ELLSWORTH – Leeona Christine Marie Warren – The world welcomed an angel child in the early morning hours of Aug. 25, 2016. She was immediately placed peacefully into the arms of her loving father, Matthew Warren.
She is forever survived by Matthew and Kassie Herrick-Warren, her mother. Together they had chosen the name of Leeona Christine Marie Warren. She was named after her great-great-grandmother, her Mammie Joe, and a special cousin, Laura Marie. Leeona was born absolutely beautiful and touched the hearts of every life she came across. From there her heart kept reaching out as she donated enough of herself and her most vital organs to save the life of five other babies. The fact that her heart continues to beat in the lives of others brings great comfort to those left behind.
Her grandparents, Tammy and Danny Herrick of Gouldsboro; Melanie Warren, Dale and Doe Cook, Paul and Jody Warren, all of Ellsworth, their hearts have been broken by this tragedy. She also leaves behind many aunts and uncles, Jordan Herrick of Epping, N.H., Emily, Jonathan and Kristen and spouse, Josh Morren, all of Ellsworth. She will be in the hearts of her many great-grandparents and a special great-great-grandmother, Leona Mae Denbow of Lubec. Leeona’s memory will also be tucked into the hearts and souls of her godparents, Levi and Destiny Soper of Ellsworth.
“As close to my heart as you will ever be, forever and always, you and me.”
