Virginia Beach -

Bonita E. Leavitt, 67, passed away on Saturday, January 4, 2014 in her home.

Born in Denver, CO, she was preceded in death by her father, Wilbur F. Ensey and her twin sister, Juanita L. Heiser. She was a graduate of (Panama) Canal Zone Community College, Florida State University where she received her B.A and her M.S.. through the School of Library Science. She was a member of Community United Methodist Church, United Methodist Women, Order of Eastern Star (King Carter Chapter) in Kilmarnock, VA and the Panama Canal Association.

Left to cherish Bonita's memory: her husband, Charles H. Leavitt, Jr.; son, Charles H. Leavitt, III of Virginia Beach; her mother, Patricia L. Ensey of Duluth, MN; brother, Mark D. Ensey and Linda of Duluth, MN and two nieces, Shanon L. Ensey and Christon L. Ensey.

Bonita excelled as a gifted Lay Servant (Lay Speaker) and Sunday School teacher. She was a gentle spirit and a strong witness for life that she lived joyously and triumphantly despite major health challenges. Also, Bonita was a mighty prayer warrior and loved unconditionally. With all of her gifts and graces, Bonita was most especially enabled as a helpmate to her husband and a nurturer to their son. Truly, she transformed their family dwelling into a home. She will be sorely missed by her family and those whose lives she touched!

A memorial service will be held at 2:p.m., Sunday, January 26, 2014 at Community United Methodist Church. Arrangements are under the direction of Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Kempsville Chapel. In lieu of flowers, contributions should be sent to Community United Methodist Church, 1072 Old Kempsville Rd., Virginia Beach, VA 23464.
