Leanne Hunt

Hunt, Leanne (Speth)
Demonstrating beauty and strength of spirit until the very end, Leanne Marie (Speth) Hunt, 46, of Phoenix, Arizona passed away on Thursday, October 31 as a result of injuries sustained in a fall. She was born on March 21, 1967 in Madison, WI to Jerry Speth and Lorraine Stamm and graduated from Oregon High School in 1985. Always brave and adventurous, she left for Texas immediately upon graduation and began a successful, multi-state career in sales and marketing. Although she had many accomplishments including owning several successful businesses, her biggest thrill was becoming a mom in 2010 to Samantha (Sam) Marie Campuzano. Sam was the light and love of her mother's life. Guided by the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "for it is in giving that we receive," the final act of Leanne's life was giving the gift of life through organ donation. She is survived by her daughter Sam; parents Jerry (Judi) Speth of Dodgeville, WI; mother Lorraine (Ron) Stamm of Phillips, WI; brothers Steve Speth of Tucson, AZ and Paul (Andrea) Speth of Evansville, WI. She was preceded in death by her grandparents Joseph and Julia Speth and Emil and Stephania Pass as well as her brother Steve's partner, Keith Andes. A celebration of Leanne's life will be held on Monday, November 4, 2013 at Dignity Funeral Home Chapel, 200 W. Beardsley Rd. Friends may call from 9-10am with memorial services at 10am. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Samantha Campuzano Memorial Fund, Steve Speth Conservator, 9749 E. 5th St., Tucson, Arizona.
