love.

    I got to know Leanna from golf in high school. Though we never talked after high school, I will always remember her. She had a stunning personality and I laughed often with her. I am so sorry for your loss, she was an amazing person and I know she will be remembered by many.

    I am so sad for Carollee Robert and sweet Leo and Carmen , Patti Cindy and Shannon. and their spouses. It is such a great loss. LeAnna had the most lovely smile. You could tell she was kind. And she was an excellent hairstylist. She made us comfortable and she cared. Thinking of you all.

    I never really knew Leanna I had seen her at the shop. I know she was amazingly beautiful and her personality was absolutely amazing. I would see her around Kelsey at work and the love they have for each other was never ending they will be in each other’s hearts forever just as Robert will be in Leanna’s and her children’s fly high angel

  • Carrie McDonald Posted September 16, 2022 12:43 pm

    LeAnna was a selfless, kind, loving human who I will forever hold close to my heart. She always amazed me with her quick witted sense of humor. Memories of LeAnna making me laugh so hard I’d be wiping tears will forever be with me. Wishing lots of love and strength to her children, Robert, her mother and sisters.
