Leila M. Boeckel of Ramona, California, passed away on October 24, 2013, following complications from surgery. Her life began at Glasgow, Montana, along with four sisters and one brother. During her childhood she moved, with her family, to San Diego, CA. She married in 1954 and raised three daughters with her husband.
Leila had a rewarding thirty year career with the San Diego Unified School district as an educator and librarian at Morse, La Jolla, Kearny and Serra high schools.
She was devoted to supporting her daughters and grandchildren with love and guidance. Her door was always open to a world of patience, understanding and empathy, which she clearly demonstrated each day of her wondrous life. As one would expect of a librarian, she was an avid reader of novels and historical books. There was always at least one book within her reach. With her death, the book of her life passed with her final sunset.
She is survived by her three daughters; seven grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
A memorial service to honor her is scheduled for November 17, 2013, at 3pm at 4144 Campus Avenue, San Diego, CA. Everyone is welcome.
