Leisha D. (Burke) Rospert

Leisha D. (Burke) Rospert, age 58, of Norwalk, passed away Saturday, December 23, 2023, at Cleveland Metro Hospital surrounded by her family.

She was born March 1, 1965, in Madison, Indiana to the late William and Zelma (Brooks) Burke.

She was a 1983 graduate of Edison High School and received an associate degree from BGSU Firelands.

She was a founding advisor for the Huron County Clovers 4-H club and was also active in her accounting associations and served as a President for many years. She found the most meaning in life spending time with her family and being "Maw" to her grandchildren. When she wasn't with them, she was either on facetime or browsing her many photos of them.
