Leah Kramer

Oct. 23, 1962-Sept. 18, 2015

Leah Ann Kramer, 52, died on Friday, Sept. 18, 2015.

She was born in Lebanon to Kenneth R. and Rosanne (Graves) Culbertson.

She was raised in Sweet Home and graduated from Sweet Home High School.

Mrs. Kramer owned her own home business called Leah’s Gifts.

She was a prayer intercessor and a warrior in the spirit. Her relationship with Jesus Christ was always strong. She remained faithful to her beliefs no matter what she endured.

She was a master gardener, a true green thumb. She treated her plants like children and marveled at the power of the growth of a seed, because of the stories in the bible about seeds.

Leah is survived by her husband, Robert “Bob” Kramer; daughters, Tamara Horn and Hannah Owen; mother, Rosanne Culbertson; siblings Aaron and Philip Culbertson; and seven grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her dad, Kenneth Culbertson, in 2008 and brother Zane Culbertson in 2009.

Memorial service will be at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday Sept. 24 at River Center in Lebanon. Burial will be at Gilliland Cemetery.

Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling arrangements.
