Jann Leverenz

PERRYSBURG, Ohio — Jann Lyn Leverenz, age 54, died Monday, November 5, 2012, at the Ohio Northwestern Hospice Center. She is survived by her husband, John Leverenz of Toledo, her father, Norman (Bud) Peacock, step mother, Edna Peacock of Blissfield; a son Richard of Toledo; her brother, Jeffery, his wife, Tracy and their sons Cody, CJ Peacock of Elyria, Ohio; and John’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Leverenz. Both Jann and her brother, Jeffery, were adopted from the Methodist Children’s Home. The first 20 years of their life was parented by Joann Russell (1931-1981) of Kalamazoo, and Norman Peacock. Both the Russell and the Peacock families were ecstatic over the addition and the children brought the utmost love to their families. One of Jann’s favorite pastimes when she was young was fishing, always outdoing her father and brother and she loved talking about it. One of Jann’s greatest gifts was making hundreds of original, specialized and intricate cards for the holidays, birthdays or just for fun to her loved ones. Her work of handmade drawings of both formal and imaginary scenery is highly revered by her family and close friends. Jann’s family wishes to acknowledge the excellent care provided by the Toledo Hospital as well as Hospice of Northwest Ohio. Upon Jann’s request, cremation has taken place. Due to the age of her family and the distances involved, the immediate family felt graveside services would be appropriate at a later date. Arrangements were handled by Wagley Funeral Home, Tagsold Chapel. Condolences are welcomed at www.WagleyFuneralHome.com
