January 15, 1971 to June 2, 2021
Leona “Leah” Estelle Rogers, 50, of Pendleton, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones.
Born in Caldwell, Idaho to Naomi and Roscoe Haugsted, Leah was destined to be a bright ray of sunshine in everyone's lives.
She moved to Pendleton with her father when he was discharged from the service in late 1971. As a young girl she enjoyed spending time with her Grammy and Grandpa in Halfway, Oregon.
She attended Harris Junior Academy in Pendleton, graduating in 1989 from Upper Columbia Academy in Spangle, Washington and attended Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton.
She married Todd Peck in Pendleton. They raised two children: Tyson and Faun. The couple later divorced.
In 2015, after 5 years together, she married the love of her life Andy Rogers, with his 2 sons Devon and James, completing the family.
She enjoyed working a variety of jobs over the years including; 60 Minute Photo, Obie’s Import Repair, and Holiday Inn Express.
She found her true passion as a Learning Support Assistant/Paraprofessional at Pendleton Early Learning Center where “Miss Leah” positively affected many young lives. She was adored by students, parents, and staff alike.
Her strong faith was an ever present comfort to her.
Leah touched the hearts of everyone she met. Once you met her and got to experience one of her warm hugs, you were bound to be friends - she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Most important to her was spending time with her family and many friends.
She enjoyed camping, sewing, quilting, painting, traveling, gardening, crocheting and playing Covet fashion.
She was preceded in death by her mother Naomi Newton Haugstead, brothers Loran Haugsted and Daniel Walker, grandparents Florence and Andy Haugsted.
