Leah L. Clark, age 6, passed away on Monday, September 14, 2020 unexpectedly.
Leah was a 1st grader at Wayland-Cohocton School. She was a happy, and very loved, child- she lit up every room she walked into. Leah loved her "babies" and kittens, she was a very good swimmer and couldn't wait to play on any tire swing she saw. She also had a deep passion for the Tooth Fairy and believed she was more magical than Santa!
Leah is predeceased by her maternal grandparents, Elizabeth & Douglas Smith; and her maternal uncle, Charles Smith.
Leah is survived by her parents, Derek Clark & Maria Smith; paternal grandparents, Lisa (Steve Pasquali) Clark & Elmond (Sherry) Clark; her maternal aunt & uncle: Kristi (Jay) Longbine & Patrick (Amy) Mullen; her paternal aunts: Jessica (Garrett) Williams, Alicia Clark, Kasey (Leo) Bricks & Angie Freas; her paternal great-grandparents: Edward Jr. & Sandy Freas and Mary Clark; her cousins: Nathan Longbine, Gage Butters, Rayna Krise, Haylen Mullen, Ethan Clark, Kendra Barnhardt, Carter Chabot, Lexi Williams, & Lincoln Bricks; and many cousins & friends. The family would like to thank Mary Bricks, Melissa Bricks-Carney & Mike Bricks with their generosity in donating one of their family plots to Leah.
