Leila was born in Bradenton, Florida on August 7, 1954 to Lee and Mary Harrell. She lived a full and happy life as a daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother, and grandmother. Leila left a mark on all those she encountered and loved. She has blessed them with many cherished moments and memories of her through her love for Jesus, music, and art.

Leila loved the Lord and used her God-gifted artistic talent of drawing to minister to others joy and love through cards that she made.
