Marina "Renie" Leydekkers, age 81, passed away on Monday, December 14, 2020. She was born March 14, 1939.
Renie was born in New Jersey, graduated from Ramsey High School and started a career with American Finance in Paterson, New Jersey. Not only a career in the finance business, but also found the love of her life, her husband Henry in 1959, who worked for the same company. Renie married Henry in 1961 and her first daughter Debbie was born in 1962. Four years later in 1966, her second daughter Janet was born. Blessed with two great daughters, who currently reside in Prescott Valley and Goodyear, Arizona.
In 1976 Renie and Henry moved from New Jersey to California where Renie worked for several banks, such as Security Pacific National Bank, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and First Interstate Bank. In 2000 when Henry retired they moved to Bullhead City, Ariz. and took several cruises and vacations to Europe. Renie loved boating, RV'ing, watching westerns, Hallmark Christmas movies and visits from her two grandsons, Connor and Carson. She was also a member of the Colorado River Quilters, and her cabinet of quilts will show it! She made many friends there.
She is survived by her husband, Henry; daughters, Debbie and Janet; brother, Ray; grandchildren, Connor and Carson.
Rest in peace Renie, we will miss your smile and laughter. You will remain in our hearts forever.
