April 13, 1937 - June 16, 2021
Leora Black, of Moses Lake, WA, passed away on June 16th, 2021. She was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. She lead a full and productive life with all of its many gifts. Leora was born to her parents, Fletcher & Eva Batts, on April 13th, 1937, in Seattle, WA, and had 3 sisters. She was married to her wonderful husband, Jim Black, for nearly 46 years and had 4 beautiful children, 12 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Leora and her husband lost their beautiful, second-born, daughter, Sherri Rodgers, tragically in 2012 and a beautiful grandson, Zachary Hubbard, tragically in 2011. Leora married her husband’s brother, Jesse Black, a couple of years later after losing her beloved Jim and was married to Jesse for another 6 years. Her homes have all been in Washington state including Seattle, the Skagit County, Bridgeport, Quincy, Moses Lake and lastly, in E. Wenatchee, where she passed away. Leora worked many jobs in her life being a devoted wife and mother first, did secretarial work, waitressed for many years, did small self-employed jobs and retail store work. Leora was such a hard, devoted worker and people loved her. Her personality was bright, thoughtful, diligent and so sweet. She loved beauty, loved tending her flower beds, yard and home and traveling. The later part of her life, Leora battled with her health but always kept a positive attitude wanting to regain her health and bounce back. Her anchor in her heart and life was knowing her Savior, Jesus Christ, and was such a lighthouse to many with her faith. She attended the First Church of the Nazarene in Moses Lake and loved going to church all her life. Leora had so many memories of her own and could tell them with such “sparkle” and detail! Her surviving family is: Daughter, Mary Hubbard of Eureka, MT, son, Dave Black, of E. Wenatchee, WA, daughter, JoAnn McCombs of San Diego, CA, and grandchildren & great grandchildren “sprinkled” in Snohomish County of WA, Fife,WA, Idaho, California & Montana. We all, as her beloved family, will miss our beautiful Mother, Grandmother and friend. Leora’s memorial service will be June 29th, 2021, at the First Church of the Nazarene in Moses Lake, WA, at 11am. Please join us in celebrating and giving honor to this beautiful woman’s life.
