Leila Mae Clark


In loving memory of Leila Mae Clark, Dec. 30, 2013-March 22, 2014. “Heaven’s gain was our loss as our pumpkin received her angel wings after losing her fight with congenital heart disease.”

During her short time here on earth, Leila touched the lives of many and was loved deeply by family and friends. Leila was loved instantly by all who met her, and will be greatly missed.

She is being greeted in Heaven by her great-aunt Alice (Koch) Gill; great-uncle Curtis Clark; her mother’s grandmothers Marie Buechel and Florence Lefeber; her father’s grandparents Martha and Lester Koch, and Arden Clark; and many more loved ones who have passed on.

In addition to her Papa and Mama Bear Jeremiah and Lisa (Lefeber) Clark, she will be forever loved and missed by her grandparents Paul and Janice (Buechel) Lefeber, and Barry and Bonnie (Koch) Clark; uncles Francis Lefeber and Matthew (DeeAnna) Clark; cousins Nolan and Weston Clark; honorary aunt Rachel Rottman and honorary uncle Patrick Koerner; and many great aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. The family would like to thank the numerous doctors and staff of Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee for their incredible care given to Leila and her parents during Leila’s 49 day stay there whilst recovering from open heart surgery; and a very special thank you to Dr. Rohit Loomba, cardiologist fellow, for showing so much interest and care for the baby girl even when she was not in his care.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, March 29, 2014, from 3-7 p.m. at the Uecker-Witt Funeral Home, 524 N. Park Ave. in Fond du Lac. A memorial service will follow at 7 p.m. with the Rev. Eric Kirkegaard presiding. Cremation will follow the services.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being established in Leila’s name. Please make contributions to the family.

“We will forever love you, our Pumpkin Pie. Now take those wings and fly high!”
