Leah Michele (Strange) Arnold

May 20, 1969 ~ November 14, 2021 (age 52)


Leah Michele Arnold, 52, passed away Sunday, November 14, 2021 at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland. Leah is survived by her mother, Bonita; her husband, Gordon Arnold; and her children Jarod and Allison Arnold.

Leah was born on May 20, 1969 in Evansville, Indiana to Edward Alan Strange and Bonita Sue (Underhill) Strange. She married Gordon in 1990, welcoming into their family Jarod in 1991 and Allison in 1993. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Walsh College in 2001.

Leah was an avid reader, and a lover of candles, fireplaces, and all things comfortable and cozy. She loved to cook, and was always excited to trade recipes or try something new. She adored dogs and adopted many rescues. Leah was fiercely loyal, endlessly generous, and kind to a fault. She was a devoted mother, loving wife, and cherished friend, and she will be missed dearly.

A memorial service will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers, her family asks that donations be made to the American Heart Association in her honor here:
