“Her wings were ready, our hearts were not.”
On August 24, 2019, at the St. Cloud Hospital, God called home 67 year old Rebecca Ann Leedahl of Glenwood, MN, a beautiful soul who only recently learned she had Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Rebecca was born on November 25, 1951, to Thomas H. and Dianne (Nelson) Leedahl, in Minneapolis, MN. She had a heart full of love for everyone who crossed her path. She was artistically talented and her family will forever cherish the Christmas bulbs she made for them every Christmas. She was talented in so many areas of life and taking care of children and dogs was her passion. She doted on her siblings’ children, as she never had any of her own. She will forever hold a spot in the hearts of her nieces and nephews, Jenny, Nikki (Ben), Blake (Marlem), Jamie (Matt), Ashley (Greg), Heather, Morgen and Josh. She very much enjoyed being a great aunt to Ashley, Emma, Leia, Jackson, Sophia, Andrew, Oliver, Hudson, Molly and Phoebe. She was very loved by her sisters and brothers, Lisa (Ralph) Ondracek, Cindy (Russ) Anacker, David (Lisa) Leedahl, and Chris (Jana) Leedahl. She also had many friends and extended family who will miss her, including her closest friends that she considered family, Suzette and Bill, the Masko family and others who are too numerous to mention. She was welcomed into heaven with open arms by her parents, Thomas and Dianne; her nephew-in-law, Tim; and Chloe, her special Yorkie whom she considered a best friend; and many others that she held so dear who have passed away.
There will be no services per her wishes but the family plans to have a private burial, with inurnment near her parents in Glenwood Cemetery.
