Celebration of Life Services for Mrs. LeAnn Denise Morgan Duke, age 62, of Livingston will be conducted 11 a.m., Saturday, January 11, 2020 from the West End Church of Christ. Bro. Tim Smith, Bro. David Hill, Bro. Glenn Ramsey, and Bro. Bob Howton will officiate. Burial will follow at a later date in the Overton County Memorial Gardens. The family will welcome friends on Saturday morning from 9 a.m. until time of services at 11 a.m. at the West End Church of Christ.

Mrs. Duke passed from this life on Monday afternoon, January 6, 2020 from the comfort of her home. She was born July 26, 1957 in South Bend, IN to the late John W. & Modena M. Slatton Morgan. LeAnn's first passion was serving the Lord. She loved singing hymns, studying the Bible, and helping the poor, the abused, and the sick and teaching others the Bible. She loved and adored her children and grandchildren and was thrilled to spent time with them. LeAnn loved traveling and working with Kerry. She was blessed to go to Russia, Taiwan, and Singapore with him as well as numerous places in the U.S. to spread the gospel. She also enjoyed traveling to different places in the United States just to relax.

LeAnn loved writing, where her articles appeared in Christian Woman magazine and other gospel publications. She contributed two chapters to the book "My Sister's Keeper" which has gone through numerous printings. She also wrote an unpublished mystery novel. LeAnn enjoyed crafts of all kinds and was especially good at making bows for weddings and other occasions. After an almost five-year battle with a blood cancer LeAnn has found peace in the arms of our Lord. She was a giver, and was at her best and the most content when she could do something for others. LeAnn spend endless hours listening to people's problems and study the same to prepare herself to teach others. She bore heavy burdens and fought a good fight until the end.

LeAnn leaves behind her loving husband of 30 years, Bro. Kerry Duke of Livingston, TN; sons, Brady Wright & wife Kayla of Cookeville, TN, and Jared Duke & wife Amy of Springfield, OR; daughters, Amy Sexton & husband Chris of Pleasant Shade, TN, and Lacey Hall & husband Adam of Baxter, TN; grandchildren, Brileigh Hall, Emry Hall, Nolie Sexton, Josie Sexton, Taylor Sexton, Brian Wright, and Lilleann Wright; adopted sons, Mxolisi Ncube of Zimbabwe, Robert Ati Amukwei of Ghana, and Vishal Srinivas of India; daughter in the Lord, Candy Chan of Malaysia.

In addition to her parents, LeAnn was preceded in death by her first husband, Brian L. Wright; and brother, Jerry Morgan.
